Steve French opening a yacht construction company has been long anticipated by those close to him. He did not brand some of the boats he built earlier in life for respect of the other builders that he designed for. Due to the love of boat building and soul searching with his sons it was clear that French Yachts was meant to be.
French Yachts is based in Stuart, Florida and is partnered with Rebel Marine to bring the best in everything we do for you more efficiently. Rebel has an exceptional team of boat builders lead by David Carty, a fine yacht designer and master shipwright. The partnership began with the construction of the exceptional 41’ Jager as a team effort between the companies. The workmanship was so impressive to Mr. French that it solidified a lifelong relationship where both facilities produce components in tandem to the same strict set of standards that French Yachts is known for.
French has worked for some time to open an operation in Orange Beach, Alabama and still intends to do so when the time is right. The intention is to be able to service boats in both the Gulf and on the East Coast. Coupled with their relationship with Rebel Marine down in the Antilles, owners will never be too far for a friendly service call.
