50 Years Of Passion: The Ultimate Pleasure Of Sailing
In 1964 Michel Dufour, an engineer from La Rochelle and passionate about sailing, launched his creation of a naval workshop which had to succeed. The first boat came about thanks to new design techniques and developments in innovative composite materials. At the same time, the rest of the sailing world were maintaining the pioneering spirit of the adventurer, Dufour was pushing for the simple pleasure of sailing.
Based in La Rochelle, Dufour Yachts, are one of only a few french yacht builders. If you like the style of Dufour Yachts, which continue to innovate and shake up the conventions, they offer you an unrivalled pleasure on the sea.

The Great Journey Has Begun with Aries AMS Marine
The history of Feeling began in 1912 when the shipyard Kirié, was founded by the family of the same name, taking shape in a small garage, rue de la Forêt in Les Sables d'Olonne.
In the beginning the workshop built small pleasure craft in wood. During the 1950's the production turned towards powerboats. During the 1960's, and passionate about competition, the son of the founder ran in a number of powerboat races, the "Six heures de Paris". At the end of the 60's, the business had grown and moved to the Château d'Olonne, close to Les Sables d'Olonne. It became one of the first boat builders to work with polyester resins and launched the first hobby fishing motorboat "Angel of the sea", and in a similar line but with a sail, the "Fifty".
At the start of the 1980's, Kirié launched a range of sailing boats. Fast, liveabord cruisers named "Feeling". In 1986, the Feeling 13,50m was the winner of the Route du Rhum for that category of boat. The Feeling 10,90m was voted "Boat of the year" in 1987.
The Feeling designers were already proposing a version with either a fixed or lifting keel.
In 2000, Alliaura Marine took over Kirié and continued the dévelopment of this superb range that is Feeling. Moreover, in the same year, the Feeling 32 was voted "Sailing Yacht Of The Year" in a review by the french magazine "Voile Magazine" (Sailing Magazine). Since then, the range has not ceased to evolve and preserves the strength, the performance and the quality of finish, directly through their craftmanship.
Today, they are owned by Privilège Marine. The range of Feeling comprises of 6 versions, from 32 to 55 feet.
