Created in 1987, Construction Navale Bordeaux is part of Groupe Beneteau. Based in Bordeaux, on the banks of the Garonne River, just few miles away from the greatest vineyards, the shipyard is located on a 105 000 square meters lot with about 56 000 square meters of covered buildings. A 300 meters long deep-water dock enables launching and sea trials on the waterfront. Today, Construction Navale Bordeaux is counting more than 1 000 employees.

The Bordeaux shipyard has acquired an international fame in qualitative boat building and finishing with three major brands:
- Lagoon, cruising catamarans world leader with a 38 to 78 feet range.
- EXCESS, catamarans which embody both sportsmanship & modernity.

Master of all the shipbuilding trades and the knowledge in aluminum and composite materials, the shipyard is the symbol of the skilled French Expertise with more than 4 800 boats built. The mission of Construction Navale Bordeaux is summarized through a sentence written by its founders Dieter Gust and Olivier Lafourcade: “As confirmed sailors, we all know that our boats have to be fast, comfortable and safe: seaworthy. We are building them based on our love of the sea and the constant aim of good quality work. We design them as if we were the future owners. As shipbuilders and sailors, it is part of our logic”.
