Founded by Bertrand Danglade in 1996, Rhea Marine has become a benchmark brand in the motor pleasure boat industry. The first Rhea boat was the 900 created in the new shipyard. It was quickly followed by the first in the Timonier range, the 750. Since the first one from the production hall they have built almost 300 of this model alone. In 2001 Rhea Marine stepped in to the larger market with the launch of the Rhea 1100. In 2002 the success of the range saw the company move into larger, purpose built premises in La Rochelle, France. Further investment in modern machinery allowed an increase in production and expansion of the range.
In 2003 the yard launched the 'Open' range to meet the demands of pleasure day trips.
Over the next few years many new models were introduced successfully. In 2008 the first one with hydrojet option was introduced, along with the 40 knot barrier being broken! 2009 saw the launch of the stunning Trawler range.
Rhea Marine and their agents work closely with their owners, and we pride ourselves on offering high quality, reliable services. Happy, satisfied owners that love using their boats are our main concern.
