Latitude 46 is a builder of both sailing and motor boats and has been based in France for the last 25 years on the Ile de Re. From Australia, through Japan to Bresil, many have succumbed to the charms of these boats with their classical lines beneath which lies the hightest standard of modern construction. And it is here that the unique strenght of the compagny lies; preservation of unique French boat building skills, linked to the most modern methods od building with wood and composites. Without forgetting that each of the Latitude 46 designs bears the signature of Joubert / Nivelt, naval architects whose reputations extend well beyond the borders of Europe.
