Marc Vuilliomenet has decided to start the production of this traditional Mediterranean fishing boat, ideally suited to recreational use…
Of robust construction, using mahogany strip planking and epoxy adhesive, the Mediterranean Pointu can sail all year round. Over-wintering on land is also possible as drying out is not a problem with these modern materials.
Designed for up to six passengers and fitted with the most recent low-pollution diesel engine.
Several options are available, as extras to the basic model.
The hatches are in place, the mahogany trim being varnished and the paintwork started…
Once the hull is finished and righted, the mahogany slats and the bulkheads (creating buoyancy
compartments) are fitted. The motor is placed between two watertight bulkheads to meet European standards.
A construction in cold moulded mahogany. 3 crossed layers, glued with epoxy, using a vacuum pump system for good results. The mahogany frames are then attached to the hull, joining the keel, stem and stern post.
The first Pointu was launched in the Port of St. Raphaël in November of 2006.
The construction of the next boat will start this winter; This version will have a cabin and staysail rig.
Built of cold moulded timber (wood / epoxy); Unsinkable, with self-bailing cockpit; 13 HP modern diesel engine.
LOA: 19'6" Beam: 7'6" Draft: 1'7" Displacement: 2,156 lbs
Capacity: 6 persons
Some of the available options:
135 square foot staysail;
Marine varnished hull.
This dinghy was designed by the architect François Vivier who has christened her "Ebihen".
Her length overall is 4M50, built in mahogany strip-planking (bois-moulé in French),
then varnished to my usual high quality standards.
A traditional skiff for sailing alone or with your family; Easy and flexible to sail, the Ebihen's metal centreboard gives her excellent stability and the possibility of sailing to the wind.
The Ebihen is available with several different rigs, the Lugsail (illustrated on my site) for those who prefer simplicity; Traditional Gaff for more experienced sailors who will appreciate the lively handling, and "Bourcet-Malet" (Lugsail with standing lug mizzen), a rig commonly used in the channel and ideally suited to fishing.
The Ebihen is ideally suited to be carried on a road trailer (available as an option).
Those who prefer powered transport are not forgotten, as an outboard can be fitted in a well. The recommended type and power is 6HP 4-stroke.
Her large cockpit is perfect for safe cruising…
Built of Plywood-Epoxy, length overall 3m80, beam of 1m60, displacement 100kg, totally un-sinkable, easily adjustable sail area, without centre-board.
1 sheet on a cleat, tiller in the hand, nothing else to be said…
Designed to sail in French category C for 3 persons and D for 4 persons. Zen was designed by François Vivier and sails on the lightest of breezes…

The deck plan is adapted following the planned use for the boat, bench seats, waterproof lockers, etc.
Easy to row, Zen's high freeboard makes her suitable for family use, ensuring safety for young children.
