Bird E Marine is a company from Nantes that designs and sells a range of electric watercraft on foils for the boating and river tourism market.
In 2017 the leaders of a large hotel chain expressed their wish to renew their jet ski park. They were looking for gear more in tune with the times less noisy and less polluting.

Franck Thomas, the leader and founder of Bird-e-Marine begins to talk about the subject.

The solution is the concept of foil, these composite wings that, by reducing friction, make the boats fly.

The goal: Create gear more in tune with their times, less noisy and less polluting.
