JFA Yachts was founded in March 1993 at Concarneau in Brittany, a region in France rich in maritime heritage.

Kermor, a 75’ light displacement sailing yacht, was the first yacht produced by the shipyard. Kermor means ‘ house on the sea’ in Bretton. Her owner christened the yacht after a hotel on the ‘Sables Blancs‘ beach in Concarneau where he took up residence during the construction of the yacht.

“It was fascinating going through this building process with JFA, I felt I was at home. My Yacht is called Kermor and will indeed be my home on the water. Kermor is just as I imagined her, we built her together.” Kermor’s owner.

These words still resonate at JFA Yachts because they resume perfectly the shipyards’ approach: we don’t build a yacht for a client, but with a client. This characterizes what we call today, a Boutique Shipyard; where the expertise, the savoir-faire, and family environment make the construction project into a unique experience.

Today  nearly 60 yachts, both sailing and motor, monohull and multihull, built from both aluminium and composite explore the planet. Not one has really left JFA Yachts’ sight.
