HISTORY OF THE FRENCH BOAT MARIE JEANNE
Discover the Marie Jeanne, wooden model of this French tuna boat. Dedicated to tuna fishing during the months from June to October, this fishery reached the coast of Mauritania in trips of up to two months, since the tunas are usually far from the coast. Guided by our detailed step-by-step instructions you can complete your replica of this beautiful fishing boat.
Leaving the French port of Concarneau the Marie Jeanne sailed between 1900 and 1950. Tuna fishing requires strong and fairly fast boats. In the beginning these ships were built for other tasks, usually too heavy.
At the end of the 19th Century new types of fishing were developed, small and with large sails. The advances and the tendency towards the motor propulsion contributed to the disappearance of these elegant fishing boats of multi-colored sails.
