On 19 April 2016, EURO-VOILES celebrated its 50th anniversary.
The EURO-VOILES-RIVIERA PLAISANCE group now represents a turnover of more than €28 million, and confirms its position as a leader in the yachting sector. EURO-VOILES being the first distribution and service company in the field of yachting on a single site.
It is not in itself this ranking that interests us.
For us, this ranking is the result of a constant strategy where the customer is at the centre of our attention.
Even if the EURO-VOILES-RIVIERA PLAISANCE group is the first buyer of the SPBI JEANNEAU group in France, the SUZUKI group, ZODIAC, the Accastillage Diffusion franchise, ARIMAR, ATLAS-AREA group, etc.
Following our predecessors, we have never given in to the temptation of 'All Sales' and the Services, Repairs activity has always been maintained and developed in line with our customer's demand.
It is the result of this strategy which today positions us at this level, but which has enabled us to weather a few economic storms and remain profitable on a continuous basis for 25 years, it is also a guarantee for our customers.
So, for this year, we would first of all like to thank our customers, to thank them for their trust, sometimes their tolerance and ultimately for their loyalty.
