Though our auction house is well renowned through all its departments, our company has been historically specialized in the auction of collection cars ; an adventure that has been going on for over 35 years.
A few years ago, The collection cars department, managed by Stephane Pavot made the decision, for the first time in France, to sell out vintage canoes (Riva, Chris Craft, Hors Edges and Runabouts ...) for over-the-counter market.
The enthusiasm generated by this new category led us to inaugurate a place solely dedicated to motor boating.: The French Center of the Motor Boat, located on the basin of Arcachon (184 av Denis Papin 33115 La Teste-de-buch).
This place is intended to bring together vintage canoes lovers by offering them, in the same place, a museum, a restaurant, a library and a restoration workshop.
It's in this unique place in France of 1400 m2 that we’ll be organizing our sales of outboards and runabouts, whose gathering seems to be an essential factor of success.
