Discover the Liteboat team spirit
The Liteboat team isn't just a group of workers. When you buy a boat, you're buying the result of hours and hours of precise work done with passion by enthusiasts, in the French Alps. At Liteboat, we are and will be always driven by passion.

What is your work at Liteboat ?
I arrived at Liteboat as a composite technician, and today I am a workshop foreman. I manage the workshop which takes care of the assembly of the boats (hulls and decks are built in two different molds then glued together) and also the finishing (installation of all the equipment, touch-ups of the gelcoat if necessary, preparation of the accessories).
What makes you motivated about this work ?
The manual side and the precision necessary for the manufacture of a boat on the one hand, but also the management of the workshop to obtain the same level of quality for each boat. We try to have the same requirements on the boats as the one we want on the equipment that we buy for our own leisure.
What are your links to sport and outdoor activities ?
Sports and the outdoors are part of my daily life. I came to settle in the region (French Alps) for this reason. I particularly enjoy outdoor sports such as climbing, ski touring but also trail running...
If you should choose one boat in the range, which one would you take ?
Having rowed a lot very young, I would choose the LiteRiver. It is the most efficient boat in calm waters for a person who already knows how to row. Otherwise the LiteSport 1X is an excellent boat to go on one or more days of adventure with some equipment!
