To showcase its Prestige line of motoryachts and express cruisers, French boatbuilder Jeanneau welcomes select guests to its impressive factory in Les Herbiers in western France. Prospective boat buyers, dealers, and a few lucky journalists got a glimpse of the entire boatbuilding process from the design and engineering studios to the yard where the boats are loaded for truck delivery. Oh and there was a really nice lunch with a little champagne as well!
