Black Pepper ® Yachts, based in Nantes near the Atlantic coast, has built its reputation on its “Codes”, high-performance sailing boats from 27′ to 72′ with such an elegant and vintage neo-retro design.

This reputation was further enhanced with the construction of  prestigious “One Off” racing prototypes designed for racing the Vendée Globe , a solo and without assistance all around the world race: Bureau Vallée (ex l’Occitane en Provence); Initiatives-Cœur and OceansLab Innovations.

Black Pepper® now completes its offer with the launch of its new catamaran Code C.69 in the world of top-of-the-range multihulls.

Tenders are also an integral part of the Black Pepper® fleet.
