A line of boats designed for long cruises
Designed by Daniel .Z. Bombigher.
Maximum comfort for marine life
While creating the “Shpountz” series, Daniel Z. Bombigher imagined boats especially designed for high ocean sailings.
Their design provides maximum comfort for marine life : space, stability, strength and maneuverability.
For the record , “Shpountz” comes from an old gypsy word meaning the “ village idiot”, the dreamer, the one who communicates with the elements, plants and animals better than with humans.

An incomparable comfort at the sea as well as at the mooring
Our history with Daniel Bombigher's " Shpountzs " began in the office of the latter, more than thirty years ago, when we bought from him the plans for our 38/40.
This wonderful boat gave us and our children a fabulous tropical sailing experience during six years.
Don't think that this type of rig is complex or difficult to handle ! It is even easier than modern sailboats. And moreover, it provides an incomparable comfort at the sea as well as at the mooring.
Our Shpountz 38/40 was also for us the completion of our experience as amateur boatbuilders.
After such a construction project, we could proceed to the next step, the professional boatbuilding. We have now built eleven boats of all sizes designed by Daniel Z.Bombigher, from the Mediterranean 6.50m “Pointu” to 17m Overall Merry Dream.
