History of the company

Model range

Ted Fontaine has been designing fast boats for competitions for many years, and this has had an impact on Friendship's model range: the company produces sports cruise boats from 11 to 23 meters long.

The shipyard's sailboats attract attention with their design in the style of classic yachts. Their smooth lines, round portholes and a large number of lacquered wood elements convey the atmosphere of the 20s and 40s.

Despite the classic look, the yachts are certainly different from their centuries-old counterparts. All modern control systems, including automatic winches, navigation and ship control systems and much more are installed here. These are comfortable boats made to order.
