In French maritime slang, the bachi is the headgear of sailors and quartermasters of the Navy. Made of blue woolen cloth, it is topped with a red pompom in the French navy.
The 200 model – known as the Bachi – is a 17cm tuna boat. Made of beech wood, from the forests of Brittany, this boat is equipped with a Bermuda-type cotton sail.
This boat was handcrafted in the Breton workshop Maison Tirot according to the same know-how, the same gestures, passed down from generation to generation since 1946.
Robust, it will follow you all your life if you give it the little bit of care it needs.
Wood is a living material that reacts to water. Despite all the care taken in the manufacture of our boats, prolonged contact with water may deteriorate. It is important to let your boat dry in the shade and away from excessive heat after each use.
Good luck sailor!
