Etoile Molène


The Etoile Molène was built in 1954 in Camaret. This versatile boat was initially used to fish tuna in the Bay of Biscay, and then for trawling in Ireland. After being laid up at the port in Douarnenez, she was abandoned and sank a few years later. She was salvaged by skipper Bob Escoffier, who purchased and completely restored her before sailing her in the Route du Rhum solo transatlantic yacht race in 1994. Unfortunately, the tuna ketch and her skipper were obliged to abandon the race. Now based in Saint Malo, the Etoile Molène offers a wide variety of day trips. Take the opportunity to admire her elegant yellow and orange sails in Bordeaux!
