The design
of innovative marine
leisure products

In 2018, customers and their opinions are the focal point of the evolution process of marine leisure products.

It is essential that we create new products that meet their expectations and their needs while respecting the technical constraints of implementation by marine leisure service providers.

What actions have been planned
as part of the project?

Nautisme en Bretagne, the association that works for the development and promotion of regional marine leisure activities, is one of the project’s five French partners.

As part of CAPITEN, Nautisme en Bretagne coordinates actions related to innovative products, aimed at raising awareness in new audiences, integrating new technologies or suggesting new activities to marine leisure users looking for a change.

What are the benefits for professionals?

The conceptualised products will mostly be presented and tested at mainstream events. They will then be adjusted to best meet the needs identified and the targeted audience.

Detailed product sheets will then be downloadable as of 2019. These will be aimed at boat clubs and territories looking to diversify the range of activities they offer.

Training will be arranged and offered to professionals in the sector who want to offer the products to their members from 2020.
