Home The NV Brand Made in France

Made in France,
quality guaranteed

Total control
of our production

Over 45 years, the French company NVequipment has built an independent business model that combines traditional craftsmanship with industrial performance.

The NV brand is now a guarantee of precision know-how customised to each request or each project. A wide range of equipment for boats and crew is designed and manufactured entirely in-house, in the company’s design office, based in Saint-Gilles-Croix-de-Vie, between Nantes and La Rochelle. To do so, NV relies on the expertise of the various teams trained in several professions.

Our aim is to offer all boat owners the pleasure of sailing and freely enjoying their passion to the full.

Made in France by NVequipment means we can promise our customers, both manufacturers and retailers, products that include technicality, design and performance. All our products are not only fully designed, but also assembled and manufactured in our only production site, located in Saint-Gilles-Croix-de-Vie in the Vendée.

“We have set ourselves a high bar, which allows us to innovate and shake things up, year after year, and adapt to the demands of our customers and boat owners”, Pascal Cardi, director of NVequipment.

Sailing pleasure

NV protection and comfort equipment is designed to bring you the most pleasure out of sailing. Resistance, safety and style on board are the key words allowing you to live your passion to the full, whatever the season or weather conditions. NV has chosen Sunbrella fabrics for its canvases because of the quality of the fabrics, but also because of the company’s ecological commitment.

Unfailing Resistance

Our sprayhoods, biminis, bi-sportline, weather cloths, and many other products in the NV range use quality Sunbrella fabrics, technically recognized as the best performing on the market in terms of resistance to the natural marine elements. They guarantee the best in outdoor boat protection, in terms of design and durability.

Eco Responsible Design

Sunbrella shares with us the same values and the desire to act in favour of the future of the planet. With nearly one third of the total weight in recycled yarn, Sunbrella fabrics confer great strength on our products while at the same time respecting the environment.
