The project of « La Pylataise » was born from the work and friendship of two families : the Martin’s, owners of Dubourdieu’s Shipyard, and the Doumenge’s, worldwide event planners. 

Formerly named « Africa Queen », the pinasse was peacefully sleeping in a warehouse in Larros’s marina, in the seaside city of Gujan-Mestras, waiting for her destiny. After a lot of hard work on this Arcachon’s lady, we are pleased to receive you on board!

With boat rental and catering on board, we invite you to discover the Bassin d’Arcachon as we love it, all the while enjoying the ship’s decks and cabins, crafted with care for the comfort of its guests. 

Our catering service can adjust to your requests, and all our meals are made with natural and locally sourced products. 

As you board on La Pylataise, you offer yourself an exceptional moment with unconditional lovers of the region. Welcome on deck!


La Pylataise is ready to welcome you on board for all your events such as birthdays, seminars, trips with friends, customers gift, or as a couple.
