The Borg boatyard is a family business founded in 1963 by the father of its current manager, Denis Borg.

Specialising in the Marseille "barquette" small fishing boat, traditional and Latins rigs, the boatyard repairs ten boats each year. It also makes some new boats. The Borg boatyard masters all the skills of traditional framework, joinery and cabinet-making for the interior fitting out of boats.

 

Moreover, it produces also all the rigging (masts, shrouds, etc.), the cordage (splicing, knots, etc.) and designs the sails. The Borg company is the last to make Marseille "barquettes". It preserves part of the Marseille maritime heritage, the "pointus" fishing boats. The company also carries out reconstriction work on old vessels for museums (Marseille History Museum, Antibes History and Archaeology Museum, etc.).
