Maison TIROT


A house of tradition

Founded in 1946 by Francis Tirot, a passionate wood craftsman, Maison Tirot has been rooted in Romagné, Brittany, ever since. For more than 75 years, it has perpetuated its unique craftsmanship, designing and building wooden boats and sailing yachts for young and old alike. It was during the first paid holidays that Francis Tirot had the idea of creating a wooden toy for children: a miniature sailing boat.


Breizh know-how: four generations of enthusiasts

For four generations, the Tirot family has been perpetuating this unique expertise, designing and building wooden sailing boats that delight young and old alike. In 2021, Augustin took over the business, guided by the invaluable advice and experience of Nicolas Tirot. He continues the tradition with fervour, while adding his own personal touch. Each piece is made by hand in the Romagné workshops, with passion and attention to detail. Skilled craftsmen master the age-old techniques of carpentry and painting, guaranteeing the quality and durability of the toys.

Timeless toys

Real toys for children, the boats from Maison Tirot meet the strictest French and European safety standards. They comply with European safety standard EN 71 1.2.3, attesting to their compliance with maximum safety requirements. They are designed to last and to accompany children on their imaginary adventures for many years to come. What's more, their exceptional quality means they can be enjoyed not just by children, but by grown-ups too, as decorative items or collectors' items.

Beech wood: a sustainable choice

Maison Tirot favours short circuits for the manufacture of its boats, carefully choosing beech wood from the surrounding forests of Brittany. These boats, made from a noble, durable wood, are designed to withstand all the elements and be handed down from generation to generation. They are the perfect embodiment of the values of craftsmanship and transmission that are at the heart of the Maison Tirot identity.


In 2012, Maison Tirot was awarded the ‘Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant’ (Living Heritage Company) label, a distinction that highlights French companies with excellent craftsmanship and industrial know-how. This recognition underlines Maison Tirot's commitment to preserving a unique heritage. By bearing the EPV label, Maison Tirot is committed to preserving its unique expertise and passing it on to future generations. In this way, it is playing an active role in promoting French excellence and ensuring the continued existence of the craft skills that make up France's rich heritage.
