Who are we ?

Ruban Vert, founded in 1995, specializes in electric powered, license-free boat rentals in the Nantes area. In 2018, adding to the 3 initial boat hire bases in Nantes, Sucé-sur-Erdre and Vertou, the company opened a new base in Nort-sur-Erdre. The company has a total of 4 boat hire bases that you can use to explore or rediscover the Rivers Erdre and Sèvre Nantaise as you cruise along.

Ruban Vert is a company with roots in the local area. All our suppliers and partners also operate locally, contributing to the “Made In France” production initiative (boats, rigging gear, French-made batteries free of rare metals, etc.).

Ruban Vert’s core values also focus on energy: we have teamed up with ENERCOOP, a supplier of fully renewable energy.
