Who we are

Starting from a rethinking of new uses of yachting, our catamaran electric-hybrid is a game changer for boat industries.

Between tradition and innovation. PINBALL BOAT is a start-up created in 2016 and located in France. It combines experience of Pascal, creator and former CEO of Goupil EV, electric vehicle European leader with skills of Stéphane,10 years of successful boat design with Ocqueteau.

Where does the name "Pinball" come from?

The pinball machine story started in the 1930s in Chicago. It has been a great success until beginning of 1990 to become part of pop culture
Mid-70’s, at Pinball machine height, I was 10 years old and ideal holidays was fishing on a sea boat and playing Pinball.
40 years later, “Pinball Boat” appeared to me as an obvious name for our shipyard company.
Pinball is fun, easy to access, friendly, vintage, full of innovations ... like our “Happy Day Boat”. So if you come across pinball machines in a boat show, come closer, it's us!
