Monnoyeur partnership

"I am extremely proud to announce Monnoyeur's partnership with Benjamin Ferré," said Philippe Monnoyeur, CEO of Monnoyeur.

It began with a meeting between Philippe Monnoyeur, CEO of the group and 31-year-old sailor Benjamin Ferré, foal of the legendary Jean Le Cam.
The pair found common values: sharing, ambition and humanity. For more than a century, the Monnoyeur’s teams have handed down their expertise to younger generations, helping them respond to customers’ ever-evolving challenges.
This is why Monnoyeur decided to support Ferré in a four-year sponsorship programme. A major objective is to support him in the 2024 Vendée Globe, beginning with the Vendée Arctique in June, the Route du Rhum in November, and the subsequent qualifying races. He will sail with the group’s new identity proudly displayed on the hull and sails, accompanied by the DUO for a JOB association, which connects young people from diverse backgrounds and refugees actively seeking employment with mentors.
