YERSIN a unique concept of Piriou


Official presentation in Monaco of the Motor-Vessel Yersin,

“a ship designed to travel, explore and educate”

At a ceremony in the Principality of Monaco, attended by HSH Prince Albert II, the M/V Yersin, an exceptional 77m exploration ship, that is both a private boat and multi-purpose vessel for sailing on all oceans and in all weathers, was blessed by His Grace René Giuliano, Vicar General of Monaco.

“The vessel is called Yersin in honour of Doctor Alexandre Yersin (1863-1943), who worked for the Messageries maritimes merchant shipping company. Humanity owes this man a great deal for his research, notably his discovery of the bacillus behind the bubonic plague on 20th June 1894.

I also chose one of his quotes

“You are not truly alive unless you keep moving” – to be the vessel’s motto,”

commented an emotional François Fiat on the realisation of his dream, and who chose for this symbolic date the first anniversary day of the Yacht Club de Monaco’s new building.

‘YERSIN’, a unique concept:
Multi-purpose transoceanic vessel designed for sailing in “all seas, all weathers”, the YERSIN combines the technical complexity of a scientific research ship with the high standards of comfort and elegance of an exceptional clean and environment friendly vessel.

What’s special about the YERSIN ?

– Sailing “all weathers, all seas”,
– A 15,000 nautical miles range,
– Environment friendly sailing,
– Custom comfort and style,
– Versatility as a core asset.

YERSIN is the first explorer vessel offering these five considerations with such a demanding level.

Half a century of experience and continuous growth have helped establish PIRIOU as a leader in the fields of shipbuilding and ship repair for medium sized vessels.
