Not exactly what one would expect to see on an island on the west coast of France, this little boat has the distinct look of a Cobble from NE England

Be interested to know if it was an imported boat or if the characteristic tumble home to the rear topsides and the cod's head widest beam forward are local features.

Given that Cobbles evolved for beach launching through surf out into the the rough waters of the North Sea, the type is probably very suitable for the waters around Noirmoutier.
