BATHÔ is a socially responsible company that transforms disused pleasure boats into fixed accommodation, which can be used as meeting rooms, unusual tourist accommodation, playgrounds or even gîtes for private individuals. After more than a year in operation, the company has already rehabilitated some 15 boats. This concept, the only one of its kind in France, is a response to the need to deal with a large number of end-of-life boats, whose main materials cannot be recycled. The trades involved in renovating these boats enable young workers to receive vocational training, and people who have been excluded from the workforce to find work. Social and environmental commitment is thus at the heart of BATHÔ's mission.
