Founded in 1979 by the Bich family, of BIC pen fame, BIC Sport grew from the family’s passion for watersports and expertise in sustainable manufacturing. By the late 1980s BIC Sport was a world leader in windsurf manufacture, and over the following 20+ years the company utilized their technological manufacturing skills on other passion projects.
BIC BOATS; Tough, light and safe. A success story Made in France. Used as tenders for boats and for fishing, the Sportyak 213 and Sportyak 245 are more stable, more durable and lighter than the classical dinghies thanks to their particular hull and the technology used to make them. More than 100 000 BIC boats have so far been manufactured and they have become a standard feature in the yachting world. The Sportyak 213 and 245 are stable, strong, light and 100% recyclable at the end of their life-cycle. The double hull gives added safety to passengers. Even if a very violent impact made a hole on the outside hull, the inner hull would provide sufficient flotation to get back to shore. The Sportyak 213 and the Sportyak 245 are made of polyethylene which makes them virtually indestructible. You don’t have to worry about leaving them in dinghy racks or on the beach. UV rays, salt and every day impacts have no effect on them. When no longer in use, these boats are entirely recyclable.
