No more last minute gifts, patterned socks, floating keyrings and sailor's knot boards! To keep Christmas fresh, TEMO is offering a selection of custom-made gifts for young and old boat lovers alike. These gifts are made in France and have been carefully selected by our team to delight those who love the sea and beautiful things.
Stay warm this winter!
Among the essentials in any sailor's wardrobe, there is of course the sweater. This year we opt for a Saint James pure French virgin wool sweater. Since 2020, the Norman manufacturer has been a member of the Tricolor collective, which aims to promote and rebuild the French wool industry. From sheep shearing to knitting, through the various stages of washing, carding, combing and spinning: a beautiful initiative that warms the heart.
A green gift
Easy to install on most boats, this wind turbine is compatible with the main brands of batteries. We chose the Grain Blanc model from Philéole. This young company, a member of the Solar Impulse Foundation, has developed an innovative vertical wind turbine specially adapted to sailboats. Biosourced, light, compact and silent, it can be fixed at the top of the mast and produces enough power to supply the lights, navigation instruments and lighting on board. And during the winter, it charges the batteries and allows you to leave a dehumidifier running.
The only obstacle to our Made in France approach is that Phileol is a Belgian company and they manufacture in Europe.
A decorative gift
To check the tide times at a glance
At a glance, it indicates how much time is left before high or low tide: it is the tide clock. As useful as they are aesthetic, the models proposed by Ocean Clock are entirely made in France, in Hossegor.
Bring the sea home with you
Philip Plisson's instantly recognizable photos are imbued with the atmosphere of Brittany. Powerful and vivid, they convey perfectly the beauty of the sea and his surroundings.
In Pêcheur d’images you will find not only the best of his travels in Brittany, but also from the four corners of the world.
A smarter gift
By repeatedly reading the Bloc Côtier before going to sleep, we now know the opening hours of all the Atlantic ports by heart. Interesting, of course, but what if we took advantage of the moments of relaxation on board to really get away from it all and dream of new horizons? For regatta lovers, eternal DIY enthusiasts or history buffs, choose your style and head for your local bookshop. Both gifted and humble, Jean Le Cam fascinated us all during the last Vendée Globe. In this candid account that goes straight to the heart, you will discover what makes this exceptional sailor so special.

The book for history lovers
Joseph Vernet, Les Vues des Ports de France (Views Of French Ports), published by the Musée National de la Marine.
