". It was awarded at the Occitanie Innov trade fair organized by the Region. 220 start-ups were candidates and 7 finalists were in the final selection.
Vincent Dufour is very enthusiastic: “this distinction brings us a prize of 30,000 euros which will allow us now to finance a new production mold,… from this summer, we want to make people fly! " Neocean invented the Overboat, a boat of the future.
Intended for a large audience, the Overboat allows everyone to discover the pleasure of flying in silence, with the sound of the wind and without any rejection. Compact, very manoeuvrable and fun, it is also a machine intended for professionals, thanks to its low energy consumption and its exceptional nautical qualities for its size.
