TEMO, an innovation born during a round-the-world sailing trip.

It was during a round-the-world sailing trip back in 2015 that Alexandre SEUX, the founder of TEMO, discovered a real problem concerning boat tenders.

There were until now two means of propulsion for transfers by tender: oars or engines. In both cases, the logistics and the operation of these means are very demanding for the use that is made of them. Engines are heavy to transport, cumbersome to store, difficult to maintain, while oars require a great deal of physical effort.

But how to address these constraints on dinghy use and prolong the pleasure of boating?

It was by observing the evolution of electro-portable equipment ashore (with functional innovations such as the Dyson or the electric scooter) that TEMO was born. By judiciously taking inspiration from urban mobility and transposing it to the world of boating.

TEMO, a brand name with a twinkle in its eye

Did you know?

TEMO comes from the Latin TEMO, temonis became timo, timonis in Late Latin.

The timon is the long handle of the tiller.

In French, the Timonerie is the helm station, or wheelhouse.

The timonier is the helmsman.

This root was therefore a perfect fit for our brand and our eponymous thruster. Always stay on course with TEMO and allow yourself moments of unconstrained sailing.
