Here in Saint-Nazaire, a ship’s departure leaves no one indifferent. The whole city is shaped by the rhythm of the shipyard.
France, Queen Mary 2, Harmony of the seas… Each of the legendary vessels built by Chantiers de l’Atlantique represents the excellence of the local know-how and is the pride of residents.
So yes, when the fog horn sounds, the entire city quivers!
