In 1927 Auguste Kirié opens the eponymous shipyard in Les Sables d'Olonnes. As Jeanneau this shipyard is rooted in the power boating and competition. Claude Kirié the founder's son has participated in several editions of "6 heures de Paris". In the 60s Kirié began production of polyester boats; the shift is also present in the range with the arrival of "fishing-cruising boat" and "fifty".
In the early 80s Kirié launched a range of cruising-racing monohull : Feeling. The Feeling 13,90 distinguished itself by winning the Route du Rhum 1986 (class boat series). His little brother Feeling 10.90 was elected "Boat of the Year" the following year.
