Pinaud Yachts, Baddeck NS

(formerly Baddeck Boats, now Cape Breton Boats)

Most recent update: December 5, 2020.


Members of the Pinaud family built yachts in Charlottetown PE, Westmount NS and Boston MA before settling in 1928 in Baddeck NS, under the leadership of Walter Pinaud, who had been the long-time manager of Alexander Graham Bell's experimental boatyard there.  If anyone can add to the table below, which is seriously incomplete, please send your info to me at timcolton@aol.com
