Who we are

Brest seamen's club was founded in 1994 by a priest-worker named Job DAOUBEN and a small team of volunteers.

We are an official and non-profit organization named "Les amis des marins". Our aim is to welcome professional seafarers of all nationalities during their call in Brest by providing appropriate services in a friendly atmosphere. We have a managing team of 3 persons and a part-time employee.
