Starting 1936, Nautiraid develops recreational kayaks as well as a military range.
Since the Frankton operation during the Second World War, the use of kayaks by the commandos for stealth missions has shown its relevance.
The military version of the Grand Raid 540, known as the SB Commando Mark VI, offers amazing features: this kayak is sized to enter the torpedo tube of a submarine, it multiplies the radius of action of a combat swimmer by 5, and it’s used to perform Military intelligence.
Nautiraid provides the French special forces, marine commandos, and nautical units of the Army.
Nautiraid’s materials are used in many armies around the world. They also design and manufacture a range of waterproof commando bags in Hypalon, and diving outfits fighting for swimmers, divers and water rescuers under the Squale brand.
