The solution to connect your boat

Our Story

Moved by his passion for the sea, Ivain Bignonet has been dreaming of shaking the sailing world. At the end of his formation as an engineer, he is ambitious about replacing the chart table with a multifunction touch-sensitive device. In 2012, after years of research, the first KARA table is crafted. This first innovation will lead to the founding of KARA Technology in 2016. Today, the company from Angers offers its own solution for connected boats, works on smart boats and plans the future of autonomous boats.
