Le Filao is a family-run marine fabrics and yacht upholstery company based in Antibes with over 30 years’ experience, specialising in fabrics, interior and exterior covers for yachts and superyachts.
Founded in 1986, siblings Marie and Michel Gangemi initially started working with the then-somewhat-smaller superyacht community using a mobile workshop. 30-plus years on, Le Filao still has the mobile workshop in Antibes' Port Vauban - as well as two 300-square-metre workshops. Although still based in Antibes, Marie, Michel and their team cover every port from La Ciotat in France to Imperia in Italy. Quotations are free and there are English, Italian and French speakers.
