MV Armand-Imbeau II

In service at the Tadoussac - Baie-Sainte-Catherine ferry, the MV Armand-Imbeau II was named in memory of a famous designer and builder of ships in the region. Born in Baie-Sainte-Catherine in 1893, Armand Imbeau studied with his father, himself a schooner builder. In 1930, he founded the Imbeau Dry Dock in Tadoussac, a company specializing in the construction of ships for the transport of pulpwood. Also a municipal councilor from 1928 to 1939, he devoted his life to fostering the economic prosperity of his region and employed up to 75 people at the turn of the 1940s.
