Presentation of Acher-Duhamel & Gournay

The Acher family, from Fécamp, was involved in the "grand fishing" on the Grand Banks of Newfoundland. In 1898, Henri Acher purchased in Canada a wooden three-master he renamed Turenne. The ship was registered by Henri Acher and his son René until 1909 (Acher & Fils), then by René alone. The tenth campaign of the Turenne ended with the loss of the ship, sunk on 6 April 1919 on the Grand Banks. The 36-men crew was rescued by the three-master Anaïs and repatriated to France in May 1919.
The writer and adventurer Henry de Monfreid (1879-1974) seems to have attempted to purchase the Turenne in 1907; it is believed that the loss of the ship inspired him for his novel Le naufrageur (1950).

On 11 June 1920, the newspaper L'Ouest-Éclair reports the blessing in Fécamp of the André-Pierre trawler (52 m, 553 tons), owned by Acher-Duhamel & Gournay.
