I began my career in the Super Yacht industry 20 years ago and was initially involved in the exciting sector of yacht building & refitting. I held various positions as my knowledge, experience & responsibilities increased. After years of working and living on my own boat in the South of France, I decided to make yachting my career and earned my captain’s license. This gave me the opportunity to experience sailing on larger yachts, and I delivered many newly built yachts of various designs.
Soon after acquiring my C200gt diploma, I joined the stunning 28 meter sailing catamaran CILIAM for a season in Asia, where we sailed throughout Thaïland, Malaysia & Singapore.
After the wonderful experience sailing I Asia, I took a job running a yacht in Mexico for a year before returning turning to Europe. Back in France where I am from and have family, I took command of the amazing sailboat SAVARONA. I was delighted to use my yacht building & refitting expertise to assist her new owner in his vision to redesign the profile of this beautiful sailing yacht. We completed a long and extensive refit of SAVARONA we are keen to go sailing to the Caribbean & Mediterranean and welcome charter guests on board to enjoy the wonderful sailing and the hospitality of the crew on this beautiful yacht.
I always put security on board on top of my priorities. I am fortunate to have a positive attitude, and discretion & responsibility are the qualities I choose to live by.
I’ll make sure all guests will enjoy a great experience aboard S/Y SAVARONA.
