After an international career in Marketing, Christel settled down in 2003 in the South of France. It was just the beginning of a great adventure in the world of yachting: firstly with the worldwide distribution of US sport boats, later with the sales and services for the Benelux clients of the Ferretti Group. Running her own company has always been on Christel’s mind, since her MBA studies in the area of Seattle, and it became a reality in 2012. Since then, she has been dedicating her hard work exclusively to support yacht owners, providing a tailored yacht management along with a professional charter organization. Her encounter with her business partner Yann Gaucher happened at the right time. Their skills are complimentary and they are both driven by upper customer satisfaction.
Yann has been in the yachting industry since birth, following his father’s steps in the Port Vauban harbour, towing his first boat at the age of 14. He developed at a very young age a hard working mentality, a service come first attitude, together with a strong technical knowledge. He is well acquainted with all the local partners, being able to provide fast and reliable solutions. On top of this, Yann is a very good yacht captain and can jump behind the wheel whenever needed. Together with Christel, they are now able to provide a wide range of services.
