After an international career in Marketing, Christel decided to settle down in the South of France. It was just the beginning of a life time relationship with the world of yachting: firstly with the distribution of US manufactured sport boats around the world, later with the support of sales and service activities 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 region of Seattle. Beginning 2012, she has began dedicating her hard work exclusively to support yacht owners, providing a tailored yacht management along with professional charter organization. Her encounter with her business partner Yann Gaucher happened then, at the right time. Their skills are complimentary and they are both driven by upper customer satisfaction.
After a few discussions with Christel, it became an evidence to Yann that becoming business partners would be the start of a great adventure. He joined the company one year ago as a managing partner. Quite frankly, 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.
