Located in the heart of La Ciotat, France, our office is the perfect starting point for those looking to explore the Mediterranean and beyond on a catamaran.

We pride ourselves on providing exceptional customer service and strive to make the buying or selling process as smooth and stress-free as possible.

Bernard discovered his passion for catamarans at the age of 16, sailing in Brittany and spent several years honing his skills at sailing schools. At 18, he purchased his own Hobie Cat 16 and raced along the French and Italian coastlines. From 1986 to 1990, he served as a permanent crew member on several racing catamarans, including JET SERVICE and ORANGE. He also raced on Formula 40’ and set records aboard CHARLEMAGNE. In 1992, he had the opportunity to join the largest cruising catamaran project at the time, working on HIGHEST HONOUR 1 & 2, which were built in the South of France. He served as a technical reference for seven months and completed four Atlantic crossings on board, as well as a refit back in France. His technical expertise was highly valued throughout this period. With his professional French captain’s license in hand, he has since sailed on large monohull and multihull boats in the Mediterranean, the Caribbean, the East Coast of the United States, and French Polynesia.

We invite you to visit our office and explore the extensive inventory of new and pre-owned catamarans in the area.
