Professional Yachting Since 1972
Before all, we are qualified sailors, captains, having sailed almost all seas and oceans on sailing or motor yacht of types.
Since 1972, years lived afloat on blue waters or exotic areas with zero technical assistance, teaches us our proficiency and ability to replace any defective parts, gears or spares, whatsoever the weather conditions were in those days without GPS plotter or others fancy navigational aids.
Dominique has covered some 200,000 + nautical miles on all types of sailboats including some twenty North Atlantic passages and then some long roads in the Pacific Ocean and Northern seas.
At the peak of his career, he was called to follow-up the construction of the 38 meters Motor yacht MAISHA, delivered the yacht in France & sold her on the MONACO YACHT SHOW and alternatively took others projects and Master positions (once a captain, always a captain…)
Certified by the British MCA as a Yacht Master 3000 GT, and in France with commercial vessels 500 GT, Dominique became officially surveyor by joining the “International Institute of Marine Surveying” IIMS UK as a permanent member.

Family matters counting much, he went into brokerage activities with the most famous establishment such as Swan Nautor, Camper & Nicholsons in France and Turkey (franchised owner), Benetti-Azimut Asia, George I. Nicholson Yachts US in New-York. Further on went back to France, Turkey and Dubai to manage large yacht refits projects and back again in Turkey in 2009 mainly serving his long-time clients in unlimited yacht consulting services.
