I am Captain Jean-Yves Candlot, holding a British Maritime Coastguard Agency (MCA) Master of Yachts license, authorized to operate both private and commercially operated sailing yachts and motor yachts up to 3000 GT.

With 38 years of experience in navigation and major refit work, I am thoroughly dedicated to my duty aboard yachts. Since 1980, as a Master, I have had the honor of making 22 Atlantic crossings, allowing me to acquire an extensive knowledge of the waters of the Caribbean Sea and the Mediterranean Sea.

My experience encompasses a variety of destinations, including France, Spain, Italy, Croatia, Greece, Turkey, the United States, Lebanon, and Panama. Whether you need to prepare your boat for a voyage or require assistance with refit work in a shipyard, I am at your disposal to provide a precise quotation tailored to your needs.

I am fully committed to every aspect of my duty as a Captain, always aiming to exceed expectations and ensure the highest quality service.
