Christophe is an experienced captain who has worked in the yachting industry since 2001 as captain both on private and charter yachts from 44 to 105 feet. Since 2001, he has sailed all across the Mediterranean Sea, from Spain to Greece. His extensive knowledge about the French Riviera, Corsica and Sardinia is top notch. Christophe spent 16 years working between those three last areas, which is a great advantage for those who wish to charter these well-known destinations, to get advices on the on-land restaurants, shops and bars or maybe to discover secluded beaches and creeks along the coastline. Guests on board are also guaranteed to be in good hands as Christophe also acquired many certifications in fire fighting, medical training and in rescue.
As hobbies, Christophe likes to do sports, among those, his favourites are swimming, snowboarding and pedal tennis.

Javier decided to venture into the Yacht Industry as a chef in 2010 after years of working in restaurants. He notably worked in different five stars hotels and starred restaurants. Javier is particularly oriented towards pastries which was his domain during three years. His favourite cuisine is Mediterranean, from Spanish to Italian, and even fusion cuisine mixing both flavours as his signature dish: Mediterranean seafood risotto with saffron in fusion. For him the yacht industry offers a dynamic environment where creativity, innovation, and attention to detail are valued. He considered that his goal is much more than just preparing delicious meals, it is about caring for and nurturing the guests, both physically and emotionally. Javier wants them to be stunned and surprised by the meals, he puts his heart’ s and soul’s in. When Javier is on his time off, he loves reading cook and marine life books, fishing, scuba diving and snorkelling.
