About us

We are the premier Smart Yachters, the ambassadors of Smart Yachting. Our aim is to offer this new way of sailing to everyone who loves to travel by sea but hates flashy yachts and huge cruise-liners. We have created it for families and groups of friends who dream of sailing on board a private yacht, a staff to attend to their every need and a sunset on the horizon.
We designed this perfect balance between sailing, yachting and luxury cruising, between freedom, privacy, authenticity and safety, between luxury and tradition, to be our trade mark and our signature.
Our sailing yachts are selected with the utmost care for their elegant lines, their comfort and their authenticity.

The Smart Yachting Company is supported by its shareholders who are inspired by the same entrepreneurial values ​​and marked by the same passion for the sea. With a fleet of up to 15 ships planned in 3 to 5 years, flying the flag of our ambition to be the premier private sail cruising company.
