About me

His yachting career started as a deckhand, he climbed the ranks on a number of prestigious yachts and ended up as Captain onboard KATRION. In 2008, he moved ashore and spent nine years heading up the Yacht Management department of a large management house in Monaco; and two years as Fleet Operations Manager for one of the world’s largest private yachting fleets based in the UAE. Yves leads the YPI Yacht Management Fleet Operations, managing client relationships across the fleet.
