Riviera Yacht Support is delighted to announce the addition of Sylvain Berthoumeyrou-Hansen to our team.
Sylvain will be based in our Antibes office from 1st March 2018 and joins us in a pivotal Client / Purchase Manager role, where he will be responsible for building and managing relationships with our clients.
Sylvain's first Atlantic crossing was at age 19, after which he worked on classic sailing yachts and motor yachts. He gained his MCA Master 3000gt Licence at the age of 30, continuing as Chief Officer or Captain on various sized vessels.
In 2011, after 22 years of cruising he decided to go shore based and was offered a job in a marine upholstery company. Over this time, he has learned the different aspects of the business from the commercial side to quotes and administration.
Sylvain enjoys hiking and mountaineering with his wife, climbing with his son, cycling and running.
We warmly welcome Sylvain to our team where his experience across all facets of yachting will benefit our clients.
