Having stayed on boats ever since returning to Hong Kong in 2013, the Franco-British Boater went from week-end sailor to full-time yacht broker in the time it takes to tie a bowline. His specialties include houseboats, blue water sailing yachts, trawler-style motor yachts and finding moorings in Hong Kong’s busy typhoon shelters. The proud owner of a 63ft Custom Cheoy Lee ketch and an Island Gypsy 44, he divides his spare time between sailing, freediving and working on recipes for his South China Sea Cookbook. Contact:
