BARNES Yachts, the experience of excellence

After art and wine, the BARNES house launches a new department dedicated to yachting. A close partnership developed with Althaus Luxury Yachting, a recognized player in the luxury boating industry for over thirty years. Meeting with the founder of BARNES Yachts, Eric Althaus.

What are the missions of this new department?

BARNES Yachts is organized around several axes: the sale and the purchase of yachts, the seasonal hiring with more than 1 400 yachts with crews proposed around the world, the management of the yachts (customs, place to the port & #8230;), a Concierge service of exception and finally a component dedicated to the renovations and new constructions of yachts. With Thibault de Saint Vincent, president of the house BARNESwe share the same passion for excellence. The idea of combining our know-how to create a panel of expanded services around the yacht seemed natural to us.

What is the strength of Barnes Yachts?

This offers an extraordinary guarantee: wherever you are in the world, an interlocutor can respond instantly to your expectations, whether it is to select a cruise, a crewed boat or to accompany a transaction.

Where does your love for these giants of the sea come from?

As a child, I dreamed of building yachts and exercising my father's trade. At 21, I pushed the door of his office to Monaco. I learned the trade by his side and together we created Fraser Yachts, one of the greatest leaders in the yachting industry and above all the fruit of a passion that has been handed down from father to son.

What are you passionate about yachting?

The notion of experience that we offer to our customers and that of "no limit". My job gives me the opportunity to realize the dream of a man or a woman, to transmit an emotion and that it is sublimated.

How is the yachting market evolving?

The rental market is rising sharply, with requests to destinations never visited and extreme experiences. For sale and purchase, the market is very active. As well as that of construction, with the emergence of greener alternatives for water treatment, propulsion modes and air conditioning systems of yachts. Finally, the notion of customization is more than ever at the heart of the expectations of our customers who wish to live totally confidential experiences.
