The Vanguard Yachts' story started in the south of France in Golfe Juan with first the launch in 2009 of the first company managed by Joel and Louis known as VanDutch Marine International. Rapidly, as exclusive reseller of VanDutch, the brand became one of the best luxury brands in the French Riviera in which elegance, performance, and pure luxury were the main features.

Awarded by the World Yacht Trophies “Best Design up to 24 meters” in 2013 for the VanDutch 55 and with more than 200 boats delivered across the globe, the brand experienced a strong expansion of its business, inspiring a lot of other international yacht brands with the strong will to live the same success for their own business. Thus, Joel and Louis eager for challenges, had no other choice but deciding to expand their horizons by creating Vanguard Yachts and welcome new brands on the French market.

Today, Vanguard Yachts is currently the exclusive yachting reseller for four luxury brands such as VANDUTCH, OKEAN, TESORO, AUREA. All brands present unique and beautiful designs, high quality models, and luxury standards.

Located at the Port Camille Rayon in Golfe Juan, our office is near the most important cities for yachting on the French Riviera such as Cannes, Antibes, Nice, Monaco, Saint Tropez. You will be able to discover the French Med' in its authenticity, and to visit every corners of paradise that only we, as local sailors, know the secret.

With more than 20 years of experience in yachting, we have attended to the most prestigious events such as the Cannes Film Festival, the F1 Grand Prix in Monaco, or the Cannes Yachting Festival. Offering irreproachable and luxurious service is our niche, as well as making a difference in people's journey.

As a result, in a market constantly growing and changing, Vanguard Yachts became a true avant-garde and specialist in nautical events, a reference in the importation of exclusive brands from Europe and Brazil, always seeking the latest innovations and technologies.
