The Vanguard Yachts’s story started in Golfe Juan on the famous Côte d’azur beginning with the first company by Joel and Louis that launched in 2009, Vandutch Marine International. Rapidly, as an exclusive reseller of the Vandutch, the brand became one of the best luxury brands on the French Riviera in which elegance, performance and pure opulence were the main features offering a fresh take on luxury.

Awarded by the World Yacht Trophies for 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 substantial  expansion of its business, inspiring a lot of other international yacht brands with the strong desire to achieve the same success for their own companies. Thus, Joel and Louis eager for new challenges chose to broaden their horizons and created Vanguard Yachts in order to welcome new brands on the French market. Today, Vanguard Yachts is currently the exclusive yachting retailer for four luxury brands such as VandutchOkeanTesoro and Aurea. All of which offer luxury standards with unique and beautiful designs, outstanding quality, high-tech models and the finest quality amenities.

Located at Port Camille Rayon in Golfe Juan, our office is near the most renowned cities for yachting on the French Riviera such as Cannes, Antibes, Nice, Monaco and Saint Tropez. You will be able to visit every corner of this paradise that only we, as local sailors, know the secrets.

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