The website www.maritima-sailing.uk was launched in 2014. The idea came from a simple wish: be the first to answer at the same time to very precisely requests of our clients (dates, boat's type, destination, options, advice on navigation) and to propose during the year promotional offers like "Last minutes" with discounts going up to 30% per week and per boat ! After a few seasons, we have obtained excellent results. Our objective is now to create and maintain our new website in order for it to be as simple for our clients and to daily update all our offers.
After being a renter in Trinité-sur-Mer in Brittany for more than 15 years, he relied on his loyal clients and launched his company in 2004 in boat rental in France and abroad, with different websites in France and a presence at the Boat Show which takes place in Paris. Guillaume is now one of the main actors in the French yachting market, with a wallet of 1 500 clients and more than 15 000 prospects.
Federal sailing skipper/instructor, he navigates on all the oceans of the world, from the French Polynesia to Martinique and even to the Black Sea. With Maritima, he dreams that every boats can find a marine and vice versa.
Member of a large and sea loving family with holidays habits in southern Brittany, we have always enjoyed long and soothing sailing family breaks in the summer (Adriatic, French Atlantic Coast, Mediterranean, …). Guillaume and I met almost 10 years ago when he was advising my father on best sea routes, sailing highlights, and generally finding us our dreams’ boat as a boat broker. When Guillaume & his team told me about their idea to bring a new start to Magellan Sailing website and set the Maritima brand, I naturally jumped aboard the ship! I am mostly providing financial planning & corporate finance advice, but I have also helped with strategic & operational matters!

Those discounts are available only in Brittany, the French Riviera, Italy, Croatia, Greece and Turkey.

Ø Student crews
For several years, we organise cruise for big French business schools. Fleets can go from 5 to 20 boats in France or abroad with our partners. A lot of student associations ask us only the "renting part", we do not organise the transport and animations.
Ø Our references in terms of student associations.
We offer to your student project our experience. Indeed, we have organized cruise for the EM Lyon and EM Grenoble, in Croatia and in Italy. We make sure you have the best prices thanks to the volume of our boats (10 schools should ask us this year to help them to organise their crew).
Ø The quality and professionalism of our renters
Our renters work with us during the whole year to make sure our clients have the best cruise ever. At each return of our boats, we recover a survey about the satisfaction of our clients and we are very attentive about it in order to decide if we continue to work with this partner or not. This allows us to keep the best renters.
Our clients are also responsible because sailing is dangerous. Skippers and their team teach the best practices to the rest of the crew which receive also a briefing of our renters on the dock before leaving with the boat.Guillaume and its team navigate frequently in Barcelona and in Brittany, and have navigated on most of the seas proposed our website, so don't hesitate to ask any questions by e-mail or by phone, we will help you to organise your next navy getaway!
