Since his birth on the island of New Caledonia, Philippe Pecot has had a dedicated passion for the sea and for yachts. This is evidenced by the fact that by the age of 10, Philippe had already built his first boat in order to try his first circumnavigation. While he did not accomplish his first circumnavigation on his home built monohull, the idea and his ambition to voyage and explore the world did not diminish.
Even during his studies and professional life in the IT business, he lead several legs of the French challenge for the America's Cup until 2000. While he was not ready to pack up his keyboard just yet, these sailing adventures provided clarity for Philippe on where he envisioned spending his life after his career in IT had come to end: The Sea.
In 2006, Philippe gave up his career in the IT field, and bought a Lagoon 420 Catamaran for his second attempt at a circumnavigation. Philippe then traveled the world, and conducted small charters in the Mediterranean Sea and saw some of the most gorgeous views the world has to offer from the Eolienne to the Balearic Islands and beyond. In 2010, Philippe then embarked on a family cruise for three years from Marseille to Montreal by way of Rio de Janeiro, where he then sold his catamaran to move to a new facet of life where he can assist others realize their dreams just as he had.
It was then that Philippe met TMC President, Phillip Berman, and Senior Broker, Alexis de Boucaud, and decided to join the TMC team to help buyers and sellers with his extensive knowledge of the sea and the catamaran market.
"Philippe is a tremendous addition to our already vastly experienced team," Phillip Berman said. "He has sailed the world and understands the pros and cons of all the catamarans on the market, and we're excited to have someone with his expertise working with TMC clients."
Whether your agenda includes shorter coastal cruises, or you plan on circumnavigating, Philippe will know exactly how to guide you in your journey: from the boat you choose, the flag, financing options and the route you choose to take, Philippe will have the knowledge and expertise to guide you.
These are stand up people, who make a stand up product. I would buy from them again in a heartbeat.
