The concept

Douglas founded Douglas Yacht Services in 2007 offering an A - Z service to international yachts.

From delivering a bale of hay to his first yacht to organizing a real vacation experience of the “Pirates of the Caribbean” from Antigua to the Grenadines.

The company’s policy is simple: to deliver excellence 24 hours / 7 days per week anywhere in Martinique or beyond.

To achieve excellence, each of the team multitasks while conserving leadership in certain services – see the details by service.

In 2008 he initiated and has since lead the task with local stakeholders to establish the bay of Le Marin as the base for the Southern Caribbean for International Yachting keying off the existing Marina of 750 berths.

Much political persuasion has been accomplished:
-  12M€ Euro / Regional funding was voted in 2012 to upgrade the Dry dock facility including a 440 ton / 45 m LOA with capacity for 3 yachts. Works expected to be completed in 2015.
-  1M€ / Regional funding was agreed in 2013 to do the first phase preparation for the design of a megayacht dock and associated facilities handling yachts up to 120m LOA.

MYA (Martinique Yachting Association): Together with others Douglas founded it in January 2013 and became its first President. He has the vision for the MYA to contribute to making a step-function improvement in the welcome to international yachting in Martinique over the next 5 years.

CYBA (Caribbean Yacht Brokers Association): Douglas is a member.
