Jérôme founded Antipode in 2007 after having spent 15 years working for a major French boat builder, having sold and delivered boats all over the world. As all the employees of Antipode, Jérôme is passionate about the sea, boats and anything that floats by some means … especially when it goes fast : windsurfing, dinghies, catamarans, offshore racing, Jérôme loves putting on his wet suit and navigate on his favorite spots : Golfe du Morbihan and the Quiberon Bay. He is an expert on technical points, especially on rigging and sails, and is very proud to say that he always recognizes a boat on the first look.

« We sell used boats that by definition are not perfect and we need to be irreproachable on the manner in which the transactions are carried out, respecting the interest of the buyer and the seller ».

Jean-Baptiste Lemaire

Vannes - Sales

+ 33 6 10 25 00 03 - jb@antipode-yachts.com

At the age of 4 he was learning to sail on the Seine, at 15 he was doing his first French Micro championship, at 25 he was sailing across the Atlantic on an Wauquiez and at 39 he ran the Mini Transat and finished 7th in the Series category. In 2018, Jean-Baptiste raced the Transquadra (double handed transatlantic race) on the ARCHAMBAULT A 35 VLI MAGELLIMO and finished on the podium in 3rd place.

Fifteen years of experience in selling yacht charters brought him to sail on many seas, from Polynesia to South Britt any, via the Caribbean or the Mediterranean. Cruising or racing, comfort and performance, the extent of Jean-Baptiste’s experience enables him to give relevant advice with regards to the client’s navigation program. He is as dedicated to selling a boat as he is to preparing his boat for the Mini Transat : there is no place left for luck. Smiling, relaxed, available and always in a good mood, Jean-Baptiste is your partner to buy your boat : « At Antipode, we are rigorous, precise and available. We have the sense of service and it is not because we have the cheque that the job is done ».

Clément Dorso

Vannes - Sales

26 years old and already a long list of records to his name! Clément learned to sail before he knew how to walk, an atavism acquired with his dad, crew of the Whitbread and off-shore races. At 20, he was already French junior Match Racing vice-champion; at 22 European vice-champion. Between the two, always wanting more, he enjoyed a J80 world championship sailing against F. Cammas and Th. Coville in M34. This series is very particular, on top of its high level it imposes a professional requirement on the preparation of the boats.

« I was sailing 200 days a year! Passionate about sailing and racing, I also enjoyed sales. I went to the Institut Nautique de Bretagne to work with sailing and boating. » Clément joined the team in January 2018 with three years’ experience of second hand boat sales. You don’t have to ask him twice to join in for a sail during a delivery handover. « I happily share my experience of manoeuvres and thorough boating knowledge with my clients. » At Antipode, we have understood since a long time that it’s essential to combine work and passion.

Julie Brodu

Vannes - Sales assistant

+33 2 97 68 49 44 - julie@antipode-yachts.com

Julie joined the Antipode Yacht team in spring 2018 after always having worked with boats. For nine years Julie was the purchasing manager for an important boat yard for sailing and power boats. She knows all about the equipment related to boats perfectly well. The past ten years she has worked for a marine electronics company that works on racing and cruising boats.

Julie speaks fluent English and stands out for her good organisation skills, rigor and constant good mood. « I’m delighted to have joined the team, I really like the spirit of this small company. The atmosphere is really dynamic and friendly. The rigor does not stop us from enjoying work, on the contrary, as we work well, and our clients’ satisfaction is our pride. » Julie leaves the mainland on a regular basis to sail away cruising or for a day out on the family’s renovated Caravelle… which is not for sale ;-)
