Vannes - Director

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 ».

Catharina Holmberg

Vannes - Customer service

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

She speaks three languages fluently, French, English and Swedish, her mother tongue that makes the communication with the Scandinavian countries much easier. "It's a real advantage in the exchanges with our clients from abroad". She knows all the moorings in South Brittany that she explores with her family on board of a "Vintage" Mousquetaire.

At Antipode, she appreciates the Anglo-Saxon mentality : "we are a reactive company, in which each cares for the customers. We are all dynamic people. Never a mail goes unanswered. It's a straight, organized company that does not play about" she says with a slight accent. Catharina is like a " Swiss knife" for Antipode : translation, marketing, sales administration, accounting, transfer of ownership, export documentation … she keeps track of all the files and nothing escapes her !

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 2017, Jean-Baptiste will run the IRC season on an A 35 and will participate in the 2017/2018 Transquadra in a double crew on the A 35 VLI MAGELLIMO.

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 ».
