Our team

Globe Sailor

Located in Paris since 2008, GlobeSailor SAS is one of the major companies in the charter industry on the Internet. Despite the development of new information technology, it was still very difficult to quickly find a ship owner in any given navigation area and it was even harder to ensure the quality of these services. Our goal is to make boat booking easier for everyone and to guide all our boaters in their research. A wide selection of professional charter companies, as well as an easy-to-use and multilingual website have made GlobeSailor a trusted brand in the charter industry.
