JC has been sailing since a young age and became already a captain on sailboats when he was 18 years old.

Seychelles 18/12 - 02/01/2022
We had 2 splendid weeks cruising on Douce France! For the ninth time, in fact.

The Captain was excellent, in all respects, and we could not have had a more friendly crew!
The Captain obviously know this archipelago and Harry was a gorgeous chef.
Diving Master Marcel was a dream to dive with, for us all, and Greg, Damien, Anna and Timi gave it all,
so that we were always feeling well.

We look forward to Christmas and New Year.
Tuamotus - 22/12/201 - 03/01/2018
As repeat charter guests we are a big fan of DOUCE FRANCE. We experienced her at her best and were impressed by the good crew and the diving in this beautiful location. We saw a lot of sharks and even a hammerhead shark of 4m30 in Fakarava. Well done crew and dive master for giving us this wonderful experience! we will be back next year in Tonga!

The Chef and the food Mr Shailen !
Everyone at sea knows how difficult it is to serv fresh and organic at sea. To store vegetable, fruits berries and serve fresh warm bread and croissant every morning . Not easy.
But most important, he served us absolute everything we ask fore and in a gourmet/Michelin style Im never see at sea before. Impressive and amazing.

The deckhand and dive instruction. Charlotte
OMG !!!
Perfectionist, experience, safe and great. Serving with a big smile. She is the best for the boat and the guest at the same time and are doing the whole cruise to the best of the best.

The engineer Erwann serving the boat elegant and silent . Nothing more to say, everyone how have a yacht know one thing :) all the thing breaks down and it is always a need to fix things on board. On Douce France all the things work all the time ! Finish
