Nicolas Valin was “programmed” to work in the yachting industry, thanks to a father who pioneered the yacht charter business in the Caribbean in the late 1960s, a childhood spent in the French West Indies and a lifelong passion for sailing.
After obtaining a Master’s in Marketing, Nicolas spent 15 years working for three nautical world leaders: in the bareboat charter business with The Moorings, in yacht brokerage with Fraser, and in yacht building with Azimut Yachts. In 2005, he launched the Azimut Charter Club in Monaco and Varazze, laying the foundations of what would become Neo Yachting in 2009. With 25 years of experience in yachting, Nicolas brings a technical and comprehensive approach to yacht sales and purchases. He has closed a wide range of yacht deals, spanning the spectrum from a 62-metre megayacht to a 60 foot sports yacht.
