Yohan was born in the famous French sailing town of Les Sables d’Olonne, the home of “Vendee Globe Challenge”. As a child he was fortunate enough to visit some of the yachts during construction in a local shipyard in which his father worked. These visits ingrained in Yohan a passion for yachts and at an early age he started gaining knowledge of boat building.
After earning his BEng degree in Yacht and Powercraft Design at the Southampton University, he worked in small boat design and refit, involving boats of various materials; GRP, Aluminium, Steel, Fibrocement and more. He also worked on a sailing drone project using 3D printing processes and carbon fibre material.
He specialises in design/engineering and 3D printing, and really enjoys working at A2B Marine as the back bone technical support on our projects.
