Like so many young French children who grew up near the sea, Delphine Lafitte began sailing at a very young age on small dinghies. Her affinity for the water and wind was so strong that she became a sailing instructor in her early teens. This laid the foundation for her future life at sea.
She became a mate on a large sailboat in her late teens and crossed the Atlantic twice. Those passages “under the stars” were enough to convince her that she must pursue a career in yachting. She went on to obtain the very prestigious French Yacht Captains license and has, for the past ten years, served as a yacht captain – operating charters, delivering yachts all over the globe, and racing in the Mediterranean, Caribbean, Atlantic and South Pacific. She has experience on just about every type of yacht – large yachts, racing yachts, charter yachts, racing boats, etc. She has served on yachts ranging in size from 28 to 145 feet.
An accomplished linguist, Delphine speaks fluent French, English, and Spanish. She operates 5 Oceans Marine Group’s brokerage office in Port Pin Rolland in the South of France. Delphine not only lists boats for sale in Europe for 5 Oceans, but works closely with Alexis de Boucaud, our Florida Office manager, to serve the needs of European buyers looking to purchase a boatin the United States or the Caribbean.
Delphine is a warm, intelligent woman who loves to help others make their sailing dreams come true. She speaks not only with a great depth of sailing experience, but with a true passion for the sea.
