David Allouch, Sales Consultant
David Allouch made his career as an entrepreneur in finance and media, before buying a catamaran in 2013 and heading off to explore the oceans with his family. His passion for the sea and ocean racing has always been present, including his military service which was completed on an oceanographic research vessel as watch captain. Over the years he has competed in many in-shore and off-shore races around France, solo as well as with crews.
This as well as his experience with the preparation of his own boat give him an all-round competence in sailing and boat preparation. His past as CEO brings a deep understanding of markets and financing and makes him an excellent adviser in the financial aspects of boat sales.

He then went on to complete 2 mini transats before participating in his own Vendée Globe in 2004, placing 10th.
