Winter 2016


Welcome into the World of Yachting M

any people in yachting are under the impression that bigger is better. While we may actually agree with that in a very few cases, we have always thought that when it comes to yachting companies we tend to disagree. We pride ourselves in being a relatively small company that is known worldwide, in no small part due to the longevity and global influence of our CEO, Thierry Voisin, who has been involved in the upper echelons of the industr y through his family and enterprise for many generations, but also through our intrinsic values and sense of purpose.

Thierry VOISIN


Mathilde Gabriel : Monsieur Voisin, You are a renowned personality in the yachting industry. How did it begin? What is the genesis of your « yachting aventure »?  Thierry Voisin : The genesis of my yachting aventure is my family. I started my career in yachting first by having a small yacht which was built by the shipyard of my father. Then it was natural that I went into ship-repair, then one day to a ship brokerage. This is just a normal transition from the beginning to where i am now. MG : Where did the idea of creating « The WOY » come from? Why did you this company? TV : The idea of The WOY came after dealing with a lot of projects in repair and shipyards and distribution of yachting hardware, I just realized that what I knew the best, my passion, was the yachts because I had been continually working on them or repairing them. Then it was very natural to say, « Hey why don’t you became a broker?  ». So I became a broker, which led to creating The WOY which was originally The World of Yachting. It is a nice adventure and there is no stock! That’s a very important thing. Indeed during the years when I was distributing hardware, I had to deal with stock, stock and stock. And stock nearly killed me!

Une Citation « Oh god ! My boat is so small, and the sea is so big! »

A Restaurant : A small restaurant in an island, like Corsica

A show A yacht ! Because yachting is a show by itself!

A Shipyard Royal Huisman MG : What are you thoughts regarding the future of the yachting in Europe? What do you think about the future of the yachting industry in Europe? TV : Yachting has drastically changed. It was never considered as an industry when I started, something like forty five years ago. It was just a gentleman’s business. Now, it is sightly different : We produce more and more boats and we produce bigger and bigger boats. It is a totally different atmosphere. I must say that somewhere, maybe because I’m old, that the fun has gone a bit. There is still some challenge, but everybody became much more serious. In the past you were allowed to have some fun from time to time :) MG: In terms of regulations, things also have evolved a lot? TV: Well, there used to be no regulations! Things have slightly changed now: You have regulations for tax, customs, crew, boats, etc… You cannot live now on a yacht of a certain size without somebody advising you because the owner, and even the captain, are totally unable to know what are the actual regulations, how to comply with them and how to avoid to be at fault. MG : Do you think those prospects are the same for the rest of the world? TV : I think that people love the Med and the Caribbean. You can have some adventurous souls that will decide to go to Asia for example, or decide to go to the Arctic or the Antarctic, but still the heart of the yachting is and will remain the Med
