FD Marine was born out of the desire to share our experience accumulated over many years in all areas related to boating.
We previously had operated a boat charter business in France, built our own boat, helped friends build theirs and work on a famous mega yacht in the Med.
We first began our activities in the Caribbean in 1988 in Barbados, Martinique and Antigua.
We had sailed the Atlantic from Europe and first started to help boats that also had made the journey across the big pond with maintenance and repairs mainly on electrical equipment and fiberglass. We also delivered boats for their owners back to Europe and the US
After a brief stop in St Maarten, we settled in St Barth’s where we began our air charter business while still managing to sail as skipper on some local charter boats.
A few years later, when we returned to Canada we completed some training in electronic repairs and in ICT (information communication technologies). It was now time to get serious and when the opportunity arose, we came back to St Martin where we opened our own IT company on the French side in January 2005.
