Nathalie knows yachting from personal experience as she created MerexYachts in 1987 after 5 years of working as a cook on charter yachts in the Mediterranean and in the French Caribbean.
With experience spanning 30 years, Nathalie’s expertise covers every aspect of life on a sailing yacht and she has perfect knowledge of the charter market and industry. Nathalie believes in providing ship-owners with a level of service that is nothing short of outstanding.

RYAN SPENCE

Head of the Charter Division

Ryan launched the Merex Yachts Charter division in 2019. On behalf of our clients he manages all the booking and planning requirements of the charters. With 10 years of experience as a yacht Captain, he has completed over 250 high-end weekly charters on various vessels, both sail and power, in diverse locations across the Caribbean and the Mediterranean, which enables him to advise our clients the best of the best.


MAROUSSIA GUST

Daughter of Nathalie Drogoul and married to Ryan Spence, Maroussia brings the energy of the new generation. She handles the French charter requests and writes the monthly blog articles, providing insights and tips about the charter industry. As she has grown up in the yachting industry and worked on a yacht as a Chef for a few years, the charter world is close to second nature to her.

OUR MAIN AND TRUSTED PARTNER

We have chosen to work with BLUE LATITUDE YACHTING, which functions as central agent of our crewed charter yacht fleet. The company is located in Enghiens les Bains and is run by Laurence Provost. Laurence was the marketing director for VPM YachtCharter for 15 years before she decided to launch her own company. Laurence’s assistant, Marie Motroni has been working alongside her for 10 years.
