Bertrand Vogèle

CEO & Partner

As an entrepreneur and a passionate yachtsman, my career and lifestyle have allowed me to take on many exciting and dynamic projects building a portfolio of knowledge in the luxury yachting sector. My first exciting venture led me to purchase one of the largest yacht shipyards, gaining invaluable technical knowledge of yacht construction. Following this direction, I pursued the brokerage segment where I was brought onto the management board of a prominent yachting company in Monaco, which specialized in the maintenance and refits of luxury yachts with seven locations from Monaco to la Ciotat. In 2007, I acquired a well-known yacht brokerage company becoming chairman and owner for over six years. In 2013, after deciding to sell, I founded a yacht brokerage company from scratch with a small team of specialists to offer more transparency to clients and to provide customised services in superyachts sales, charter, and management. My favorite yacht is Far blue Southern wind 92 and if I had to choose one location as my favorite, I would say Panarea in the Aeolian Islands.

Managing Director & Partner

My career with a luxury brand for almost 15 years led me to the yachting industry. My fascination for the sea only grew, and I became passionate about the amazing experiences the sea has to offer. In just eight years, I developed a yachting division from scratch for a large international company. I teamed up with Sebastiano Pitasi, with whom I worked closely for six years and created NEXT Yachting. Together, we bring a fresh outlook and modern perspective to the yacht brokerage sector. Working in the yachting industry, it was logical to leave Belgium, where I was born, and exchange it for Monaco. In my spare time, I enjoy cooking for friends, hosting fun dinner parties, hiking, spending time with my loving husband, and I am always in for a good book with a good glass of wine. Above all, I am a passionate traveller and have had the chance to explore many dream-worthy places. In Europe, I love the Amalfi coast with the stunning pastel-coloured fishing villages, small beaches, cliffside lemon groves, and delicious food and wine. Outside of Europe, Langkawi, Malaysia, is at the top of my list, offeringwhite sand beaches, rainforests, fantastic snorkelling and diving, good food, and friendly people. If I could choose one yacht to take with me on my travels, it would be LA DATCHA. The experience she can offer is breathtaking. She can take you to remote places and very close to nature.

Sebastiano Pitasi

Senior Sales Advisor & Partner

As a child, I was fascinated by yachts and ships, and my biggest dream was to work in the maritime industry; today, here I am. With a degree in naval architecture, I bring more than 10 years of experience in the yacht brokerage business, with a clear understanding of yacht ownership, yacht charter and yacht management. I have been working with Anissa for more than six years, and together we share the same vision and, most importantly, the same principles and ethics. Together with Anissa Mediouni, we co-founded NEXT Yachting with the aim of creating a yacht brokerage company that offers a fresh, modern, and creative approach. I aim to continually exceed expectations and deliver results no matter the challenge. This underpins the ethos at NEXT Yachting. In my free time, I enjoy travelling, sailing and expanding my culinary knowledge. Throughout my yachting journey, I have been able to visit many of the world’s most luxurious and iconic yachts. However, just like yachting, there needs to be an emotional tie to make one stand out. For me, that is SAFE HAVEN (Ex NONO) as she was the first superyacht I sold, and like your first love, you never forget her. Among my favourite destinations, Portofino is at the top of my list. It changed my life forever,and that’s priceless. My motto!? Never give up on your dreams; fight to make them happen.

Ingrid Lammens

Senior Charter Manager

Originally born in the North of France, I started my career at American Express, organising complex business trips for multinational organisations. My grandfather, a speedboat builder, was my inspiration and the one who introduced me to the marine world. Eventually, in 2008, I decided to pursue a career in yachting and move to the French Riviera to start a career in the yachting industry as a Charter Broker in the yachting hotspot of Saint-Tropez. My passion and dedication have helped me build a strong reputation and network within the yachting industry across the French Riviera. I have acquired abundant experience from all my previous roles, and I bring a wealth of knowledge of the world of luxury travel to NEXT Yachting in Monaco, the capital of yachting. My favourite destination is Saint Tropez because of its authentic and chic atmosphere. Whether going for a stroll in the old town or enjoying the vibrant port, the city is always thriving.

As a creative spirit, I enjoy implementing my creativity into my professional career, even if that means sliding down an inflatable slide dressed to the nines to deliver Champagne to guests on jet skis (yes, it’s a true story!). In my free time, I enjoy cooking, sailing and exploring the sea. If asked where my favourite destination would be, I would say the areas that I still need to discover, which is how to advise my clients. As far as yachts go, my preferred yachts are the ones that are intently used by the owners and the charter clients. in my eyes, the yacht needs to be alive and vibrant. So beautiful to see the action and enjoyment before stepping foot onboard. I bring more than 20 years of expertise in the high-end hospitality sector, including helping superyachts and some of the world’s finest resorts to achieve silver service standards. Yes, I can help your yacht too!

Mauro Venceslai

Yacht Advisor

My passion for sailing developed very early and led me to the exciting world of Regattas.
I participated in various international regattas and fell in love with the exhilarating events so much that I decided to take on a bigger challenge and became the owner of a professional team, Vita di Mare. With a background in international shipping, I am well versed in the financial aspects of buying and selling vessels which I share with my clients. In my spare time, when I am not sailing, I enjoy cooking and golfing. Above all, I love to explore, in particular, the Norwegian’s Islands where my dream vessel to do so would be the Garcia Exploration 52.

I have always been a very passionate sailor, holding an RYA Yachtmaster Ocean Licence, and completing five Atlantic crossings on catamarans. Initially, I studied law in Konstanz, Germany, but after a few years of practising, I decided to make a career change and pursue my love for yachting. I have now been working within the yacht brokerage business for some eight years and enjoy every moment of it. When not at sea, I enjoy adrenaline-packed activities, including biking, hiking, and climbing in the Alps. I am a big and family man and together we adore travelling. Our favourite spots are Seychelles and the BVIs- both perfect for cruising. In terms of my favourite yacht, the Spirit 111 is perfect for our needs. I don’t need a crew, her interior and exterior design is unique, a perfect symbiosis of classic yacht design and modern performance and she is one of the very few yachts that are truly sustainable, she is able to perform ocean passages without using any fossil fuels.

I have always been very passionate about boating, both sail and power. I began my career as a crew member on board a 36-metre schooner-rigged gaff top where I got to learn the ins and outs of yachting. After that, I moved to Cape Town, South Africa,  where I worked for nine years as a yacht advisor and crew volunteer with the National Sea Rescue. I’m always seeking to grow my knowledge of the yachting industry. In 2004, I became an EMCI Registered Yacht Advisor and I currently attend a superyacht management course at the Maritime Training Academy to be able to always be up to date with the industry standards. In my free time, I love to travel, my favourite destination is the Hebrides in Scotland. The smell of turf fire in the air, the early morning fog while sipping a coffee, endless views, fantastic legends and quaint pubs – the Classic Malt Cruise is still on my bucket list.  My favourite yacht was the first yacht I bought with my husband. She was a Trisbal 42, called Taniwha, built in aluminium with a lifting keel, cutter rig and steered with a tiller where we lived on for over six years before selling her.

Ever since I started sailing from a young age, being part of the yachting industry has always been a dream of mine. I find the yachting world fascinating because of its level of details, luxury and freedom these boats offer; it’s absolutely incredible. After studying a Business Career, I decided to obtain a captain certificate. Once I accomplished this goal I dedicated my days to racing and navigating prestigious sailing yachts in Europe and South America.

After several professional experiences in the industry I aimed to link my passion for business and yachting. Becoming a yacht broker and being based in Palma de Mallorca is fulfilling it all. Mallorca has a unique reputation in the yachting industry thanks to the wide offer of services addressed to yachts, comfortable marinas, luxury, and top brand products in an enclave of great beauty and heritage value, making it a perfect destination for both yacht crew and guests. My favorite yacht would be a Gunboat 68, fast and comfortable. We would be sailing around the beautiful islands of Corsica, Sardinia and the Balearics in the summer and spend the winter in the Caribbean’s.
