Christine Buttigieg

Growing up in Brittany, on the west coast of France, Christine spent most of her spare time at the local sailing school and then sailing with friends on bigger boats like the Dufour, Beneteau and Jeanneau. She got involved in the marine industry in 1986 working as first mate/cook on a 70′ aluminum Ketch bound for a world cruise after extensive sea-trials all around the North Sea (Holland, Norway, Scotland, Ireland, England). Since then, Christine has been intimately involved in many aspects of the marine industry; working ashore for a boat maintenance/refit company in Florida and working the boat show circuit for Perini Navi. After this it was back to sailing again, first with a deluxe charter operation in the Grenadines on a Dynamic 80 and Maxi 80, then as owner-operator of a 100′ 3-masted schooner entertaining day charter in Saint Maarten.

Christine bought a Privilege 48 and after a complete refit in Trinidad, she operated her as a crewed yacht, in the Caribbean. At that time, she was hired by a charter company to run the charter office, operating eight Privilege catamarans. Christine then moved back to Florida in the late 1990s, to sell these yachts, she has been a yacht broker ever since, specializing in catamarans sail and power, representing hundreds of buyers and sellers from all over the world. Speaking English and French she is able to help buyers and sellers from both sides of the Atlantic.
