History of the group

History of the group

A solid company with over 10 years of experience

We created Global Nautic in 2011 with three guiding ideas:

  • To offer boaters high technical quality in conjunction with the main equipment suppliers and manufacturers.
  • To offer the quality of service and communication that is generally found in Northern Europe.
  • To offer a range of skills so that boaters have a single point of contact.

These ideas were successfully implemented and the team grew rapidly.

. An electrician soon joined the rigger and the hull and deck specialist. The team has since grown steadily, making it possible to specialise increasingly in specific skills.

At the same time, Global Nautic has been developing close relationships with the main equipment manufacturers in the yachting world.

In 2014 Global Nautic acquired Bowsprit and its specialist carpentry and cabinet making workshop.

In 2016, WBS Yacht Service joined the group with its expertise in marine upholstery, boiler making and machining.

Finally, Promosails joined the team in 2019 with its sail repair and manufacturing workshop.

Passionate about the sea, expertise and trust

The company is managed by its founder, Régis Wattenbergh, a native of Belgium. A sales engineer, Régis worked in the banking, industry and retail sectors before joining the yachting world in 2002. His experience of yachting in Northern Europe and his command of languages have enabled him to become a leading player in the field of boat maintenance.
