THE CAPTAIN

Francois Gagnon is passionate about sailing and motor boats. Raised on the shore of the St. Lawrence River near Montreal, Quebec, he has been boating since the age of 6, learning to handle boats in all kinds of weather. Francois has 40 years experience in sailing and motor boating and has developed a keen sense of what to expect on the water. A licensed captain, he displays a cool, calm and collected attitude which inspires confidence and excels in boat handling, navigation, maintenance and equipment repairs. He is a skillful planner and organizer of cruising expeditions.

After graduating from McGill University with a degree in Mechanical Engineering Francois founded a successful engineering firm specializing in industrial energy efficiency. Captain Gagnon is the father of two grown children with whom he has cruised extensively in the Bahamas aboard their sailboat PERLA and families are very welcome aboard BONAPARTE, indeed! He is also aa PADI Certified Diver, master swimmer and keen spearfisherman. Fresh lobster for dinner, anyone?!

THE MATE and CHEF

Annette St. Cyr was introduced to cruising when she met Francois 12 years ago. Shortly afterwards, she embarked on a year-long sailing trip along the US East Coast to the Bahamas during which time she developed excellent skills as mate, hostess and chef. Trained as an educator for children with special needs, she was tremendously successful in her field and appreciated by parents and children alike who followed her workshop sessions.

Annette enjoys catering to guest needs and is very attentive to details. She reads non-verbal communication very well which helps her and Francois – respond to your needs and desires before you even know about them!! Annette has a sixth sense for hospitality, always paying attention to your well-being. She enjoys cooking fabulous meals, especially desserts, which she whips up in no time, to everyones delight. By all means, bring your children. They will be delighted by all the ways Annette entertains them and makes them feel comfortable onboard BONAPARTE.

Francois and Annette are passionate about yachting. They want to share their passion with you by creating an atmosphere conducive to enchantment, peace, pleasure and contentment.

If you just want to lounge and relax, we will make sure you get what you want. The yacht is yours for the period of your stay and we want to make everything as perfect as we can.

Whatever destination you choose, your stay aboard M/V Bonaparte will be memorable. Francois is an experienced skipper who likes adventure and fun.
