Shipping, Yachting and Merchant Marine

This site contains various published and unpublished documents about recreational boating and the merchant marine.

The author, P.-A. Reymond, was very young when he decided on a navigation-related career. He holds a Second Mate FG certificate and he qualified as a marine architect. These qualifications led him to a career as a consultant in recreational boating. As a naval architect, he realised numerous construction projects.
This man of the sea also devoted more than 30 years to teaching nautical science and to the training of boat builders.
