Didier and Sophie Wattrelot have over 50 years of experience on the water between them - providing an atmosphere of comfort and safety while you journey with them.


Didier Wattrelot - Owner and Captain of Sauvage. Born in 1956 in France, Didier has 30 years of sailing experience with the first 10 years in commercial fishing in France as a First mate. The following years were dedicated to sailing on his own private yachts around the world including a single handed non stop crossing from Polynesia to Falklands through Cape Horn aboard his first 38 ft cutter. After working in the Caribbean for famous charter companies aboard maxi luxury yachts as a professional captain (French sailing Master), he decided to build his own private charter cruising sailing yacht.

Didier and crew built SAUVAGE in a shipyard in the south of Brazil and launched in the water in 1995. Since that year, Sauvage has been taking passengers for adventure charter cruises around the world.
