About US

The ITA Yachts Canada team of brokers, Michelle Mant, Eric Gaudette and Guy Bolduc have been in the yachting world for 20 years. While under their prior employer, sold 25 Azimut yachts to Canadians from 43 to 82 feet in length. They have accompanied their clients through the various purchasing steps of a yacht starting with being present annually at the Miami and Fort Lauderdale boat shows and Genoa show in Italy and of course Cannes. From 2013 to 2017, they were representatives of the Ferretti Group in Canada (Riva, Pershing, Ferretti).

With their combined strengths, Guy and Michelle & Eric have a solid expertise in tax, registration, duty, overseas shipping, European delivery including captain selection for a Mediterranean or sunny Florida escapade. This team is proud of their acquired knowledge concerning the yachting world.

They acknowledge that it is a privilege to accompany a client throughout the process of purchasing a prestigious yacht. They pride themselves with the fact that they remain available always after the sales transaction for all questions and troubleshooting for a client that has taken delivery anywhere in the world. Through the years of offering the dream of a overseas delivery, they have acquired a network of local experts helping to rapidly resolve any issues.
