At a young age in Brittany, Jean-Louis Legros discovered his true calling would be the sea. Spending summers on his father's Cotre and later competing in regattas his passion grew. At 18 he became one of the youngest sailing boat transporters in Europe. His solo expeditions took him to England, Spain and as far as South Africa transporting boats. After these tests of courage, JL accomplished his next dream, moving to the coasts of the French Riviera where he became the manager for the Antibes Shipyard. Always seeking the next challenge, his next adventure was as skipper then Captain on several impressive private yachts in the Mediterranean.

In 2000, Jean-Louis launched JL Yachting in Monaco, dedicated to boat owners who will reap the benefits from the scope of his expertise in boat management, refitting and sourcing. These operations cover Europe and the U.S. with locations on the Coté d'Azur and South Florida. His complete renovation of world-renowned artist Jean-Michel Folon's 1930's wooden yacht "Over the Rainbow" proved to be an unmatched masterpiece of craftsmanship, technical innovation and style. The two-year undertaking was supervised and managed by Jean-Louis with the masterful craftsmen in Savona, Italy at Mondo Marine.  For over 16 years, he has been offering his knowlege, specialized service and dedication to clients in the U.S. and abroad and would be delighted to to speak with you about your next project.


"Over the Rainbow" is one of our favorite yacht restorations. We brought the splendor back to this unique 1930's Classic Wooden Yacht ."

She was a wreck, ‘but love is blind and I could not see her many faults - I was going to save her.’ A special thanks to Jean-Louis and his team of craftsmen. Today she is a shining jewel of the sea.
