ABOUT THE NAOS TEAM
Everybody at Naos Yachts is passionate about sailing.
Our combined years of racing, cruising and daysailing is unprecedented in the industry.
Owner, Charles-Etienne Devanneaux is a renowned racer on two continents. As a child, he began collecting new Beneteau brochures as the models were released. He sold his first Beneteau sailboat at the age of 18 and was hooked. In 2009, Charles founded Naos Yachts in Marina del Rey and acquired the Beneteau sailboat territory that includes Southern California from the Los Angeles/Orange County line in the south to Morro Bay in the north. Lagoon territory extends from the Mexican border to Morro Bay and both Lagoon and Beneteau include Hawaii. In 2015, Naos added an office in Channel Islands Harbor to serve clients in the northern part of its territory.
Charly has built a team of professionals that know their boats. Every team member has years of experience racing and cruising, most professionally as some level. This level of professionalism and dedication to our clients has led Naos to become the leading sailboat dealer on the West Coast Los Angeles Yacht Sales.
In addition to new and used yacht sales, the Naos team takes great pride in offering sailing lessons, as an ASA certified school. Our service department was chosen as the best service department in the world for Lagoon in 2014. We can assist with any boat problems and can keep your yacht looking perfect.
