Destination Soleil met a great chef of these luxury boats, Michel Thomann, whose name is well established in the world of yachting.
He started his career in 2003 he had business in Switzerland, he worked the winter so available in the summer to make a career in yachting.
In 2011, Michel, under the influence of his wife Kimmy, left Monaco and moved to Florida. His wife gave birth to his first son Ethan in Monaco. Michel built the FACE restaurant (France-American-Culunary-Experience) in Hollywood.
