Imagine building so may new boats that you lose count. Now imagine owning so may boats that you have lost count as well. Jack Setton talks to Patrice Carpentier

Jacky Setton is an extraordinary man. After earning a lot of money distributing Pioneer electronic devices, working in real estate and also selling racing cars (of which he still has a formidable collection), he spent a lot of it on his true passion: boats.

But, above all, his great pleasure was to design many of them working with a dedicated naval architect to create the boat that exactly suited him. ‘Tailormade’ boats for which he sometimes has difficulty later finding a buyer! At 72 Setton tells us his amazing story as a private ship owner from his residence in Sardinia.
