Jean-Michel Morisson

    Considered The Authority on Boat Repair, Jean-Michel has been working with Beneteaus for 33 years.  Born in Normandy, Jean-Michel spent his childhood sailing in the Channel with his father.  Right out of the Navy, he got a job at the local Beneteau factory in Croix-de-Vie in Vendée, France.  After 5 years Beneteau recruited him to the Marion, SC factory which opened in 1986.  In 2000 Jean-Michel came to work at St. Barts and has been an invaluable resource ever since.

    Jean-Michel is the most valuable asset in the boating industry. Although the value of a new fleet of boats is considerable, it doesn’t compare to the experience, wisdom, expertise and helpful attitude that Jean-Michel brings to the table. He has talked me through 3 issues on my boat since I took ownership and he has encouraged me and given me the confidence to solve the problem the right way every time. He has saved me hours of research and every time he picks up the phone, I am extremely grateful! He is the definition of a wealth of knowledge. Purchasing my boat through St. Barts was one of the best decisions I could have made, the service from the rest of the company is always friendly and helpful, and together with Jean-Michel, it’s unbeatable.
    Thank you,

    I just wanted to send you a quick note to say what a huge help Jean Michel has been to me. We have a Beneteau Sense 50 and every time we have an issue with parts he goes over the top to help. Today he saved us. He is extremely helpful. I have never met him but he must be a great guy!

    I had to replace my starter twice in two weeks.  Despite doing so,  I could not get my engine to start.  Needless to say I phoned Jean-Michel and after diligently troubleshooting for about 2 hours we were able to get the engine started.   It was discovered that it was a bad relay switch. Seemingly, Jean-Michel was the only person that could figure this out and did so immediately.  He is a walking encyclopedia of Beneteau.  Hats off to him.  He was extremely patient.   He provided much needed text book guidance In a systematic step by step approach.  Despite my multiple phone calls., he is always available, always kind and always helpful.  He is a diamond in the ruff and his help was invaluable. We would have been in deep trouble without Jean-Michel.  I just wanted to let you know and also wanted to personally thank you. Anytime I know of someone who wants to purchase a boat, I will make sure to send them your way.
