Gilles Wagner CEO of Privilège Marine

Gilles Wagner

CEO of Privilège Marine since 2012

Gilles Wagner discovered the joy of boating in 2006, as the owner of a rigid inflatable pleasure boat and after organising regattas with friends in the Gulf of Morbihan or spending holidays sailing around Corsica. Now he is the proud CEO of a marvelous company with outstanding catamarans and an amazing team.

“I come from eastern France, and have worked far from coasts, in Austria and Germany, and far from the nautical industry, in the automotive industry and then the composites industry. But my passion for the sea goes a long way back and always makes me feel very excited. I think I have a special connection to the water element. In 2012 I have realized a personal dream.“

I joined Privilège and experienced
something I have never experienced
before. The intensive passion for a
product. Every new Privilège is a
masterpiece, build in cooperation
with its new owner.


Gilles is keen to continue enjoying sailing in Les Sables d‘Olonne, Île d’Yeu, and to accompany Privilège owners when they leave Port Olona. He also regularly has the pleasure of meeting dolphins, always with a lot of excitement.

Having a boat and being able
to sail far or close from the
coasts is a luxury, even on a
small or big boat. I feel free and
very connected with nature.
