Maritime Law

The Maritime experience that our Maritime Lawyer has is not limited to textbook cases but, drawn practically from real boating experience, working as a Shipwright and running his own Marine Business for 30 years.

A lifetime of boating Marcel Vaarzon-Morel started his boating career while still in nappies. His much older siblings would take him out on a old VJ Dinghy and it is from this humble beginning that he worked his way through many Dinghy classes. His sailing experience eventually entered the world of Yacht Racing and Cruising. This avid sailor combined with his 30 years of Marine Industry experience and success as an award winning Legal Practice makes Marcel Vaarzon-Morel a marine specialist.
