Christophe Albin

Superyacht Owner

Christophe Albin founded an Electronics Engineering & Manufacturing Services company in Penang, Malaysia in 1983, and currently serves as its Executive Chairman and sole shareholder. Christophe spent the following 30 years growing and expanding his business, both organically and through mergers and acquisitions. His group is active in many industries including instrumentation, industrial and residential controls, automotive, medical, communication, high end audio-video and household appliances, power tools, HVAC and has customers in more than 12 countries spread over three continents.

He started chartering superyachts in the early 2000s in the Mediterranean and Caribbean. These were between 25 and 42 metres and except for one were all sailing yachts.

With a desire to undertake a round the world trip, Christophe and his wife became increasingly interested in the superyacht industry, meeting naval architects, interior designers and shipyards all over the world. After viewing many yachts, Christophe and his wife made the decision to design and build a yacht to their exact specifications for their unique trip. S/Y Escapade, a 37.5m Fitzroy, was delivered in 2014 and went on to be a finalist in the Voyager’s Award at the 2017 World Superyacht Awards.
