Welcome on ALMARINE Web site.

Educated in a family of shipping professionals, Arnaud de Lestapis has dedicated his whole career to the sector.

After a first part of career at Bureau Veritas, where he could build-up a first experience under several successive angles (technical, commercial, operational, consulting), he became Technical Director of three shipping companies, very different by their activity, their size and their organisation.

He then decided to value this diversified experience by becoming independent marine consultant within the company ALMARINE which he created in 2008.

The services proposed by ALMARINE are organised according to three axes :

  • Consulting services for the shipowners, and investors in shipping, based on a seventeen years experience with Bureau Veritas, ten years experience of ships technical management and eight years as consultant.

  • Representation in France of shipyards, faithful in particular to a partnership of more than fifteen years with one of them, and more recently of equipment makers.

  • An activity of legal expert based on the experience accumulated and the independence of mind forged during a whole career.
