unyer members Fidal and Luther advised Click&Boat on a cross-border merger

unyer member law firms Fidal and Luther have advised France’s leading provider of boat hire services on the takeover of Hamburg-based Scansail Yachts International GmbH.

The French Click&Boat (Clickandboat S.A.S.) is pushing ahead with consolidation in the charter market. As part of a cross-border merger, the company has integrated Scansail Yachts International GmbH, headquartered in Hamburg, into the group. The merger was carried out in accordance with the new provisions of the German Transformation Act and the French Commercial Code following the transposition of the EU Directive (EU) 2019/2121 into national law.

unyer member Fidal took the lead in the overall transaction. Isabelle Lanoë (Corporate) and Matthieu Chapin (Tax), acted as central advisors to Click&Boat and worked closely with Dr Florian Schulz and Dr Amos Münch, corporate/M&A lawyer at Luther’s Hamburg office.

The client benefited from the experienced and well-coordinated Fidal-Luther team, which mastered the EU regulatory challenges in particular. With the integration of Scansail, Click&Boat is continuing its course of consolidation in order to establish itself as a leading charter service provider beyond France.
