My late Grandfather told me, “You’ll only ever be good at something that is also your passion” sage advice which I am eternally glad I followed. Stepping barefoot onto my first Superyacht in my early 20’s I eagerly learnt everything I know about navigation, yacht design and construction and became a Superyacht captain at 28. Since then I have captained charter and private yachts all over the world and have logged over 250,000 nm at sea.
Having witnessed firsthand the growth of the yachting industry for over 20 years has given me a unique perspective on market trends and yacht design that allows me to offer my clients insights and helpful advice on the purchase or sale of their yachts. What I love about my job as a yacht broker is sharing my passion of yachting with my clients.
