Master 3000. Commercial and Yacht unlimited
With more than 16 years experience as a professional Captain, Engineer and Project Manager on yachts up to 71m and sailling yachts.
I have excellent manoeuvring skills with propellers and jet drives.
I am currently Captain of M/Y Ability for Burgess since May 2013.
Having been born in Tahiti, on a family owned charter sailing yacht, I began acquiring maritime knowledge and skills at an early age and have since gained more than 100 000 nautical miles cruising worldwide.
I have extensive experience of chartering in all popular destinations, as well as many lesser-known beautiful locations, and I have a strong focus on providing a safe, secure and enjoyable environment for our guests at all times.
My project management experience ranges from overseeing construction of the world’s largest carbon fibre catamaran, to a wide range of varying yard periods for regular maintenance work aboard many different vessels.
I have strong administration, budgeting and ISM/ISPS knowledge and skills, with a proven track record as an effective manager of people.
I enjoy building productive and efficient teams who pride themselves on performing their duties to the highest possible standards.
Completed the refit of a 42 mts Baglietto build in 2004 ( Ability), it was a great experience as project manager and captain/owner representative.
I am based in Greece for the moment for the operation of Ability as a foreign charter yacht with a Greek charter license.
The next project will be focussed on discovering new expedition routes for yachts in respect with nature .
