In the last 10 years my worldwide nautical experiences working for charter companies as well as for private owners, from deckhand to self employed captain taught me how important is to be very organised and to keep anticipating any situation in order to look after the Guests onboard and keep the Yacht and the Crew safe and secure at all times.
I am also convinced about the necessity to be dynamic, flexible and always enthusiast on board to always maintain a good atmosphere and a motivated crew working as a team.
My eye for details, my ability to solve technical problems and my maintenance experience acquired in my previous positions on deck, in charter and during Yacht deliveries is the key to keep a Yacht in perfect conditions at all times and ready to weigh anchor at anytime.
I am ready now to evolve towards the super yacht industry working for private owners for either cruising, doing charter and boat deliveries keeping on learning and having more responsibilities. So I am willing to join a luxurious vessel with a nice active and hardworking crew where I could apply my skills and expand them.
