Personal Statement

I have been the Managing Director of my own Boat Charter, Training and Brokerage business for the past 13 years in Mallorca, Spain. This position has afforded me great proficiencies in the intricacies of running a business, people management, multi-tasking, communication skills and logistics. My main areas of expertise lie in skippering motor yachts and training and instructing clients to attain a range of RYA licenses via my sea school.

I moved to Dubai due to my partner’s work commitments in January 2016 here I was employed by HGI Marine Services as Captain / Chief Engineer, the company folded which has meant I have now returned the UK.
