Growing up in a naval family, and being a passionate sailor, Alex has spent plenty of time at sea. From sailing the Ionian and Aegean seas to exploring the Croatian and Amalfi coasts, not to mention regularly skippering around the Cornish coast which he calls home. Alex really has grown up on the water. This passion led him to study naval architecture and offshore engineering at Newcastle University where he then went on to complete a masters in Global maritime shipping management at the University of Greenwich. Before joining TJB, he spent time living in the French Alps, working in a luxury ski chalet.
Experience on the water paired with his enthusiasm and passion to exceed expectations makes Alex a key asset to the TJB team. His dynamic and forward-thinking attitude means Alex thrives alongside clients and colleagues, this outlook is at the forefront of the brokerage making Alex such a valuable addition to the team.
TJB is a boutique company, with an emphasis on providing a personalised and tailored service. This attitude enables excellent and tight knit relationships to be formed with clients.
Made up of a passionate, young and dynamic team, TJB Super Yachts use highly sophisticated intelligence systems which allow us to stay up to date with industry developments. This ensures our clients receive the most up to date, accurate information in turn allowing them to make secure and informed decisions when it comes to their yacht purchase or charter.
I would say a highlight of the job is being able to work alongside colleagues who share a passion for the open water, yachting lifestyle whilst building strong relationships with clients. This cutting edge, ever evolving industry is such an exciting place to be, and I feel fortunate to witness firsthand the sophisticated and luxury feats of naval architecture and marine engineering whilst simultaneously creating remarkable and unforgettable experiences for clients.
TJB has become one of the leading brokerage houses in the industry. I am proud to be part of this fantastic team, and help in developing the business allowing our yacht brokers to continue to provide such remarkable experiences, whilst helping to grow our clientele.
I believe the crew play a vital role in the charter, so it’s important to have a reliable crew aboard your private yacht. Secondly being in a dream destination that provides you with remarkable experiences, and lastly a stress free charter process. From your initial enquiry to disembarking your superyacht, it’s so important to have a broker you can trust to handle any potential hurdles and ensure you have the most enjoyable experience from start to finish.
I would have to say West Greece – the Ionian. The abundance of beautiful beaches, magnificent mountains, underpopulated islands and charming traditional villages paired with stunning cities, great night life, unique natural phenomena, good food, and a rich history mean it’s a cruising destination like no other.
Feadship, due to the beauty and striking designs coupled with the best build quality, engineering and technical superiority to anything else on the market.
The complexity of designing these superyachts is immense: you have to respect the naval architects, designers and engineers for their ability to build fully custom yachts, each with its own distinct personality and style, all to the same exceptional standard and build quality. The opposite of a ‘copy and paste’ design process, each new yacht really is a blank canvas.
If I was going to charter a yacht, a great selection of toys for easy access to the water would be important and most importantly a large open deck for hosting parties in the evenings!
Personally, my passion is sailing so if I were to ever purchase then this would be my main priority, sails would be a must!
I would recommend to charter the yacht first, so you can get a feel for what you like or perhaps dislike. Don’t rush the process, and don’t settle for second best. Our yacht brokers are here for you throughout the entire process to ensure you find your dream yacht.
I enjoy a challenge and recently cycled from John O’ Groats to Land’s End, my dream is to sail the Atlantic – something I would like to do before I am 40.
