How I got here

Nautical alphabet h

After graduating from university, I delved into the world of luxury private jets, immersing myself in the exhilarating experience they offer. However, it was my adventurous spirit that led me to explore life aboard a superyacht. This transformative journey ignited a deep passion for these magnificent vessels and the charter industry. Working as crew on various yachts allowed me to gain invaluable insights into their workings and understand the needs of discerning guests. 

Drawing on my expertise from both the private jet and superyacht realms, allows me to create tailor-made experiences. I understand the importance of finding the perfect destination that suits each client’s unique preferences – whether you seek cultural exploration, vibrant nightlife, or peaceful seclusion. Interacting with people from diverse cultures and backgrounds, and understanding my clients on a deeper level, is what I love most about the job.

My passions

My favourite cruising destination

Croatia holds a special place in my heart as one of the most captivating cruising destinations. Its crystal-clear waters, picturesque coves, and charming fishing villages create an unforgettable experience. Every visit unveils new delights, from exploring secluded islands to immersing oneself in local markets. A personal favourite spot is Korta Katarina Winery.

What an amazing experience! We are 5 couples who vacation together every year. We have already decided to do this again!


Everything worked out perfectly and any small worry was successfully executed immediately by the crew. James was always on standby and even bookings around the charter were spotlessly organised. Overall, a perfect charter and our yacht is hard to top in many ways. Thanks to all team members. We will be back in 2023!
