Personal statement

“it is my passion to work on motoryachts”

Certified as a RYA Yachtmaster with a 200GT – tidal license, I’m able to operate and navigate power driven vessels up to 24 meters (80ft). I build up over 5000 nautical miles on my logbook, done with several deliveries and charters in the Mediterranean, Baltic Sea and Dutch waters. More than 5 years practical experience with modern yachting.

I ensure the smooth running of operations by:

  • Managing budget
  • Hiring crew and traveling logistics
  • Checking the vessel, navigation-, engines- and deck-equipment (sea trails)
  • Preparing the passage plans (navigation, weather, ports/mooring, refueling)
  • Watchkeeping, logbook update and informing the owner
  • Control the engines and fix any problems that arise
  • Deliver on-time

To improve my skills within the diversity of yachts I would like to broaden my experiences. I’m interested in positions on a MY in the range from 15 till 30 meters. This will help building up my nautical miles and references. I’m available for a fixed or freelance (seasonal) position on a MY. Beside my maritime skills I have more than 25 years of Media experience with IT-systems and Publishing solutions.

Extra services I can offer for additional value on board:

  • Solving network and hardware problems
  • Advising, setup and manage IT/AV systems
  • Secure systems and sharing access to data
  • Advanced Microsoft Office support
  • Clear documentation of configured solutions
  • Creative artwork and publishing of information
  • Web design, adding and modify content
  • Photography and illustrations


Keep learning to become my RYA Yachtmaster 500gt offshore license
