The summary of my career at sea can be seen as a combination of extensive and rigorous cruising experience from Merchant Marine and top quality Guests service and care from the highest standards of Superyachts industry.

After my last role as Chief Officer and my previous position as Staff Captain o/b the world’s 3rd largest yacht (162m LOA & 12.488 GT), some relieving or delivery opportunities and my command on board a 64m Motor Yacht the year before, I am now looking forward to perform my next challenge as Captain on board a Mega Motor Yacht, travelling worldwide, on a stable job.

Coming from Merchant marine and after five years of worldwide navigation (including various Oceans and Suez Canal crossings), I got the opportunity fourteen years ago to shift to yachting.

Additionally to docking and undocking the above mentioned 162m MY without pilot, I also have manoeuvring practices on 65m Motor Yacht with AZIPOD Propulsion and driving skills o/b over 30.000 GT Containerships. One of my previous yachts has undergone a major 10-month refit in shipyard, where I had to deal with various aspects of yacht in yards.

I am dedicated meeting your most legitimate demands and providing the most professional services required for these functions. I am confident to be highly qualified and a motivated Captain, offering my competences to your venerable company.

These numerous gained experiences gave me the opportunities to develop my sense of command, responsibilities and organisation and to acquire very strong knowledge in every matter linked to safe navigation.

Being familiar with the ISM System, be sure that I have always answered to my Owners’ requirements with a quality job, especially in the fields of navigation, guests / passengers care, ship management and safety on board.

Up to now, my total sailing distance is +/- 490.000 NM.
