Together they have sailed around Greece, through the Dalmatian islands of Croatia, along the picturesque Amalfi coastline of Italy and the timeless French Riveria within the Mediterranean, and in the Caribbean from the Virgin Islands, to the Leewards Islands including St Martin and St Barts, and onwards to the Windwards Islands including the stunning Grenadines. They have so far logged in excess of 30,000 Nm and over 100 charters. Most of this time has been enjoyed on charter yachts providing luxury vacations. Welcoming guests aboard with a friendly, warm attitude and an eye for detail they consistently provide holidays of a lifetime for their delighted visitors
Having sailed from an early age, Mike’s passion for boating in general has gained him a wealth of knowledge on sailing & motor yachts up to 80’ long. He likes to pass on his enthusiasm to everyone aboard, encouraging and teaching others more about sailing. Mike has been lucky to have sailed in many areas of Europe and the Caribbean, including logging over 20,000nm in the last 4 years alone on crewed yacht charters. A great sense of humour combined with a professional approach, an open and relaxed manner, not to mention his skills behind the bar, ensures Mike gets guests to enjoy every moment aboard.
