Jason started his life on the water at the age of 5 racing small sailing dinghies. After racing for a number of years he taught these skills at the Olympic sailing school in Wales. At the school, he passed his Master of Yachts unlimited and with such credentials was able to join the Americas Cup Yacht, Stars & Stripes. With a passion for travel working on super yachts seemed a natural progression. Since then he has worked on multiple yachts and has 17 years of experience in the industry.

As a captain, he oversees every aspect of the yacht’s operations ensuring safety at all times and a comfortable cruising experience. He is adept at crew relations, continually maintaining a strong team environment to create the most memorable and service-oriented experience for the guests.

Chief Engineer: JamesChief Engineer: James

James was born in Durban on the East coast of South Africa.

After finishing High School he attended the University of Cape Town for four years and graduated with a bachelor of commerce with majors in mathematics, statistics and economics. Soon after being introduced to the yachting industry he took to the technical side of the engineering department and enjoyed learning a hands-on approach to technical solutions. He worked on two Feadships for two years each, namely M/Y BG Charade 50m and M/Y Minderella 60m. During which he obtained an MEOL from the MCA in the United Kingdom.

He enjoys surfing, just about all other exercises, chess and reading.

Chief Stewardess: Mary JoubertChief Stewardess: Mary Joubert

Born in Savannah, Georgia and raised under moss draped live oaks of one of the southeast USA’s low country gems- an island called Isle of Hope, Mary was influenced from an early age by the beauty of the ocean and its intra-coastal waterways.

Convinced that the assurance of working outdoors was the chief criteria for furthering her education, Mary obtained a science degree in Biology and after university was employed by the International Riding Academy of Hilton Head, South Carolina. Oddly enough it was here that she was introduced to yachting, when one of her clients asked if she might be interested in a “change of scenery?” And a change it was, spending winter seasons in Asia or the Caribbean and summers in the Mediterranean, each port of call brought a heightened sense of excitement and adventure.

Mary now divides her time and work between the Equestrian and Yachting industries. She just recently finished a period of traveling sub- Saharan Africa working in a number of the continent’s most popular horseback safaris. Her passion for conservation on land and sea is one that she enjoys sharing with guests and hopes to meet your every whim and desire where experiencing your pristine surroundings are concerned. Mary’s sea- centered hobbies include diving, paddle boarding, fishing and she soon hopes to graduate from wake- boarding to Kite boarding.
