What is your current role and how long in superyacht industry? 

I have been in the yacht industry for 22 years now, and happy to say 10 years as Captain onboard Queen of Sheba

What is your favourite destination and why?

My favourite destination is not technically one place – but the act of exploring a completely new destination. However, if I had to choose somewhere, I have to say that Town of Visby on the island of Gotland in Sweden is amazing and always a pleasure to visit. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is an extremely well kept Medieval walled town. Whether you want history, art, culture, nightlife or restaurants, Visby has it all!

What are your favourite toys to play with onboard?  

I have to say with guests, the waterskis and wakeboard are always a hit but I tend to prefer the more relaxing activity of a stand up paddleboard.

If you could only choose one thing that makes a superyacht charter so special, what would it be and why?

Remote overnight anchorages in an archipelago or fjords under the midnight sun.

Sounds like a dream! Thanks again to Tim and West Nautical for the interview!
