Watch: Panama Canal with 100'ft wooden schooner
Hi my name is Kuba and here is a brief info about myself.
From 2015 to 2019 I have successfully run a private charter operation on the islands of The Great Abaco, Bahamas, with a 100' wooden schooner and its fleet. After hurricane Dorian hit and devastated the Abacos in September 2019 I spent another year taking care of this beautiful 100' schooner in Florida, US. When the vessel got sold to a new owner in 2021 I prepared and delivered the boat from Florida, US to Panama and Golfito, Costa Rica. In 2020 I moved to Czech Republic where I started building boats and houseboats while taking care of 11 vessels in a successful river charter operation, until present.
I usually maintained and fixed all the vessels I owned or I took care of by myself. I consider myself to be an independent and reliable captain, engineer and mechanic. I have prepared vessels for ocean crossings, hurricanes, haul outs and managed various boatyard refits.
I am currently looking for any type of boat job matching my skills anywhere in the world. (from January 2023). From boatyard, maintenance or delivery and charter projects. I am keen to work, learn and do a good quality job.
Right now I am based in central Europe until late October/November.
Holder of B1/B2 US visa and EU citizen.
STCW and ENG1
I am open to discussion and looking forward to hearing from you.
