Captain/Mate/Deck/Engineer/Dive Instructor available

With over 14+ years’ working experience, I´m looking for my next position in the industry.

I hold an RYA/MCA Yachtmaster offshore commercially endorsed, RYA GMDSS SRC, RYA ICC (International Certification for Operators of Pleasure Craft), STCW95-10 Basic Safety training, STCW10 Security Awareness, MCA AEC (Approved Engine Course) and a ENG1.

I have a Bachelor´s degree in Engineering and a Master Certificate in Business Management and Leadership.

I have worked on board different vessels from 10m+ diving motor boats to 50m+ Sailing Yachts. These were all excellent learning experiences in how to deliver and ensure an outstanding customer service, in which I take immense pride. In those years, I´ve issued some 350+ certifications and took diving some 10,000+ people.

I´m a CPR/AED First Aid Instructor; a Search & Recovery Instructor; a Night Diving, Deep Diving Instructor; a Nitrox and Advanced Nitrox Instructor and a Technical Gas Blender (including trimix) instructor. Furthermore, I can teach multi-level, cavern/cave, side-mount diving and digital underwater photography as well.

I´m skilled at management and logistics, with tools and power tools, maintenance disciplines, painting, varnishing, polishing and quite experienced with petrol and diesel engine repair and maintenance.
I have excellent tender driving skills, a strong background in water-sports.

I hold an EU passport (Italy) and a B1/B2 United States of America visa and an international driving license.

I am organized, enthusiastic, reliable, and respectful person with a positive and proactive mindset.

I am skillful at everything that you can expect from a well-trained multi-task Captain/engineer/dive instructor.

I know all about the rules and regulation of navigation, safety and other environmental and governmental rules.
