Captain and engineer with global aspersions.

I have an “uncompromising attitude”! I do the best, I work with the best, for those who appreciate the best!

Most often I am hired as Captain and Engineering for private boat owners traveling the world.

My boat license is Yacht Master 200 (sail) I have worked as a yacht rigger in the US VIrgin Islands. I have 30 years of yachting, many long passages including Atlantic crossings, many watches, years of deck work, lots of haul outs. My most recent positions are Captain of an 25 meter (85’) high performance global sailing catamaran (Azizam), Chief Engineer on a 39 meter (139’) ketch (Cyrano de Bergerac) and a delivery as skipper of a 36 meter (118’) schooner named (Yanneke Too). Just completed a delivery of a Fleming 65 from Athens to Gibraltar and a Outremer 5x catamaran from Gibraltar to the Grand Canary

To date I have sailed in the waters of 30 countries encompassing the Caribbean, Mediterranean Central America and parts of Asia. My desire is to circumnavigate the globe. When I come onboard a yacht I come with everything that is needed to captain the vessel including navigational equipment, vessel documentation software suites and equipment. I have both single and twin engine maneuver and docking skills.

I bring to the table 45 years of engineering experience and have both MCA AEC 1 & 2 to back it up.
I am proficient in repair and maintenance of system including engines, generators, hydraulic, stabilizers, water makers, electrical, electronics, plumbing. For sailboats I have captive winch and high load experience. I owned a home automation business for 12 years and am tech savvy and for the past 6 years done all the engineering activities on 3 private power yachts.

I have a European Union and Canadian passports so I can work anywhere in Europe, the Mediterranean and have a B1/B2 for the USA.

If something breaks or if the conditions are unearthly, I'm the man you want onboard to get you through the tough times.

As well as being a skilled and valuable asset to the vessel, I'm a pleasant, easy to get along with, funny, mature, fit, adventure seeking, and a professional team player. I'm sure we'll all have a great time! Looking forward to meeting you.

Pete

Great Engineer, professional & calm

Peter Puky was hired on a sailing 84 foot Catamaran and worked for 3 months as a Captain. He was in charge of 1 deckhand and 1 chef full time. His technical skills were very impressive, he had no handover from the previous captain which was no issue for him, he started learning everything by himself on the job. Maintenance was done while the yacht was sailing and the yacht was in a much better status than it was before he started. He was extremely professional, calm and collective in all situations. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a professional Engineer/Captain.
