Skipper/1st Mate/Engineer .

I am a skipper from Germany. My professional backgrounds include safety management/sail repairs/hull repair/welding/splicing/electrics/piping/diesel and outboard engines. I am a qualified marine engineer as well as a chef by trade, too. I seek excellency as well as good economics when it comes down to passage preparations. I am organised, clean and tidy. And give everything to maintain the standard of your yacht. I do deliveries with my own crew and also support owners or other skippers as a 1st mate along their journeys. I adapt very easy to my surroundings and keep a clear head in challenging situations as well as I enjoy a good laugh :) My focus is on comfort, safety more than racing towards the next destination. I like to work customer orientated to get the most value for guests and owners out of their time on the boat.

Sailing experiences: Baltic Sea/North Sea/Mediterranean Sea(all over the place N,E,S,W)/Canaries/Caribbean/Whitsundays/Azores/English channel and Solent. And Atlantic crossings from Canarias to Caribbean and Azores to Germany.

Hobbies: Freediving, Kitesurfing

Thanks for reading all of this selfish text full of "Me", "Myself" and "I" :)
Looking forward to hear from you.
