My Drive

Born to cruise. Literally, yachting is in my DNA. Growing up on a shipyard, my life has always revolved around boats. Kindled at an early age with the passion for yachts, it inspired me to work in different sectors of the yachting industry. Pretty much worn every hat on the rack.

I’ve built and managed companies from the ground up, launched, participated in and finished incredible projects, like building the first Dutch hydrogen boat powered by an electric motor that gets its electricity from a fuel cell. I liked working together with shipyards to coordinate CE and ISO regulations during the build of yachts that taught me a lot about the ins and outs of a yacht. For the greater part I worked in yacht sales and –charter and this is where you can still find me. I adore it.

My time onboard and around yachts definitely feels like the best experience I could wish for and thrives me every day. Dedicated to go the extra mile to share my passion for experiencing exceptional comfort at sea. Just loving every minute spending on the water.

My Passion

At weekends you’ll often see me whale watching. No, I’m kidding. I just love life.
Having a good time together with people that matter is one of my greatest passions. Enjoying the Côte d’Azur while having a barbeque at the beach after spending a day on the water is enormously fun, so is golfing on a sunny day and enjoying nature while walking the dogs.

Life is full of little gifts to appreciate. That is real quality of life.
When time allows, I indulge my passion for driving. Little excuse is needed to take to one of the winding roads close by and unleash my inner Formula One driver.
And yes, I can drive in these heels.

My credo

Work hard + play hard = joie de vivre
