While reminiscing over lunch in Mallorca, two semi-retired South African yacht-captains were reflecting upon what a wonderful and exciting life they had led. Old sea-stories were shared at the table and it became apparent that the career paths of these two mariners had been remarkably similar, and much adventure and good fortune had come their way on the high seas and in faraway harbours.
The trip definitely made me see the maritime industry in a broader light – that it wasn’t only about cargo and big cargo ships but also about people .. when it comes to yachting its very much about the the people, the lifestyle and the opportunity to see some of the most beautiful parts of the world.
Before the trip I was very set on pursuing my career in the commercial industry – on large ships – but the superyacht industry is definitely of interest. My plan is to get a second mates ticket in engineering on big ships and then work in the superyacht industry because I simply fell in love with the work environment.Bradley Felix
