A determined, adventurous young Scot, I was absolutely enchanted by everything ’business and language’ from a very young age. I seized an opportunity to complete an international business degree that (over five years) took me from my beautiful Scottish homelands to Martinique, Antibes and Paris.
Upon arrival in Antibes, I soon discovered the world of yachting and worked on-board for 3 seasons before launching a luxury concierge/event management company in Cannes, 24happiness, where bluewater discovered me and invited me to join the team to create the role of the Sales/Marketing Manager for crew recruitment and training!!
Four years on, we are still growing at a very healthy rate by keeping our products and services fresh and innovative!
What I get up to outside of work?
Having always been slightly (maybe a bit too much) energetic, if I am not working I am busy doing random sports: everything from hip-hop/ break dance, paddle-boarding, jet-ski, water-sports to surfing, snowboarding and Pilates. I have also been a bluewater Jet-Ski instructor for guests & owners for 3 years.
This summer we are supporting two youngsters to make a difference while embarking on a trip of a lifetime. Both youths have selflessly decided to dedicate their time and energy into charities that are making a difference around the world.
Bluewater has been supporting the SNSM - Antibes Lifeboat for the past three years, by organising various events to generate both awareness and funds as without help from all of us, this vital part of our yachting community would not survive.
Every year we see a massive influx of green crew looking to make their mark in the industry and yachting forums seem to have the same topic posted weekly: "I am looking for my first position on board, where should I go, what should I do ..."
We provide yacht charter, yacht brokerage, crew training, crew placement and yacht management. We are a full service luxury yachting company that creates strong and lasting relationships with clients and crew
