Captain - Andre van der Linde:
I have been working on the ocean since 2015 with vast experience gained from childhood, I have managed to fast track my career in yachting up to the point where I’m confident in my role as captain.
Crossing the Atlantic Ocean twice at the age of 19, on a sailing vessel, I fell in love with sailing and became a Yacht Master Instructor working for Atlantic Yachting Sailing School for two years. One of my students asked me to deliver his catamaran from Cape Town, South Africa to the Caribbean. Thereafter my professional yachting career started.
My hobbies include fishing, spearfishing, free diving, diving, golf, videography, traveling & exploring. I have a passion for people and creating experiences for guests that will have lasting impact after their stay. Incorporating my videography hobbies during charter, I create personalized videos of guests during their time on the yacht to send them off with memories to look back on.
