Jacques has been working professionally in yachting for the past 15 years. He is one of three brothers who crew in the superyacht industry. Growing up in the South African coastal town of George, Jacques childhood passion for fishing, surfing and sailing has greatly contributed to his love of the sea so it is not at all surprising that he chose a life less ordinary working onboard private yachts.
A natural leader, confident and professional, you will find Jacques’ extensive charter experience in the Mediterranean and Caribbean invaluable. In his spare time, Jacques enjoys paragliding, sailing and most other extreme watersports.
