Dutch Danielle has spent over a decade working on everything from creaky classics to carbon fibre racing machines, as either chief or second stewardess. Aside from the Antibes – Antigua circuit she’s also sailed to spots like Sudan and South Georgia, both on yachts that have won prizes, but also onboard boats that ran aground, or forgot to bring enough fuel! She recently made the move ashore and now lives in Palma, Mallorca, with a chocolate labrador that likes to bark at lapping waves. She’s a social media whizz and keen writer and it’s in the aforementioned Spanish super yacht hub that she keeps her ear to the ground, so she can scribble down her thoughts and findings on the latest yachting trends and industry changes.

Julian is Liz’s brother and our technical and waterside consultant. Having spent most of his life in, on, or under the sea there’s nothing much that can faze him. Combine this passion with his qualifications as an aeronautical engineer and experienced commercial pilot and it’s a killer combination – things just get done, stuff gets sorted and all with a quiet, calm and capable professionalism.
