With 5 successful seasons behind him, spent on yachts ranging from 27m to 67m, Jeandré has never once taken his eye off the prize and is working hard to attain the necessary qualifications needed for him to make vital progress within his field.

Now with 12 full years of yachting experience behind her, Lorrean is not only proud of the level of service she is able to provide, but also the sea miles she has covered. She has travelled all over Asia, crossed the Baltic and Norwegian Sea to Norway, Sweden, Finland, Germany, London and even Russia.
Lorrean's vibrant character means she loves to be part of a team and she is ever so happy to have Carla as 2nd stewardess by her side with whom she spent 5 years with on M/Y Jade.
Lorrean admits that travel is one of the things she loves the most. Anything from camping to climbing mountains (when she was younger), and now riding the ocean waves, cookery and reading join the list of things she likes to do.

Carla grew up in the beautiful islands of Samar, Leyte in the Philippines which boasts beautiful coastlines and beaches. Initially working in high end hospitality, the transition into yachting felt like the “right move” for her.

The extensive travels she experienced during this time have been invaluable and she continues to work with passion, ensuring that she takes care of the guests with utmost attention.
