Operating in the Bahamas
VIVIERAE and Tender
Daniel’s passion for the ocean and yachting developed early on growing up just 5 minutes from the harbor of Auckland, the City of Sails. Following his love for power, speed, engines and all things mechanical, he completed a Degree in Mechanical Engineering at Auckland University of Technology. After a chance encounter and trying out commercial fishing in Australia, he dove into the technical side of yachts beginning his career in the engine room before transitioning in to a Captains role where he has had the chance to cruise the Caribbean, Florida, the US Great Lakes and East Coast, and finally the Bahamas. Daniel is an avid water sports enthusiast and instructor, scuba diver, kiteboarder, wakeboarder, spearfisherman and skydiver.
Alex grew up in Bath, England. In his early career, he spent 11 years as a professional Race Car driver and Race Driver Coach competing around the world for brands like RedBull and Oakley, as well as running a modest technical outerwear brand. He was first introduced to yachting in La Ciotat in France, from there he cruised the waters of the Mediterranean on larger yachts, before jumping the pond to cruise the Caribbean, Bahamas and Florida. His passion for the ocean and water sports combined with his experience and love for all things engineering have made yachting his true calling as both an engineer and mate. Alex loves to wakeboard, fish, fly-board, skydive, and enjoys freestyle skiing and stunt-driving. He likes to live his life to the fullest while travelling the world.
Leslie is originally from Versailles, France. She has been around boats her entire life, having left France at a young age to cruise the world with her parents on their 38 foot wooden sailboat. She traveled through the Mediterranean, Africa, Central America, the Caribbean and Bahamas before landing in Florida. After a short break from the seas to explore the land-lubbers’ life and to complete her International Business and Hospitality Bachelor’s Degree, she was drawn back to the Ocean. Getting back to her roots, Leslie soon found her calling and became a yacht stewardess. Her creativity and passion for entertaining and service has successfully led her through the industry and her attention to detail and can-do attitude have proven to be great assets. She is fluent in French and basic Spanish, and enjoys snorkeling, diving, wakeboarding, and skydiving as well as yoga, photography and reading.
