Growing up, his father owned a few sailing boats and got Dean really involved to the point where he took up sailing as sport throughout his schooling career competing in regattas all across South Africa. After he matriculated he completed his RYA Yachtmaster Ocean and started sailing around the Cayman Islands and BVI running catamarans and doing what he loves by giving his guests the experience of a lifetime. With this experience under his belt, he continued on by working on Super yachts ranging from 140-165ft and cruising the waters in the Pacific Northwest and Mediterranean.
