After Jon obtained his diploma in Hotel Management and Hospitality he dove headfirst into the service and tourism industry, and eventually lead him into the direction of a yachting career in 2013.

Xanthea grew up in a small city on the North Coast of Kwa-Zulu Natal, South Africa. And always had a passion for hospitality and tourism after many years of traveling all over Southern Africa and enjoying different Game Parks with her family. Once her diploma in Business Management & Entrepreneurship was completed she gained several years of experience while managing various Game Lodges in Namibia along with her husband Jon.
