Captain David Pott (Master 3000t) has experienced it all over the past 10 years (Getting into yachting, losing passports, expired visa’s, job hunting, courses to progress in yachting, etc) and can assist you with every aspect of the yachting world. David is very experienced in the industry with 3 major refits, 1 new build, and 20 seasons under his belt. He recently took his second Captain’s job on a 57m M/Y based in the Med. He is friendly and knowledgeable and has been in a hiring role for the past three years so knows exactly what Captains look for in a crew. His passion and energy is what will get you excited and push you in the direction of success! David is still very much in the yachting industry and is looking forward to accomplishing even more in the industry after recently completing his Master 3000t (Captain) license.

Samantha is David’s wife and has been managing South African Yachties for the past three years and offers a new dimension with her extensive interior experience. If you are looking to get into the interior she will give you all the tools you will need to move up quickly and what to expect when you start out. She runs South African Yachties full time after retiring from yachting to start a family. However, she is still very much involved in the industry, even doing an odd temp stew job here and there and training up Chief Stews and interior crew.

Together we can help you with anything and everything you need to know about this ever evolving industry. Through trial and error, we have developed a very strategic yet practical formula for preparing young yachtsmen and woman for the Super Yachting Industry.  It is all the information and ten years of experience, which you can’t get a certificate for, but is bound to help you save a lot of time and money.

Jackie joined SA Yachties in 2015 to assist with visa applications. She comes from an administration background and was the obvious choice for us when deciding on a responsible, capable person to bring into the South African Yachties family.
