Living & Working in Malta
Since relocating to Malta for her new role with Azure Ultra, Olivia claims to have fallen in love with the island, where she feels completely at home. She is keen to explore more of the islands and the authentic local cuisine.
Olivia looks forward to cruising the Maltese coast daily – especially the scenic spot around St Peter’s Pool, which is also a favourite among charter guests. She has taken a particular liking to Miss Moneypenny, the sporty Sunseeker Portofino 46 forming part of Azure Ultra’s motor yacht fleet.
As a skipper, Gary must first ensure the safety of everyone on board in addition to being responsible for the smooth operation and navigation of the motor yacht. He strives to deliver outstanding on-board service on a daily basis, in line with Azure Ultra’s ethos of providing guests with a beyond ordinary experience.
Seeing guests enjoying themselves gives me so much satisfaction. The attention to detail that goes into all elements of the charter experience is what sets Azure Ultra apart from any other charter company. That along with the superb team that works so well together and shares the same value of delivering an exceptional boating experience for our guests.— Gary, Azure Ultra Skipper
Gary has always wanted to work at sea. Having completed his Motor Yacht Skipper Training Course at the UKSA, he went on to start his own charter company in Ibiza, which he ran for five summer seasons. On his return to his home town of Wakefield in West Yorkshire, he started working as Operational Systems and Projects Manager for a local supplier of Powered Access Equipment. Other positions became available to him when this role was no longer required within the company, but Gary had other ideas:
I took this opportunity to get back into the marine industry; so I updated my training and started applying for my dream roles. I was lucky enough to be offered the role of Boat Captain for Azure Ultra.— Gary, Azure Ultra Skipper
Hobbies & Interests
Gary likes to keep active by to going to the gym, and has also completed several charity cycling and walking challenges – including the National Three Peaks Challenge and the Coast to Coast Cycle Challenge. He also loves to travel and experience new places and sights, in addition to being a movie and computing enthusiast.
Living & Working in Malta
Gary’s dream role has always been to captain a Sunseeker yacht, so when this role became available, with Azure Ultra, he knew it was exactly the kind of position he’d been looking for all along.
After further research into Azure Ultra, it became clear that they shared the same values as me; outstanding customer service, superb quality and a great team.— Gary, Azure Ultra Skipper
Gary’s first impressions of Malta have been great, and he is really looking forward to experiencing more of what it has to offer when his partner and soon-to-be wife Lindsay joins him on the island.
Malta really is a beautiful place with a lot of history and a lot to see. The weather so far has been a dream compared to the wet, windy and cold weather of the UK.— Gary, Azure Ultra Skipper
Azure Ultra’s new skipper is always enthusiastic about meeting and getting to know guests while offering them a memorable experience. He cannot wait to spend the summer working on “three amazing yachts, with an amazing team, in a superb climate!”
