Maximilienne Acquarone

Marketing & PR Executive

I describe myself as a world traveller and explorer at heart with a love affair with the sea. This perfect match is what led me to the yachting industry. I have lived on three continents, with my most memorable experience in Beijing, China, where I gained invaluable experience working in a digital marketing agency. Originally from Toronto, Canada, I’m a big city lover. Before moving to Europe, I worked at one of the most prominent PR agencies in Canada for its top luxury client, where I understood I wanted a career in the luxury industry. It was vital for me to gain valuable experience to get ahead of the competition from a young age.  My favourite yacht is ARIA I (Ex REGINA), as I had my first yachting experience onboard and was featured in my all-time favourite movie franchise, James Bond in Skyfall. Cruising in the Caribbean while being onboard definitely brought my bond girl fantasies to life. My favourite destination is anywhere in Italy. From the famous cities to the smaller villages, each place I visit leaves a lasting impression. I live by the phrase, “if it’s both terrifying and amazing, then you should pursue it.”

Mathieu Barbe

Charter Advisor

As a creative spirit, I enjoy implementing my creativity into my professional career, even if that means sliding down an inflatable slide dressed to the nines to deliver Champagne to guests on jet skis (yes, it’s a true story!). In my free time, I enjoy cooking, sailing and exploring the sea. If asked where my favourite destination would be, I would say the areas that I still need to discover, which is how to advise my clients. As far as yachts go, my preferred yachts are the ones that are intently used by the owners and the charter clients. in my eyes, the yacht needs to be alive and vibrant. So beautiful to see the action and enjoyment before stepping foot onboard. I bring more than 20 years of expertise in the high-end hospitality sector, including helping superyachts and some of the world’s finest resorts to achieve silver service standards. Yes, I can help your yacht too!

I am a sports enthusiast and skiing and tennis are my all-time favourites. I am also a passionate painter and love to go sailing whenever I can.  When I am not on the slopes, you can find me in my office in Lisbon, Portugal where I shine as a charter advisor instead of on the courts. After 12 years of working in the tourism and hospitality sector, I boldly made a career change to the yachting industry. In 2017, I started my yachting career as a yacht charter advisor, which enabled me to draw on my tourism and client service expertise, in the thriving city of Dubai.

Mauro Venceslai

Yacht Advisor

My passion for sailing developed very early and led me to the exciting world of Regattas.
I participated in various international regattas and fell in love with the exhilarating events so much that I decided to take on a bigger challenge and became the owner of a professional team, Vita di Mare. With a background in international shipping, I am well versed in the financial aspects of buying and selling vessels which I share with my clients. In my spare time, when I am not sailing, I enjoy cooking and golfing. Above all, I love to explore, in particular, the Norwegian’s Islands where my dream vessel to do so would be the Garcia Exploration 52.

Yacht Advisor

I have always been a very passionate sailor, holding an RYA Yachtmaster Ocean Licence, and completing five Atlantic crossings on catamarans. Initially, I studied law in Konstanz, Germany, but after a few years of practising, I decided to make a career change and pursue my love for yachting. I have now been working within the yacht brokerage business for some eight years and enjoy every moment of it. When not at sea, I enjoy adrenaline-packed activities, including biking, hiking, and climbing in the Alps. I am a big and family man and together we adore travelling. Our favourite spots are Seychelles and the BVIs- both perfect for cruising. In terms of my favourite yacht, the Spirit 111 is perfect for our needs. I don’t need a crew, her interior and exterior design is unique, a perfect symbiosis of classic yacht design and modern performance and she is one of the very few yachts that are truly sustainable, she is able to perform ocean passages without using any fossil fuels.

I have always been very passionate about boating, both sail and power. I began my career as a crew member on board a 36-metre schooner-rigged gaff top where I got to learn the ins and outs of yachting. After that, I moved to Cape Town, South Africa,  where I worked for nine years as a yacht advisor and crew volunteer with the National Sea Rescue. I’m always seeking to grow my knowledge of the yachting industry. In 2004, I became an EMCI Registered Yacht Advisor and I currently attend a superyacht management course at the Maritime Training Academy to be able to always be up to date with the industry standards. In my free time, I love to travel, my favourite destination is the Hebrides in Scotland. The smell of turf fire in the air, the early morning fog while sipping a coffee, endless views, fantastic legends and quaint pubs – the Classic Malt Cruise is still on my bucket list.  My favourite yacht was the first yacht I bought with my husband. She was a Trisbal 42, called Taniwha, built in aluminium with a lifting keel, cutter rig and steered with a tiller where we lived on for over six years before selling her.
