Hello, I'm Honey.
Growing up in the small coastal town of Gisborne, New Zealand, I’d always had the desire to travel. In early 2002 I set my sights on the yachting world and never looked back. I couldn’t have dreamt the places it would take me or the opportunities it has provided.
From my humble beginnings as a junior stewardess working through the ranks of Chief Stewardess/Purser/trained Butler and having worked globally on both charter and private vessels, I have an in-depth understanding of all facets of the yachting industry including whats required of both crew and crew agents. I’ve been fortunate enough to work as an owners representative during two large new build projects in Germany which involved building the crew from the ground up, specifically tailored to suit the two very different programs.
After 12 fun filled years at sea, it was time for the next chapter of my life. Having returned to Gisborne to raise my young family, living the yacht life vicariously through my partner who remains a yacht captain.
I believe it’s absolutely paramount to make the right connections between Crew, Owners, Captains and the operational style of any vessel. YOA are streamlining the ability to make these connections and I'm extremely excited to be a part of the YOA team.
I'm here to help!
