Captain Paxton grew up in George, a city in South Africa's Western Cape, on a coastal stretch known as the Garden Route. It is a very beautiful area that offered Ian lots of opportunities for exploration and discovery. He began racing sailboats with his brother when he was just 10 years old and even had the chance to represent South Africa in competition. His enthusiasm for racing nurtured his love of the ocean and naturally led to his career choice in the yachting industry.
Ian is also an avid scuba diver and is qualified as a dive instructor. It is one of the many reasons he particularly loves the British Virgin Islands. Guests who enjoy snorkeling or diving benefit from his extensive knowledge of local reefs and favorites dive spots. His other hobbies include playing guitar, surfing, hunting and fishing.
Daniel grew up by the ocean and would regularly go with his family to lakes and dams for wakeboarding and tubing vacations. Having spent the last nine years in the yachting industry, Daniel is here to stay, and he is looking forward to progressing through the industry as far as he can. Prior to joining the industry Daniel worked in the hospitality industry, he can make over 150 different cocktails several of which are his own creations. When not busy Daniel enjoys surfing, snowboarding, golf, and rock climbing.

The yachting industry has no global listing service to which all charter yachts must subscribe to, making it impossible to ascertain a truly up-to-date view of the market. Charter Index is a news and information service and not always informed when yachts leave the charter market, or when they are recently sold and renamed, it is not always clear if they are still for charter. Whilst we endeavour to maintain accurate information, the existence of a listing on Charter Index should in no way supersede official documentation supplied by the representatives of a yacht.
