Hi, my name is Lukas and I’m the man behind the Yachtman! :)
I was born and raised in Helsingborg, Sweden and my love towards the sea began when I was a little boy spending my days on the beach, and lather on sailing with my family. For a long time, I wondered where does this love come from? Finally I found an explanation that I like the most, as the president J.F. Kennedy said; ”And it is an interesting biological fact that all of us have, in our veins the exact same percentage of salt in our blood that exists in the ocean, and, therefore, we have salt in our blood, in our sweat, in our tears. We are tied to the ocean. And when we go back to the sea, whether it is to sail or to watch it, we are going back from whence we came.”
My first sailing trip was to Croatia with my parents and I was overwhelmed. I woke up every morning in a different place and man those places were amazing. I never felt more alive than then. As I grew up, I wanted more people to experience that same feeling. A little entrepreneur started kicking in when the discussion about our high school graduation trip started. I got it my way, convinced everyone they will have a time of their lives on a sailing holiday. I never lied; we really had the time of our lives. What is more important, I enjoyed in providing such happiness and enjoyment to others. Here I am now, more then a decade ago still making people happy.
Sailing around the world I came to realize that a yacht; whatever destination and charter company you choose, has its level of quality and you pretty much know what to expect when booking a Lagoon 39, year 2005. or 2015. Oh, but with the crew service it’s a completely different story. And I say this with 100 % security, the crew is what makes your holiday. Well experienced and easy-going crew can compensate even for a lousy yacht.
I was stubborn at the beginning; it took me couple of years before I was finally convinced to hire crew. I learned so much from the skipper and the hostess was serving such lovely dishes that I gained 6 pounds in one week. To have a professional on board, to have nothing to worry about on your holiday and to enjoy every stress-free minute you have is priceless. I knew then that this would be my new business goal; crewed yacht charter must become a standard service in the yacht charter industry.
So, my team an I created a special kind of packages from which you can choose the one that suits you best. We offer you a unique, new level of service in the yacht charter industry put together in our 3 packages: CLASSIC, PREMIUM and ALL IN.
We are here to deliver an unmatched service, to enable our clients an effortless and unforgettable holiday. We are waiting for you and we can’t wait for the adventure to begin!
Yachtman was founded by experienced industry professionals that identified a gap in the yacht charter industry; the level of service. Our goal is to offer You a better service, than the service we would want on our own holiday.
