Chief Stewardess: Mary Joubert | USA

Previous Yachts: M/Y Australis

Born in Savannah, Georgia and raised under moss draped live oaks of one of the southeast USA’s low country gems- an island called Isle of Hope, Mary was influenced from an early age by the beauty of the ocean and its intra-coastal waterways. The vast marshes that give way to fertile estuaries became the playground of her childhood and there wasn’t often a summer day that didn’t involve launching any vessel available to explore the neighboring uninhabited islands. The inevitable mud bogging” episode and a mother being presented with a tattered T-shirt full of fish, ’crustaceans and other bottom feeders usually meant the day was finished. Convinced that the assurance of working outdoors was the chief criteria for furthering her education, Mary obtained a science degree in Biology and after university was employed by the International Riding Academy of Hilton Head, South Carolina. Oddly enough it was here that she was introduced to yachting, when one of her clients asked if she might be interested in a change of scenery?” And a change it was, spending winter seasons in Asia or the Caribbean and summers in the Mediterranean, each port of call brought a heightened sense of excitement and adventure. Mary now divides her time and work between the Equestrian and Yachting industries. She just recently finished a period of traveling sub- Saharan Africa working in a number of the continent’s most popular horseback safaris. Her passion for conservation on land and sea is one that she enjoys sharing with guests and hopes to meet your every whim and desire where experiencing your pristine surroundings are concerned.

Hobbies: Diving, paddle boarding, fishing and she soon hopes to graduate from wake- boarding to Kite boarding.
