Previous Yachts: Arioso (130’), Lady J (142’), Unforgettable (100’), Mystic (150’)

Born and raised in Johannesburg, South Africa, Peter spent his vacations on the Cape, where he found his love for the ocean. After finishing high school, Peter decided to try his hand in the service industry and began working in fine-dining restaurants as a waiter, where he quickly climbed the corporate ladder and landed himself in management positions. After spending his early hospitality years overseeing the operations of various restaurants and nightclubs, he decided to venture into restaurant ownership with his childhood friend, and they found themselves opening a Portuguese restaurant called ‘Cescos’. After four years of growing and nurturing his business, Pete decided to explore his ever-growing interest in the yachting industry. He packed his bags and moved to South Florida, the yachting hub of the world. After 3 years working his way up in the industry, Peter proceeded to Captain several successful charter boats, such as ‘Arioso’, ‘Unforgettable’, ‘Lady J’ and ‘Mystic’. He currently holds his MCA Master 3000 and has been running motor yachts for the last 14 years, traveling extensively along the East Coast of the US, Bahamas, Caribbean and Mediterranean. He is extremely competent, enthusiastic, and loves utilizing his hospitality background and hidden talents on charter. When Pete is not onboard, he can be found scratching beats on his DJ decks, cycling through South Florida on his mountain bike or facetiming his pet Frenchie, Dave. Pete has a vast knowledge of yachting and chartering and is more than eager to create a safe and memorable vacation for all onboard M/Y FAR NIENTE.
