“YPI has all the respect and experience you would expect from over 44 years in the business…but it’s got the buzz and energy of a young start-up. That’s just perfect.”
Swedish-born Stanley has over 17 years’ experience in commercial shipping and yachting with an impressive set of qualifications to match. Graduating with a BSC in Nautical Science, he was Chief Officer on tankers, cargo ships and ferries before landing an astounding first yachting job as Second Officer overseeing the build of the stunning 73m ‘QUEEN M’ at Lürssen – a yacht for which he also wrote and implemented the ISM and ISPS. Since then he oversaw the build and sailed on the 90m Lürssen ‘AIR’ (now ‘ICE’) as Chief Officer and acted as Chief Mate or Captain on respected yachts such as the 55m Trinity ‘MUSTIQUE’, the 39m Feadship ‘KATRION’ and the 45m Benetti ‘ZITA’.
In his role as Fleet Manager and Fleet Development Officer for YPI, Stanley’s understanding of the industry, the yachts and the business, ensures YPI clients tap into an insight and a network not easily found elsewhere.
Married with two young girls, Stanley enjoys his sport including kitesurfing, skiing, golf, deep sea diving and flying.
