CAPTAIN JACO & CHEF SIMÓNE
With Jaco, Simóne, and Euan as your guides aboard Tru North, you’ll immediately feel at ease. They are warm and joyful, and you’ll always feel reassured when in their care or listening to their beautiful accents as they regale you with stories of their ocean travels.
Jaco grew up boating and living along the coast of South Africa; he went on his first week-long boat trip with his dad at the age of two and hasn’t turned back since. Born in Namibia and having grown up in a small coastal fishing town called Velddrif in South Africa, the ocean is his second home. He is an avid fisherman whose spearfishing game is as strong as his freediving, sense of humor, and captain’s cocktails. Jaco is an accomplished man of the seas having worked his way up the ladder from Cadet to Chief Mate Unlimited on different vessels ranging from chemical tankers to mining vessels, circling the globe at least four times, until he entered the yachting industry in Monaco as Mate and Master. Be sure to ask him about his most daring adventures when you meet and let him know if you want to experience sailing hands-on – he is your perfect guide to hoist the sails.
Simóne was born in South Africa and split her time between England and a small surf town in South Africa, Jeffrey’s Bay, where she learned that life along the coast is where her heart and soul were meant to be. Her dedication and pursuit of learning have helped Simóne garner a wealth of experience in a variety of domains from creating masterpiece meals, to capturing underwater footage, and more – all of which she can’t wait to share with you. Be sure to express your culinary wishes and let her know if you want to join her in the galley to take part in a unique food-focused experience – especially if you’ve caught that night’s dinner.
Jaco and Simóne fell in love with sailing, and then with each other, having married along the way in their travels. Their passion for the ocean and preservation of marine life inspired them to become Scuba Divemasters and they would love to guide you through some of the most exclusive dive locations in the Virgin Islands.
Rounding out our seasoned crew is Euan, an English-born lad who grew up in Umhlanga, South Africa. With a desire to venture beyond the beaches, he fell in love with yachting and fishing when he wasn’t playing academy-level soccer. As an accomplished man of the sea, Euan would love to tell you tales of his 57 kg yellowfin tuna catch or his National Geographic-level experience stargazing while on night watch. Better yet, he’d be happy to guide you to create stories like that to take home to share with family and friends.
