Our Team

Jane-Maree & Martin

Owners Jane-Maree and Martin Holmes have been sailing most of their lives.

Martin, sea going manager and skipper, is a commercially qualified skipper and marine engineer. Jane-Maree, shore based manager, holds a Royal Yachting Association Offshore skippers certificate. Martin worked for many years at sea before they teamed up becoming professional sailors sailing many locations around the world and across the Atlantic, Indian, Pacific and Southern Oceans - the latter route was used to deliver Jamarh from her South African homeport to New Zealand. You'll find Martin sailing Te Harinui and Jamarh on either a Private Day Sailing Tour or Multi-Day Holiday & you will often talk to Jane-Maree over the phone when planning and arranging your Abel Tasman experience.

Skipper Mark

Skipper Mark grew up sailing the National Park waters and has been with the team since the beginning. An expert at sailing and he knows The Park like the back of his hand. During winter months Mark sails and delivers yachts world-wide. Mark loves to sail fast and enjoys sharing the region's special and secret spots with his guests. You'll join Mark on your scheduled day sailing tours, private multi-day holidays and private day sailing charters.
