Growing up in Malta, Daniel spent most of his life on the water whether it was family cruising or competitive dinghy racing with the Maltese national team.
After graduating from Edinburgh University (Neuroscience in 2010) he decided to follow a different career to start with and landed on an opportunity to skipper the Swan 90 Nefertiti.
Over the following 10 years Dan ran this commercially operated Swan 90 and was then tasked by the owner with the project management of his new Swan 115 Shamanna. After completion of the project, Dan served as captain of Shamanna and oversaw the warranty period before embarking on a career in project management that led him to A2B in 2022.
Dan brings strong skills in commercial yacht management as well as composite boat building to the A2B team and still keeps his yachting skills current as relief skipper and race crew on the internationbal regatta circuits.
