As a born Aquarius, I was an enthusiastic sailor from an early age. I enjoyed spending time with my family on my uncle’s boat and the fact that you can discover many places in just a short time has always fascinated me.
However, traveling should not only be a passion of mine but also my career. In June 2021, I completed my studies “Innovation and Management in Tourism”.The way to EuroYachting started with my bachelor thesis, where I dealt with the perception of sailing and Generation Z. While writing my bachelor thesis, I discovered the potential for sailing tourism, and during a mentoring program with Thomas Stranig I decided that I want to pass on the experience I had as a child to other families. The result was disruption in the market by combining yacht charter with hotel business. Thomas suggested Familux Resorts as a suitable first partner, as he had already had a good and long collaboration with them.
On September 20, I pitched the concept – that is now known as Familux Yachts to Florian and Julian Mayer. A few weeks later, they were on board. Not only as the first signature partner but also as co-founders and investors.
The name EuroYachting remained the same, a small homage to my uncle. There are definitely some stormy times ahead for EuroYachting, but above all, it’s just insane fun to create counterparts for our hotel customers on the water 🙂
