Bastiaan is one of a few yacht captains who can claim an authentic lifelong passion for sailing. Bastiaan was born on a houseboat in the Dutch river De Vecht. At age 4, he was given his own sailing dinghy and fondly remembers the feeling of independence as he held the rudder in his hand. To complement his love of water, Bastiaan received his PADI open water scuba certification in Curacao 15 years ago. He has since dived in sites all around the world, and has qualified as a PADI dive master and scuba instructor.
Bastiaan is thrilled to be able to entertain guests aboard Mimbaw. He is easy-going, energetic, caring and sociable and gets along well with people from all walks of life. He looks forward to showing you around his favorite nooks in the Caribbean.
