Bruno Fazzini has loved sailing since he was a boy. It was initially a hobby, but he took it up professionally in 1994 when he started skippering Swan and Oyster yachts, both for private owners and charter firms. He has sailed the length and breadth of the Mediterranean for many years and has crossed the Atlantic numerous times. His travels have led him to explore the Pacific Ocean, Indonesia, the Tasman Sea, and the Andaman Sea. He specialises, however, in the Seychelles, as he has navigated its islands extensively. Since 2003, he has run a charter business to two parts of the world: the Mediterranean in summer; and the Indian Ocean in winter, including cruises around Thailand, Malesia, Myanmar and Andaman. In autumn, he heads to the Seychelles and Madagascar. His work enables him to stay onboard his yacht for much of the year and place his immense sailing experience at his guests’ disposal.
