About Marianne Danissen

Marianne spent over 10 years at sea sailing on various yachts as mate then later as chief engineer. She speaks English, Dutch, French and German fluently and considers herself as a world citizen. She is very passionate about her time at sea and loves crossing the Atlantic to work during busy charter seasons in the Caribbean and owner trips in the Mediterranean.

Marianne spent numerous years in the engine rooms of motor and sailing yachts, during which she has developed a true passion for engineering.

In 2003, she started as an assistant in the Camper & Nicholsons yacht management division and pursued her career in the maintenance and compliance of yachts under management. She swiftly became a specialist in ISM & ISPS compliance, an area in which she became the manager for many years.

Furthering her knowledge, she also became one of the few certified ILO trainers in the application of the Maritime Labour Convention 2006 in the yachting industry. She is highly interested in any new regulations which affect yachts in general and seafarers alike.

She passed on her compliance responsibilities of the division in 2013 and moved to the senior fleet manager’s position, looking after a large fleet of yachts.

In early 2019, she became the head of yacht management and manages the entire team - a job she also does with passion and dedication.

Always involved in teaching and making people grow, Marianne likes to encourage personal development for all in the industry.

Outside of work, Marianne loves spending time outdoors. She is a keen hiker, kite surfer and takes time to go sailing when possible.
