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 loved crossing the Atlantic to work busy charter seasons in the Caribbean and Owner trips in the Med.

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

In 2003, she started as an assistant in the C&N Yacht Management Division and pursued her career in the maintenance and compliancy of yachts under management. She swiftly became a specialist in the ISM & ISPS compliancy, an area in which she became the manager for many years.

In between loving to learn and further her knowledge, she 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 compliancy responsibilities of the division in 2013 and moved to the Senior Fleet Manager’s position looking after a large fleet of yachts.

Following on in 2018, she became the Deputy Head of Yacht Management Department based in the Monaco office, to then take over the Head of Yacht Management early 2019. She now manages the entire team, a job she also does with passion and dedication.

Always involved in teaching or 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.
