Andrés grew up sailing small sailboats and as an adult raced in regattas in the South Pacific along the coast of Chile.
After obtaining his MBA, Andrés worked for three years in the financial world but he decided that the business community was not to his liking and went back to his first love: the sea.
He has been in yachting for the past seventeen years and yacht engineering is his passion. During his career he has run the engineering department of many busy charter yachts.
Andrés holds a Y1 MCA Certificate of Competency.
Being perfectly bilingual Spanish/English has made things much easier for him as he is a passionate traveller and history buff.
His curiosity has taken him to most Latin American, European, former Soviet Union, Middle Eastern and North African countries as well as to South East Asia. He thoroughly prepares his trips and can talk about most any topic.
Andrés is an essential crew member and is always happy and smiling. He brings harmony to the Harle crew with his light-hearted humor and calm demeanor.
