Hailing from Durban, South Africa, Brynn was born into the ocean life. Durban boasts a subtropical climate and one of the longest coastlines in the world. That is where his love affair with the ocean began. As a young man he participated in “ Nippers” which is a lifesaving program hosted at the beach and thus has been trained extensively in life saving techniques.
Brynn is what they call a water baby as he has always had a love of surfing, lifesaving, and water skiing on his boat back home. He also has plenty of cocktail experience as he has worked in some of Cape Towns most popular cocktail bars. He looks forward to serving you one of his famous cocktail creations and hosting your vacation of a lifetime.

Born and raised in Durban, on the east coast of South Africa, Grant lived around the water and mountains experiencing all aspects of the outdoors while growing up. Family vacations and weekends where spent taking part in water sports, fishing and riding off-road motorcycles. After finishing college he started a career in sales for Land Rover & Jaguar. While the company car was a great perk, he soon realized that he longed for the outdoors.
Looking for opportunity elsewhere, he gravitated towards yachting. Having a strong background with water sports and boats he found no difficulty adapting to that new life style which began in the South of France working on super yachts. He then made the move to the BVI working on catamarans and realized that the interactions with guests and being apart of something bigger, someone's happiness and memorable moments was really what drove him.
Outside of yachting, Grant's other passions are kitesurfing, water skiing, wakeboarding, fishing and golf. He looks forward to sharing those activities and stories with guests.
