ROSS BARNES , Second Engineer


Second Engineer

Nationality: South African

Ross was born in Durban, South Africa. He immigrated with his family to Vancouver during high school, but after graduating he was back on the road traveling. During his two-year backpacking trip around the world, he learned about the yachting industry and he hasn’t looked back. Ross has been working on yachts for a number of years and has had the opportunity to visit some of the world’s most beautiful places. After seeing so much by boat, he found he also is interested in seeing the world from the sky; Ross recently completed flight school. He is now an official helicopter pilot and would love for ZOOM ZOOM ZOOM to add a helipad to her sundeck to combine his two passions of yachting and flying.
