Callie Coetzee was born and raised in Pretoria, South Africa. An early interest in machines led Callie to study Mechanical Engineering before leaving South Africa in 2007 to pursue a career in the yachting industry. After five years on yachts in the Mediterranean, Atlantic, and Pacific waters, Callie acquired the skills and licenses necessary to maintain M/Y ZOOM ZOOM ZOOM’s engine room and general machinery spaces to the highest standards. Safety of M/Y ZOOM ZOOM ZOOM’s guests and crew is Callie’s primary objective and is evident in his daily work practices. Callie is passionate about everything nautical; other interests include healthy living, fine food and wine, sheet metal work and manufacturing, and the internal combustion engine. When not on-board ZOOM ZOOM ZOOM, Callie spends his time in St John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada with his wife Kelly and their two dogs.
