My name is Arnold Timmer. As a former Lieutenant Commander of the Royal Netherlands Navy and Lieutenant Colonel of the Royal Netherlands Air Force I always had a high interest in yachting and management. Since 2002 I am owner and freelance Yacht Captain (Yacht Master 500GT unlimited with commercial endorsement and Chief Mate unlimited) at Nauticon Yacht Services BV. This company takes care of private and chartered yachts and takes care of your yacht delivery.
From 2002 till now I have sailed more than hundred thousands of sea miles and gained a lot of experience. Thanks to the many years and the combination of not only working as a yacht master but also as a yacht manager I have a full understanding of all areas in running and managing a yacht. As yacht captain and yacht manager I know how important it is to have a good understanding with the yachts owner or business representative.
Besides the operational and technical management of running a yacht including navigation, maneuverings and crew resource management I have gained experience during some intensive refit and new build projects. If you like to hire me as your yacht captain, yacht manager or project manager, please contact me. You can find my contact details at the contact page.
