CTO & Founder
Nothing is more important to Christa than customer satisfaction. With respect and a sure feeling for the wishes of the customers, it is her goal to find the optimal yacht for everyone.
Even during school, it was her greatest wish to work in the travel industry. However, her parents insisted on a commercial education with a focus on taxes, and so she became involved in the management of her parents’ business.
But in 2005, when she emigrated to Italy with her husband, she saw her chance to start her dream job and founded the charter company with him. It all started with a small fleet of motor yachts in the North Adriatic, where she herself was the host. In 2009, the field of activity changed. With many satisfied customers in the file, who always wanted to go on holiday somewhere else, the entrepreneurs decided to give up their own base and concentrate on the work as an agency.
Nothing is more important to Christa than customer satisfaction. With respect and a sure feeling for the wishes of the customers, it is her goal to find the optimal yacht for everyone. Whether for self-drive or with skipper or crew. Her good contacts in the industry, her expert knowledge of the yachts and her knowledge of the area are the guarantee for her success. Internally she is called Christapedia, because she has an answer to (almost) everything in the charter sector.
However, it is also important for her to treat partners and competitors with respect and correctness. This is how she always manages to realise special requests from customers.
She loves to travel, and no holiday should be without a yacht. She is convinced that you can only give good advice if you have experienced it yourself. Cruise planning is her hobbyhorse: she describes it as being like going on a trip herself when she plans the routes for her clients on the map.
She is the mother of a son who is also involved in the business. Her heart belongs to the animals, her Maltese lady is always with her, no matter whether she is going to the boat show or travelling. Time and again, she also gives a home to cats that she has taken in from the street. In her free time she likes to go hiking and swimming, she enjoys reading and loves to be creative, whether watercolours or acrylics, painting is her favourite hobby besides travelling.
