Captains’ Questions

February 9, 2016

Hi my name is Pieter Coetzee,

As we crawl into February, we thought we would grab Pieter for a quick chat.


Welcome to Captains questions, Can you introduce yourself?

  • Hi my name is Pieter Coetzee, I’m the captain on a Sunseeker Predator 82 called Hooligan.
    I’m South African and have been in the yachting industry since 2003.


What made you get into yachting?

  • My love of sailing, traveling and the outdoors got me into this industry, and the pay is not to bad as well!


What is your favourite yacht?

  • I’m a bit off a classic guy, so I love classic sailing yachts. It would have to be the stunning S/Y Rebecca. I will sail her one day!

I'm a bit off a classic guy, I love classic sailing yachts.

What is your favourite charter location?

  • It would have to be the Caribbean and chartering around Tobago Cays and the British Virgin Islands. It is a different world over there and there’s so much to explore.


Most memorable charter from 2015 and why?

  • One charter particularly stood out. It was a lovely American lady with her friends and it started out in Palma, before heading over to Ibiza. They were very pleasant people and we had very similar ideas for what a charter should be.


Favourite Hobby / Music / Car?

  • Kite- boarding / Reggae / Mercedes G-wagon.



I hope that gave you a bit of an insight into me! I hope to meet some of you this season onboard Hooligan!
