Franc Jansen

Founder, Director & Fleet Manager

  • Languages: English & Dutch
  • Certification: BSc (Maritime Sciences), MSc (Maintenance and Safety Management), CEng, MiMarES.

In his 30+ year career as a professional seafarer Franc has managed over 150 yachts including some of the largest and most iconic in the world: ECSTASEA and PELORUS.

A qualified Navigational Officer, Marine Engineer, Technical Manager and Class Surveyor and former Yacht Management Director with two of the industry’s leading providers, Franc is known and respected throughout the superyacht industry for his candour and client centric approach to Yacht Management.

One of the first to introduce commercial shipping discipline into yachting, he has worked with leading associations such as MYBA, PYA and SYBASS to negotiate, develop and implement regulations such as the MCA Large Yacht Code and the ILO MLC 2006 which have helped shape the future of this industry.

“The most technically qualified and experienced yacht operator I know!”

Proudest Professional Moment

Securing delivery of a yacht to the Owner in time for his family cruise, after he had been told that the shipyard couldn’t possibly finish it on time. It meant me having to cancel my holiday so I could be with the Captain 24/7.

But we pulled together a great crew and made it happen – the sea trials were being conducted on the way to meeting the Owner and his guests. I will never forget the look on the Owner’s face when he first saw his yacht. It was magnificent.

Professional Mantra

One person does one thing, one time (and records it once).

I hate inefficiency and pointless admin.

Whether you are working ashore or on the yacht, we share information in a clever way to avoid doubling up on work and wasting time rehashing information for reporting.

Biggest Professional Gripe

The lack of transparency in this industry. That’s why we go so far in the other direction – full transparency.

Our clients have 24/7 access to the bank accounts and book-keeping system we operate. They have access to all our records 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Our clients can see the good, the bad and the ugly. They see the problems and they see the way we solve them. It’s the foundation of trust!

Passions & Pastimes

BUILDING MOTORBIKES

“I get a real kick out of engineering, speed and being on the open road. Building classic motorbikes is the gift that keeps on giving. I have built a Café Racer from a 1981 Kawasaki and a Scrambler from a 1987 Moto Guzzi NX650. They’re beautiful. And living in the south of France there is no shortage of mountain roads, coast roads and perfect weather to be out there all the time. And I still manage to honour my wife’s wish to not buy another bike – I just buy the parts and build them instead!!”

Franc shares a lot of what he has learned over the years in the JMS HELP GUIDES aimed at helping Owners and Captains get the most from their yachting.

Sam Thompson

Commercial Director, Yacht Manager & Head of JMS Crew

  • Experience: 12 years (seagoing), 6 years Recruitment and Yacht Management (ashore).
  • Languages: English & French
  • Certification: Cert RP, Master 3000GT.

Sam began his yachting career back in 1994 working on an 80 metre (262 feet) yacht that led him on an epic adventure to Thailand. He hasn’t looked back since.

A qualified Master 3000GT he worked on six yachts including two new builds before moving on land to start a family and specialise in professional recruitment for the Oil & Gas industry and commercial shipping working with industry leaders such as Technip, Subsea 7, BP Shipping and Bibby Ship Management.

A passionate sailor, Sam is a much liked industry professional whose known ability for getting things done is respected by Owners and Captains.

“Sam has been a massive help with finding new crew. Any crew he placed with us have been exactly what we were looking for, and are all still on board well over 12 months later.”

Proudest Professional Moment

The first time I realised that some advice I had passed onto a young crew member helped them to get to exactly where they wanted in their career. That was an extremely proud moment.

When I first joined this industry I got some great advice and guidance from a gentleman called Adrian J. Fisher. He was the reference in crew recruitment in those days, someone who certainly didn’t need to speak to a greenie like me, but he did, and it helped me understand what the whole industry is about.

So being in a position to be able to offer the sort of help and guidance dear old Adrian offered me, is gratifying to say the least.

Professional Mantra

I detest BS so I make sure I don’t deal in it. My biggest beef? Tell it like it is…life is so much simpler when we all know where we stand.

Biggest Professional Gripe

Sorry, but I have to say it…those Crew Agency cowboys who pollute our industry by just passing over crew CVs to Owners and Captains without as much as a reference check or interview. It makes my blood boil when I hear stories like that.

We, like all respectable Crew Agencies, are here to help Owners and Captains win valuable time and reduce the risk of high crew turnover by only presenting qualified, reference and certificate checked candidates, and in our case, candidates who we have also personality and character profiled to help ensure the maximum chance of successful integration. That’s how we earn our money and its how our clients end up saving theirs.

Passions & Pastimes

CRICKET, FAMILY & FRIENDS

I love cricket – watching and playing it. I notched up 220 runs ‘not out’ in a league game in the UK once…that’s something you will hear a lot more about I am sure, if we start working together. However since moving to the South of France I have limited opportunity to play these days, so I have reverted to my second passion in life and bought a very old motor boat which I take the family out on during the summer and spend all winter fixing. I spent a large part of my adult life crewing yachts, so passing on my enjoyment of the water to my kids and friends is just fun. For me a great weekend is to sail between the islands off Cannes, have a BBQ on board watching the sun go down with a glass of wine and swim with the sunrise in the morning. Perfect!“

Proudest Professional Moment

Successfully attaining Passenger Ship Accreditation (PYC) for one of the first superyachts to ever apply for this status.

Professional Mantra

All roads may lead to Rome – but let’s all try and take the same road to get there together. It’s easier to help each other that way and…it might even be more fun!!

Biggest Professional Gripe

The sometimes convoluted, unimaginative and often Certificate/Fee-based approach Maritime Authorities take to managing risks in the wider shipping industry.

Passions & Pastimes

LEFT-HANDED GUITARS

“Collecting, time and funds permitting, and playing left-handed guitars is something I love. As is the outdoors and going on camping holidays with the family. I reckon both hobbies come from my early childhood when I spent almost all of my spare time being involved in the Scouting movement. All that stuff gripped me then and I have never been able to let go it seems! It is also where my love of sailing and yachting stems from. Those summer days spent mucking about on steel-built, sparsely equipped, sail boats which could never be sunk or damaged, no matter how hard we tried, were instrumental in my latter career choices, and they are days I will never forget.”

Yacht Owner

Proudest Professional Moment

Several years ago, before the advent of today’s 24/7 direct global access to emergency room physicians, we received a call from the 1st Mate on a yacht voyaging from Viareggio, Italy to Hong Kong, China, via the Suez Canal, the Red Sea and the Indian Ocean.

They were many miles off Sri Lanka when we received the call from the vessel via the SatCom, which began with the opening line from the 1st Mate: “I’ve taken over command of the vessel.” He very quickly went on to explain that the Captain was having a medical emergency. We contacted a physician and via that same global conference call, determined that a kidney stone was the likely diagnosis and that emergency medical attention was required.

The management team mobilized its emergency response plan, found a medical facility then guided the vessel into this “war risk exclusion” zone, advising the Owner, the insurance underwriters and the Captain’s wife throughout the emergency. The Captain was eventually flown to Hong Kong for surgery from which he fully recovered and the vessel made it safely to Hong Kong where the Owner went on to commend the management team for their successful crisis management.

Professional Mantra

Focus on the people. It may well be the yachts that bring us to this wonderful, crazy industry but it’s the people we get to know, have relationships with and serve that lie at the heart of everything we do.

Biggest Professional Gripe

Crew turnover.

Passions & Pastimes

Marathons and my Family

“Aside from water sports, I really enjoy running marathons. The adrenaline rush and the buzz you get when you push yourself to the limit and pass that finishing line is one of life’s ultimate rewards. Perhaps one of the most memorable and rewarding marathons I ran was with my son who took part with me in his wheelchair.
It was a wonderful experience to have shared together. Cycling and racket ball are two other passions of mine when I have some spare time and need to give myself a good work out.”

Alex Waugh

Fleet Manager

  • Experience: 40+
  • Languages: English & French
  • Certification: Master 3000GT, Marine Survey, ISM, ISPS

Biggest Professional Gripe

Listening to people who gripe about “crew problems”. We all have had issues with crew from time to time but I always felt that developing a strong team is a skill that needs to be taught and with time and patience we can really get the best crew for our owners.

CHINESE CALLIGRAPHY

“I love travelling and singing, and I love the Gym – a one hour workout every day keeps me in good physical and mental shape, but I guess I have a real passion for Chinese Calligraphy. I practise it twice a week with a big brush and black ink on the traditional bamboo or Xuan paper. One year I came first in a competition out of 900 works from 30 different Chinese provinces. They elected me as Vice Chairperson of the Chinese Calligraphy Society in 2007. In China, calligraphy holds a distinguished position in the field of traditional art. It is not only seen as a means of communication, but a way of expressing your inner world in a very aesthetic sense. They say calligraphy is like a mirror – a silent reflection of the soul.”

Bad manners in general! I have been in the service industry for my whole life and it takes nothing to be kind and smile, even if you don’t really feel like it. People won’t remember what you said as much but will remember how you made them feel.

Passions & Pastimes

UPCYCLING

“Two of my favourite pastimes are taking my little Yorkie-Poo for walks on the Sussex Downs (although to be honest she often takes me for walks! I have no idea where she gets her energy from!) and upcycling furniture and ornaments. When I moved house I got fed up looking at characterless new furniture so I decided to seek out antique and second-hand furniture and upcycle it into exactly the style and colour I wanted. I’ve been hooked ever since. At weekends you’ll often find me in local second-hand shops looking for bits of furniture to do up! In fact, I was probably inspired by my mum – I have a silver trophy at home that I was awarded during my hairdressing days and my mum turned it into a vase!!!”
