James Kirby – JMS Yacht Management

James is joining JMS Yacht Management as a Fleet Manager, based in Barcelona and Palma
Born in Nottingham, England and raised in Cambridgeshire, it has been over 20 years since he has called the UK home which is now Barcelona. Coincidentally, this is where his favourite marina is located: Port Vell.

After concluding studies in Media, he found himself working on other shores in the USA and Norway in educational roles, before taking the leap into the seagoing side of the yachting industry in the early 2000’s. A decision that carved out a happy pathway to captaincy having moved through all the ranks up to Chief Officer at the100m level; and Captain in the 60M range, his last command being on a 55M charter vessel. He attained an MCA master 3000GT licence amongst other relative qualifications, yet it was the working knowledge and experience gained over the last 10 years especially, on extremely busy dual season charter vessels, that helped him hone his skills to build sound practical knowledge of all things expected of a busy ISM/ISPS/MLC compliant vessel. 
James was lucky enough to be a captain in this dynamic, prestigious and exciting industry, which has helped in shaping him for the next challenge……..from ashore to yacht management. He is happy to be on shore and enjoying the role after one year in yacht management!

Outside of work, James has switched his hobbies to spend more time with his children involving a lot of swimming, cycling and climbing centres. A very active person!
