Eclipse 114 Crew Profile
CAPTAIN JACO PIETERSE:
Captain Jacobus Pieterse spent his childhood growing up grew up along the ocean and in the city in his native South Africa.

Jaco is an easy to talk to person, who has a sense of adventure and relishes exploring new places. He spent a lot of time cruising the Indian Ocean, which he loves for its vast unspoiled areas. He arrived to Sint Maarten about 6 years ago and has been cruising the local waters there ever since. The area has become a home of sorts, and Jaco has designed interesting venues for all types of guests, depending on what they want to do, be it intensive watersports, horse back riding, touring, or just quiet pristine places to relax. He feels the service on board should tailor to the guest´s preferences. From a friendly casual atmosphere to a refined discreet silver service, Jaco will deliver what fits!

10 day charter in January 2021 in St Barths
Thank you Captain Willem, Chef Yvonne, and the rest of the wonderful crew on M/Y Eclipse! Your hard work and focus on detail, along with your warm and caring spirits helped make our vacation to St Barths and St Martin special and magical! We can’t wait to return! We have had many vacations on boats in the Caribbean, and this was by far the best! The food was fantastic - and perfect according to our several dietary restrictions - varied, tasty, interesting! There was always a helping hand, and you ensured we could do everything that we asked to do! Thank you, thank you, thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

10 day charter in January 2021 in St Barths
I just wanted to send this note of thanks on behalf of Allison and myself to the whole Eclipse Team. Our trip with you and your crew in St. Barth was completely amazing, including wonderful service from a crew who was very engaged and super-fun to be around. I certainly hope we are able to do this again at some point. This was our first trip to St. Barth and we really appreciate all you and the crew did to make it special, and hilariously FUN!
