Purpose Crew Profile
Florian always loved exploring the world, his curiosity and craving for adventure took him to remote nature and bustling cities in over 60 countries - calling many of them home from Berlin to Auckland, Hong Kong, San Francisco, London, Nairobi, and beyond. Since he started to sail at age 11, he developed a deep appreciation for the unique elements it combines: a close connection to nature, the freedom and independence of travel, the inspiration and space to enjoy the moment, and the opportunity to bring friends together for an unforgettable shared journey. He taught at a sailing school and later took his friends cruising every year to more than 20 different countries, from tropical waters to the arctic circle. He is a RYA Yachtmaster with several additional certificates in sailing and safety at sea. Previously, Florian held an international leadership position at one of the most influential NGOs globally. He is always keen to find new ways of making our wonderful world an even better place while thoroughly enjoying and celebrating its incredible beauty. Florian now fulfilled his lifelong dream of owning and living on a sailboat to welcome friends old and new on an inspiring journey to the most magnificent places around the world. He loves to share the unique experience of cruising in glorious nature, discovering exciting new places, and enjoying quality time with friends and family from the comfort of a modern 50ft sailing catamaran. Charters with Florian are warm, relaxing, wholesome, authentic, exciting, and inspiring, leaving guests with memories for a lifetime. Everyone is welcome on ‘Purpose´ and everyone will want to come back. Sustainable practices are standard, from a water purifier to reduce plastic bottles to large solar panels and ocean friendly cleaning products. In addition, chartering with ‘Purpose´ means supporting change-makers who preserve the seas we enjoy.
Michael found his culinary passion at young age growing up in Uk with his mother a passionate cook and his grandmother, who recently released her latest Ethiopian cook book aged 97! Starting early with these diverse flavours encouraged Michael to be confident and bold with his cooking. He began as a grill chef in street food and restaurant kitchens all over London. It was not long before his talent was noticed and was asked to start catering private events and doing supper clubs. He loves experimenting with different cuisines and individual tastes including vegan. Having sailed as a young child, Michael is looking forward to the open water and the fresh produce he can work with to create a menu that you won´t forget.

Purpose Guest Reviews
Sailing the Grenadines with Captain Florian and First-Mate Mike
We had a group of 8 guest and really enjoyed a wonderful week being pampered by Florian and Mike
Floria guided us to many wonderful sights as well as some private and quiet spots. Purpose is a terrific yacht and easily accommodated us
Prince Michael treated us to one great meal after another such that we did not even want to leave our yacht to eat elsewhere
Embarked on a charter for 4 couples through the Grenadines with Florian and Mike
We had chosen the Grenadines as it is less crowded than the BVI and some slightly longer sailing stretches
Purpose was more than adequate for the waters and Florian took us to many beautiful anchorages as well as some of his private locations. Florian is also obviously very confident with his craft as he demonstrated many times that he can handle the yacht by himself
Our meals were also absolutely terrific. Chef Mike did and amazing job creating unique meals and presentations that we did not expect out on such a cruise. Most of us did not want to
Leave the yacht to even experiment dining ashore.
Sailing the Exumas

What a great way to truly unwind for a week! Florian and Camille were fantastic hosts and went out of their way to make our week onboard the Purpose fantastic. There were four of us in total – Mom, Dad and two kids – and Florian was able to create the perfect itinerary for us from Nassau down to Staniel Cay and back. We hit the popular spots, but Florian also had a few hidden gems that he had found exploring that really stood out to us. To top it all off, Camille did a wonderful job with every meal and really made them special with extra touches along the way. We all went home with big smiles and are, like others, talking about our next visit!

Our trip was amazing, thanks to the crew. Florian was fantastic. Our group ranged in age from 8-84 and we all loved our trip and have started talking about the next one. Florian paid special attention to each of us and helped us enjoy our time on Purpose. Highly recommend.
Fantastic Skipper - Fred
Cannot sing his praises enough. Sweet Caroline!
Go With the Flo (Florian)
Purpose is such a beautiful sailing vessel and the captain and cook are the friendliest crew to be on board with! Highly recommend choosing Purpose for your charter, and make sure to have Flo set the scene for a catamaran dance party! Nothing but good things to say!
