Karon Mahy

Yachting Team Leader

After a varied employment background, in August 2006 Karon gave up her desk job and pretty much sold everything she owned to go sailing.  Thus, her career in the Super Yacht Industry began.  She joined a yacht in Tahiti and helped sail it through the Pacific Islands to New Zealand.  She then joined her next yacht in the Med in 2007, followed by joining a larger yacht in Florida in 2008 and sailing the Eastern Seaboard of the USA, the Caribbean and the Atlantic Ocean. She then completed another season in the Med.  Karon joined her last yacht as a new build in a shipyard in Fortaleza, Brazil, before returning to shore in Guernsey in October 2010.

Karon joined the team at Bachmann’s in August 2011 as a Personnel Admi­nis­tra­tor. Since this time, she has used her wealth of knowledge to grow and expand the Bachmann Yachts sector of the business. Karon was promoted to Yachting Team Leader in June 2015.

In her spare time, Karon enjoys walking, hiking and spending time in the Highlands of Scotland with her family. She also enjoys sampling excellent seafood and sailing (when time permits). In addition to this, she is hugely passionate about mountains, Scotland, her cat, Noah, and her role at Bachmann’s.

Karon holds a BTEC National Certificate in Electronic Engineering, as well as a Chef Diploma. She is currently studying towards the Superyacht Management Diploma.
