Captain: Gerry Ross
Captain Gerry is 45 years old and is from New Zealand. Gerry was born into a farming family; his passion for the sea drew him to the coast at an early age. In addition to being a captain for 17 years, he has had various maritime related jobs prior to this, working as a commercial diver and a commercial fisherman. He has worked on various vessels including charter vessel ferries, roros and cargo vessels before moving to sailing yachts and finally motor yachts. Throughout his career he has extensively cruised the coasts of New Zealand, Australia, Southeast Asia and Europe. He has been at the helm of Lady Azul for 4 years.
When not navigating, his interests include engineering, motorbikes and reading. Gerry is married and has 3 children.
Chief Engineer: Greg Biskup
Greg is 32 years old and is from Poland. He is a relative new comer to the yachting industry. After holding 3 positions on board yachts in Europe, Greg decided to put his engineer qualifications to use and joined Lady Azul in 2019. He’s a problem solver, fanatical trouble-shooter and an enthusiastic team player with a calm personality. His hobbies are kayaking and motorcycle riding.
First Officer: Farid Mohd ISA
