Ocean Nomad, Eco pirate and a very hard worker. This girl puts inexhaustible energy into getting us out on adventures... and save our beautiful big blue along the way. She really knows what she talks about. Supporting the Oceanpreneur won't only benefit yourself, but truly has a positive impact on the future of all of us!read more

Suzanne is living her dream in a nomad lifestyle. She promotes meaningful projects aiming to awake awareness and... propose solutions for the increasing dangers our oceans and their communities are facing due to irresponsible/uncontrolled human action.With outstanding determination and strength, she lives and acts very consistently according to her values grounded in environmental protection, sustainability-oriented solutions and network creation between likeminded people working in similar fields of action.In my opinion, sailing adventures organized by Captain Suzanne are: 1. A reward for the senses by discovering incredibly beautiful places and breathtaking sceneries. 2. An unbeatable way to get introduced into the nice world of sailing, 3. An open window to learn watching our world and the people from another more conscious perspective. I see her as an inspirational person who, with her example, inspire others with ideas and proposals to define or redefine life projects and use inner energy for more noble purposes.Please gather support in every possible way at your hand for Suzanne. Our oceans need strong committed people like her to advocate for our natural resources and leave them intact for the generations to come.read more
Suzanne is a great woman, a real defender of the ocean. All sailing people should follow her and listen to what she has... to say. <3read more

What to say about Suzanne? You have to meet her in person, but she is everything you would expect after you look at her... Instagram.She has a deep love for the sea and she is helping others to experience the same. It was an amazing experience to sail with her. She constantly inspired us to explore, to test things out and enjoy her little surprises along the way.I highly recommend to sail with her and was always feeling safe with her at the helm.read more
