Introducing Dean Bennett, Founder and Director, DmB Yachting Group
Hi, I’m Dean, founder and director of DmB Yachting Group. Firstly, thank you for taking the time to visit our website. I hope you find what you were looking for. If not, please drop me a line directly, I’ll be only too happy to help.
For those who do not yet know me, I wanted to share a little about who I am and why I established DmB Yachting Group. Firstly, I’m London born, globally raised and have spent the last 11 years working in the Superyacht industry as chief officer.
My passion for sailing begun at an early age and after taking part in several racing regattas my love for being on top of, and diving beneath the waves grew. Shortly after immersing myself in the nautical and underwater world, I established a vast network of like-minded people, which led to me taking the necessary steps to leave life ashore and pursue a career at sea. My first port of call, like many, was the major yachting hub of Antibes in the South of France.
It is here that I witnessed firsthand the beauty, size and complexity of the Superyacht industry and the place where I secured my first position as a deckhand and onboard divemaster for a 56m shadow (support) vessel. The people and uniqueness of this new world blew me away, and I had the privilege of being guided by excellent mentors – I’m still friends with those people today.
What followed were amazing opportunities working directly for royal families, world leaders and founders of the world’s largest companies and the incredible opportunity to navigate to the most pristine destinations on the planet.
Genuinely valuing these experiences, I wanted to share my knowledge and expertise with the next generation of ambitious and professional seafarers to help them achieve their dream job and get one step closer to the life they’ve always wanted.
It has been the people I’ve met and the relationships formed over the last decade working as a chief officer onboard prestigious superyachts that set the foundations for DMB Yachting Group.
I believe in honesty, transparency and commitment. If these are the guiding principles in all your relationships, both professional and personal, you can’t go far wrong.
My work-life philosophy
Life is short and should be lived to the full and working in the superyacht industry allows you to see the world whilst challenging you to be the best crew member you can be.
Outside of work, you’ll most likely find me travelling; I’ve visited 80+ countries so far and love meeting new people and experiencing new cultures. I’ve always said the world is like a book and those who don’t travel only read a page.
I look forward to learning about your story and how we can work together.
