John Vitali (pictured right in the photo) is a highly motivated manager of people with thousands of ocean miles racing maxi yachts. It is a good combination that few in the yacht business have. John not only understands the ocean in both its placid and angry guises. John also understands that each person on a team is the key to success.
Carl Ferguson (pictured left in the photo) from Profab Central Engineering is one of those key team members. We develop strong relationships with all our contractors and suppliers ensuring a successful new build.
Born in Sweden many many years ago, and now lives in New Zealand.
Lars has been involved in the yachting industry for nearly 30 years, first as a charter captain on sailing yachts, then as a 'Yacht Helper' (broker/manager) in his own company in the South of France, BCR Yachts. After having moved to New Zealand early 2007, Lars formed a partnership with John Vitali and created Diverse Projects, which is a continuation with John's former company, Diverse NZ Ltd.
With Lars's extensive experience in yacht charter Diverse Projects can offer a very complete package to clients, commencing from your 'dream' to build a yacht and all the way to looking after it being for charter or eventually for sale.
Charter Broker for Diverse Projects Debbie Gribble has firsthand experience in the private world of luxury yachting. Her 12 year career as chief stewardess on board large charter yachts and prior to that a 5 year career in international 5 star hotels plus her extensive independent travels around the globe make her the perfect professional to head up the charter department at Diverse Projects Auckland.
Debbie has attended the major Mediterranean yacht charter shows – Genoa to Monaco. She has organised high profile events for charter guests during two of the most prestigious events every year, the Monaco Grand Prix and Cannes film festival and she sailed over 40,000 nautical miles to provide top class hospitality service in the Caribbean, Mediterranean, Red Sea and NZ during the first America's cup held in Auckland in 2000. Other roles include being project leader at the Barcelona, Southampton & London Boat Shows for Princess Yachts International.
