Eastern Mediterranean, Middle East, Asia & Indian Ocean Author
Adelina has spent over 30 years working in all aspects of the yachting industry. She is an avid traveller and has sailed all over the Mediterranean, Adriatic and parts of the Atlantic coast. Portuguese by birth, she spent most of her life abroad and in the process learned seven languages, five of which she speaks fluently! She started sailing whilst taking some extra curricular R.Y.A. courses in England, taking her first crewing job on a yacht based in the East Mediterranean. She eventually became one of the pioneers of the yachting industry in Turkey; together with her husband they founded the first boatyard in Göcek, nowadays a Superyacht hub and one of the most affluent destinations in the East Med.
Her working experience covers a wide spectrum of the yachting industry from boat-building and marina management to super-yacht stewardess, charter operations and brokerage. Besides representing the Superyacht Services Guide in the Eastern Med & Middle East, she also contributes to our Asia & Indian Ocean team promoting the development of Superyacht Services in these regions.
