Our captain: Irvin de Jongh
Our captain’s name is Irvin de Jongh, born in Curacao in 1996. He grew up in a house that is located at the Spanish Water and he always says that he learned how to sail before he learned how to walk. If that’s true? You’ll have to ask him yourselves! From the moment he got in a boat his passion for boats, sailing and Curacao was there and when he was older he started working at watersport rental companies. In 2016 he bought a 50ft Hatteras together with his girlfriend and started the company Miramar Boat Trips Curacao. The yacht is used for charters for families, business events, couple getaways and other private events. In 2017 Irvin bought the Powerboat together with his girlfriend and driven by his passion for sailing and working with tourists he will guarantee that you have an amazing day with Powerboat Caribbean.
As a very proud ‘Yu di Korsou’ (child of Curacao) Irvin cannot wait to show you the beauty of Curacao and Klein Curacao. He knows a lot about the history of Curacao and has some fun facts that he cannot wait to share with you!
Our first mate: Tamara Blonk
Our first mate is also the girlfriend of the captain: Tamara Blonk, born in Holland in 1993. She moved to Curacao to live the dream of working in the Caribbean and being with her boyfriend who is from the island. Her parents own a logistical company in Holland where they exploit a cargo ship so sailing was something that was in her blood from the moment she was born. Tamara manages the marketing and bookings and she loves boating so you might spot her behind the wheel too!
Team Powerboat is looking forward to welcoming you on board on one of our boats.
