Crew Profiles:
Pedro De Capitani, CAPTAIN
Languages: English, Portuguese, Spanish, a little Italian

Pedro grew up in Ilhabela, Brazil, an island with beaches, waterfalls, and rainforest off the coast of São Paulo. His passion for sailing ignited with lasers at the age of 9 and eventually grew into a career with positions on yachts including 23m CNB, SY KESTREL, 27.1m Oyster, SY KARIBU, 32.4m, and 42.9m Baltic, SY CAVALLO. Pedro is committed to providing a safe and enjoyable experience for his guests, while minimizing the environmental footprint of the yacht. For him, PERSEVERANCE combines simplicity with luxury, while also running as an eco-friendly vessel. He’s a friendly and approachable person who’s always willing to help. Pedro is also a keen hiker and camper, with a love of nature and the outdoors.

Bruno Basilio, ENGINEER
Languages: English, Spanish, Portuguese, a little French

Bruno’s parents introduced him to sailing at a young age in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. He brings a wealth of experience and skills from a Physics degree to his yachting background sailing around the South Pacific on 18m catamaran MOANA and serving as engineer onboard the legendary 39.4m J-Class VELSHEEDA. You might be surprised to hear that Bruno is most at home below the surface, where he can free dive, spearfish, and take underwater photographs. His hobbies have led him to adventures all over the world, including a stint living ashore in New Zealand. He’s always happy to share his knowledge with guests, especially his apnea breathing techniques.

Anton Schwennesen, FIRST MATE
Languages: English, Danish, German

Anton hails from the coastal city of Arhus in Denmark. He started sailing at age 7 on his family’s sailboat, and soon got hooked on dinghy sailing on Optimists and 29ers. His yachting career has taken him racing and crewing on 12m Classic Fife VANITY V K5, and joining the team on another Baltic, 34m NILAYA, where he continued to work after it was sold and renamed SHAGALA BAGALA. Anton also has a hospitality background from working at villas in the French Alps. He has a commitment to healthy living and has an abundance of energy and enthusiasm, and last but not least, he’s also a dive master.
