The Yacht & Skipper

Jekamanzi: Is a 50' Bruce Roberts Design built in 1995, she is a Bermudan cutter and has a pedigree of several trans Atlantic voyages under three previous owners, when I purchased her in 2010 she was in a poor condition and was in need of some major works before starting life anew in Scilly.... she has been extensively refitted over several years and re-launched in 2022. 

The name Jekamanzi is Zulu for Dragonfly or Damselfly which lends itself to our logo but Zulu being a descriptive language the word Jekamanzi literally translates as 'dancing on water'


Owner/skipper Paul Lewis born on Scilly and has worked extensively afloat, working for many years as skipper and crew on local boats. Working with Hicks and Sons Paul was engaged in a variety of roles including passenger, freight, postal and Trinity House contracts.  Having gained a yachtmaster qualification he skippered the Yacht 'Genesis' for St Martins Hotel taking guests on sailing day trips, and also undertook numerous yacht deliveries including crossing the Atlantic both ways.
