Jessica Lee Hansen
ALANI, GENERAL MANAGER
An Australian native, Jessica has been an early bloomer in all things water related. At the age of 2, she put on her first pair of water skis and became a competitive sailor not long after.
While attending University, she coached the sailing team, which diverted her attention from nutritional medicine and drove her to Hamilton Island, where her journey as yachting extraordinaire began.
She has crewed on many superyachts, and now, at the young age of 27, manages a 5-member crew on MY ALANI. She’s passionate about life and people, and loves helping other women get involved in such a fun industry.
What Do you do for fun?
Sailing. Kite boarding. Hydra foiling. Snorkeling. Wakeboarding. Living on an island ensures every day is fun!
What Makes Alani Unique? What’s One of Your Favorite Moments on Board?
Our team. We are young, ambitious and determined to go above and beyond for any client with the upmost attention to detail, whether it be a service for the guests or creating extraordinary unique itineraries. We have clientele from all around the world that join us on board for all types of special occasions and celebrations, from weddings, corporate events, honeymoons, and family holidays to birthdays and more. The moment when a bride and groom say “I do” is one of my favorites. It is such a special time to be able to help celebrate.
What Do You Love about Funair?
When you’re buying a product, you’re not just buying a toy. You’re buying a company that cares. The ongoing support and commitment from the FunAir team makes their products stand out from the rest. And we love playing on them. We have a water slide, water matt and jet ski dock – the water slide is my favourite, hands down!
