It’s not just superyacht owners and charter guests who love FunAir inflatables and toys. We’re pretty popular with yacht crew and water sports thrill-seekers too. These groups of people love the sea and are all about having fun on board—with the guests and without! We know they are some of the best advocates for our products and we value their input and feedback on our designs. From our Inflatable Yacht Slides to our Jet Ski Docks, FunAir products are created with high-quality materials and are simple and easy to work with, something that yacht crew thank us for!
To support the best people in the industry and be able to give back to those that love our products most, we started an initiative known as the FunAir Ambassador Programme highlighting a select group of yacht crew and watersports lovers who have become part of the FunAir team and represent all of FunAir’s values.

Who Can Join the FunAir Ambassador Programme?
Anyone that loves the ocean, works on yachts or supports the superyacht community, seeks adventure, enjoys traveling, watersports, extreme sports, sailing, and the boating lifestyle. You don’t have to be a yacht crewmember to be part of the FunAir Ambassador programme, you just need to align with the FunAir perspective on life and have a fun-loving, thrill-seeker attitude.
Why Join The FunAir Ambassador Program?
There are several perks to being part of the FunAir Ambassador Programme. We list Ambassadors on our website with a personal, SEO-optimized profile page. Here, we include links to any websites, social pages, portfolios, or companies that they are involved with. We often mention our Ambassadors in our FunAir blog. This gives them a chance to share their experiences and grow their own presence within the yacht world. We send out profiles and interviews with our newsletter audience of over 6,000 superyacht captains, crew and industry professionals. And, if you’re crew, your face and profile can be shared with hundreds of yacht captains, which is an excellent networking opportunity for securing new roles on board different vessels.
FunAir has a lot of fans, particularly on social media. Many of our Ambassadors are keen photographers and digital creators, which means their images and videos are shared with literally millions of people per month when they are posted to our Facebook, Instagram, or TikTok channels. We also use their superyacht content on our website and within our marketing materials (with the proper accreditation, of course). In fact, two of our Ambassadors were featured in major media outlets because of their involvement in our programme. The exposure is incredible and is an amazing way to put your name out into the superyacht industry.
FunAir Ambassadors also are invited to attend high-profile yacht shows, regattas, and superyacht events across the world as a guest of the FunAir team. Spend time with us, network with industry professionals, and get up close and personal with some beautiful yachts!
Why Does FunAir Have an Ambassador Programme?
We see the Ambassador programme as a partnership. We want to support our Ambassadors in the adventures they take on land and at sea. All we ask is that they spread the FunAir word to yachts, crew, captains, and the wider industry. From tagging us in content to recommending our products to owners, we want our Ambassadors to be the on-the-ground (or more times than not, on-the-water) representatives of the FunAir brand. We’re also always open to different ways we can collaborate. Want to be interviewed for a blog? Have a yacht owner who can’t wait to design a new product? Need some FunAir swag to wear on board? We can make that happen. Ultimately, we’re looking for individuals who love being on the water as much as we do. It’s a fun, joint venture in the wonderful world of yachting.
How Can I Join the FunAir Ambassador Programme?
If you think you’ll be a good fit for the FunAir Ambassador crew, you can reach out to us via email or on any of our socials. Just tell us about yourself and why you think you’ll be a good match for FunAir. We love to hear from anyone in the yacht, watersports, or sailing worlds.
Meet the FunAir Ambassadors
Now we’ve told you all about the FunAir Ambassador Programme, it’s time to meet the team:
Grace has held a passion for the water and marine life from a young age and landed her first job on board a yacht because of her love of scuba diving. After completing her dive instructor certificate, she secured a role on a superyacht and never looked back. Her career has taken her up and down the East and West Coasts of the United States, Panama, Costa Rica, Thailand, and an Atlantic Crossing.
Cameron Green is the Bosun and Photographer on Motor Yacht No Bad Ideas. From being a competitive sailor to a sponsored stand-up paddleboarder, he feels incredibly lucky to have been able to spend so much time doing the things he is passionate about.

As well as rising to the challenge of being a female deckhand in a male-dominated department, LJ combines her passion for the water and outdoor activities with a phenomenal creative flair for photography.
Captain Paul Clarke on board Motor Yacht Loon is a true ocean lover.

The enthusiastic mind behind Motor Yacht Loon’s renowned watersports programme, Captain Paul is a qualified kite surfing instructor.
An Australian native, Jessica put on her first pair of water skis at two years old and became a competitive sailor not long after. She has crewed on many superyachts, and now, at the young age of 27, managed a 5-member crew on Motor Yacht Alani. She’s passionate about life and people and loves helping other women make a mark on the yachting world.

Before founding H2O Guru, George was an activities manager for luxury resorts in the Mediterranean, running teams of instructors to teach guests a range of water sports. From there he did a year in the Swiss Alps in a 5* Chalet and then six and a half years on Sir Richard Branson’s private island.
