Who we are

The very essence of LAVA CHARTER

Meet the Team

Our Team could not be more different. This is not only fun, but is above all the foundation for efficiency and team spirit. You can find everything at LAVA CHARTER except strict hierarchy. Each team member introduces his or her very own strengths and individualism at its best. You will sense this close cooperation immediately.


Base Manager

Jan has been active in the chartering industry for more than 5 years as a skipper & team builder. The friendly inhabitants and the pleasant climate finally took him to Lanzarote, where he has been actively supporting the Lava Charter team since January 2017 as a base manager. Jan brings fresh air to the team and, together with his colleagues, pursues the same goal: to drive Lava Charter as canary experts ever further and to bring his expertise to the Canary Island market.


Joerg "Joschi"

1st Special Sails Agent

The "multitool" at Lava is Joschi. After 27 years with one of the largest automobile manufacturers in Germany, a change of scenery was necessary. So why not to where you spend your holiday? Lanzarote. And what do you do there? Depending on what happens. At the beginning, the Cologne youngster folds out the paint bucket and tassel from the repairer and tops himself out artistically when painting and painting. White on white is "hidden art". Out of love for his holiday on the water, he soon replaces brushes and paint with wrenches, keyboards and scrubbers in our harbour. Joschi helps where he can. No matter if inventory, problems with the telephone system or rust spots on the stainless steel of the yachts. There is also an open ear for coffee at any time. Always according to the slogan "Here you will be helped", thanks for being on board.



Sails Administration Tenerife

We’re very happy to welcome Sylvia, who in November joined our Las Galletas (Tenerife) office, helping out with admin and handover preparation. With a wide experience in customer service and the restaurant industry, she has been living in Tenerife with her family since the 1980s.
Her love for the island and in particular for the fishing village of Las Galletas, makes her the perfect person to advise our charter guests on the local area. She also speaks Spanish, German and English.
Working with the Lava Charter team, she looks forward to the chance to improve her sailing knowledge.
