Jami grew up in his family’s boat yards, where his interest in yachts and the ocean began. He spent a few years travelling and sailing in various parts of the world, sketching yachts on anything he could get his hands on. Jami then decided to follow in his father’s footsteps, attending Southampton Solent and holds a Yacht & Powercraft Design Degree (BEng), completing his training with Dykstra Naval Architects in Holland. His steadfast passion for yacht design has lead him to work on a variety of vessels, both power and sail, cruising and performance. Most recently, he worked on the design team for the latest generation Hugo Boss competing in the 2016 Vendee Globe.
