Paula Nicholson

Senior Charter Manager

Paula’s journey in the yachting world began when she moved from the UK to the South of France. Immersed in the luxury superyacht industry, she started her career as a stewardess, climbing the ranks to become a Chief Stewardess. This position allowed Paula to travel extensively, exploring the stunning waters of the East and West Mediterranean, the vibrant Caribbean, and various parts of America.

In 2007, Paula transitioned from her onboard duties to a shore-based role, joining Ocean Independence as a charter manager. For over a decade, she applied her invaluable yachting experience to manage an extensive charter fleet, ensuring seamless operations and exceptional service for clients. Her expertise was further solidified when she passed the Mediterranean Yacht Brokers Association (MYBA) exam to become a fully qualified member.

In 2019, Paula returned to the UK and continued to pursue her career in yachting, subsequently joining Dean & Waters in 2023. As a Charter Manager she brings vast knowledge and dedication, specifically supporting owners whose yachts belong to the Dean & Waters Management Fleet and wish to offer them for charter.

Paula’s love for travel remains undiminished. She continues to explore far-flung destinations, enriching her appreciation for diverse cultures and experiences. Her global perspective and deep-rooted expertise make her an invaluable asset to the Dean & Waters team.
