Former yacht Purser Paula McDonald has started a new company to help captains with their accounts and financial reporting. Yacht Books provides professional, customized reporting for yachts.
McDonald spent eight years on yachts with her husband, Kynan McDonald, previous captain of M/Y Pangaea and currently on M/Y Incentive. Prior to joining yachts in 2008, she had a career in the financial services industry. She has worked as a stew, chief stew and purser on yachts from 85-190 feet.
“I therefore recognize a need for accounting support for busy captains,” she said by e-mail.
