All About Captain Edin from Top Shelf Yacht

This adventurous guy caught the travel bug after settling in the US. With a multicultural background of German, Croatian, and Bosnian roots, Edin made his way to Washington state back in 2000. And boy, did he fall in love with the great outdoors! 23 years later, his passion shines through stronger than ever.

Back in school, when he wasn’t hitting the books, you could find him hiking, biking, fishing, or shredding down the snowy slopes. 

From exploring the stunning Pacific Northwest to seeking new adventures, Edin was always an outdoorsman at heart. It was no surprise that he knew his career path would involve traveling once he graduated.

In 2013, Edin discovered his love for the world of yachting and embarked on a career aboard motor yachts in the Mediterranean Sea. With his sights set on becoming a yacht captain, he worked tirelessly towards his goal. During his time on the water, he had the pleasure of experiencing some of the most charming and traditional yachting destinations, such as:

  • Mallorca, Spain
  • Ibiza, Spain
  • Saint-Tropez, France
  • Antibes, France
  • Nice, France
  • Monaco
  • Portofino, Italy
  • Amalfi, Italy
  • Positano, Italy
  • Capri, Italy
  • Croatia
  • …and many more

Did you know that Edin not only worked on some of the most incredible yachts in the world, but he also earned a degree in Business Administration from Gonzaga University? Impressive, right? 

After graduation, he headed to the stunning Bahamas to work as a full-time yacht captain. There, he gained invaluable experience navigating the gorgeous Atlantic Ocean with frequent cruises from the bustling boating communities in the area. 

When Captain Edin joined the Top Shelf team to lead our crew in 2022, we knew something great had occurred. Now that he’s been with us full time for over a year, we truly know how lucky we are. 

With his impressive international expertise, he’s the perfect person to take us all on exciting new adventures. And not only is he an incredible captain, but he’s a caring and kind person as well. So come say hi to this friendly captain who’s ready to share his passion for adventure with you!
