Werner Trotz Founder, CEO and Owner
MarNav (Malta) Ltd is the brainchild of Werner Trotz, an entrepreneur who has combined his experience as a yacht manager and captain to create an offering completely new to the superyacht industry.
Werner personally oversees MarNav’s strategy, administration, executive committee, short and long term business development, fleet expansion and
German-born Werner emigrated to Canada at 19; and after furthering his education, taking up a series of senior management and executive positions across a broad spectrum of industries.
By the mid-1980s, it was time for a sea change and Werner embarked on his yachting career, sailing a Chris-Craft Constellation 2,500 miles down the Mississippi en route to the Caribbean.
Once there, Werner carved out an entrepreneurial opportunity when he took charge of a local island ferry service, quickly turning the venture into a success.
When that success led to Universal Pictures asking for his help to make a movie in the Caribbean, Werner jumped at the chance to get back into yachting.
Once more in the field, Werner was quickly snapped up to work as a captain for a company which owned three yachts and within six months, his talent being recognized, was promoted to executive fleet manager. Now working in business alongside his first love of yachting, he was fully responsible for all financial and maritime commercial operations, including searching for and purchasing a commercial superyacht for the owner of the company.
Drawing now on this experience, combining his business expertise with 20 years of maritime knowledge was a natural next step. The result of that combination was the creation of MarNav (Malta) Ltd and
