Will Faimatea

Director and Founder – Bond Technology Management & Consultancy

Will Faimatea is a yachting industry entrepreneur known for founding BondTM a consultancy firm specialising in yacht technology. He also founded Jetstream 15 years ago and won a worldwide patent for a streaming technology for yachts specifically.

He started in the industry as an ETO and saw a need for better technical solutions in yachting.

Faimatea has expanded Bond through strategic acquisitions while retaining the individuality of the acquired businesses.

Pre Covid, he saw a need for purifying and measuring the air quality of HVAC systems on yachts as the emphasis was only on temperature and humidity.

He emphasizes giving back to the industry and plans further growth. His journey serves as inspiration for young entrepreneurs, stressing patience, resilience, and industry awareness.
