Welcome, and thanks for visiting my website.

I am currently based at home in Ardfern, just south of Oban in Argyll, Scotland.

Having worked as a yacht captain (and often engineer) for over 25 years, I have been fortunate to work on vessels of all shapes and sizes in many roles and situations. In the last five years, I have been working as a relief/delivery captain for charter yachts in Scotland and for the last 10 years I have been employed by a private yacht owner as his marine consultant, involved in the purchase/sale and management of his various superyachts in the Mediterranean.  You can download my full CV here.

As a result, I have been inspecting a lot of vessels and sometimes surveying them and found this is something I also really enjoy.

Therefore I am now fully insured to offer Pre-Purchase, Insurance, Valuation surveys on private and commercial yachts up to 30mtrs LOA and I am also in the process of becoming a member of the YDSA as I expand the range of surveys I can offer. Read more about my marine survey work here.

I have also acted for various clients as a 'Buyers Agent' helping them find the right boat for their needs, if you are in the process of looking for a vessel I would be delighted to assist you.  Read more about this here.

Over the long Scottish winters, I turn my hand to electronics / electrical work, which is something I have always been involved with. From upgrades to completely rewiring some yachts, I enjoy staying up to date with modern equipment and improving yacht systems generally. Of course, I also hold insurance for this work.  Read more about my electrical work here.

Please don´t hesitate to give me a call on +447980892762  or message me on WhatsApp. to discuss your needs and see how I can help.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Cameron conducted a pre-purchase survey for us and it was excellent. Detailed, honest and not full of these meaningless sentences that some try to impress...
