Availability

Thanks for visiting my site, I am currently available for short term positions, such as relief work or deliveries, either as a mate on large yachts (over 50mtrs) or Master up to 500 tons.
This is because I am also involved in a lot of voluntary work. However I am able to plan dates ahead, so if you think I would be a good fit for your position, please don’t hesitate to call and ask.

Overview

My career now spans over 23 years, during which I have primarily run yachts of between 80 – 195 ft as a Captain and Stewardess/Deck team working together with my wife for 10 years.

For 5 years I worked for the same owner running both his 41mtr motor yacht, Rob Roy and his 41mtr sailing yacht Inmocean, until they were sold.  The work on Rob Roy involved, full commissioning and improvement of all systems on board, managing the marketing / brokerage process and trips throughout the Mediterranean, whilst on Inmocean we completed various owner trips and returned her to Lloyds class.

Additional Skills

I have a strong mechanical, electrical, IT, networking and electronics background and have been involved in managing various refits, including bringing vessels into class for the first time, and creating / implementing mini ISM’s.

Please don´t hesitate to give me a call on +447980892762  or message me on WhatsApp.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Given an impossibly small budget, he successfully planned alterations and improvements for the yacht - including the complete re-design and installation of a new electrical system throughout. By his carefully researched standards, dedication and endeavour he raised the level of the yacht to the MCA Blue Code standard with very few outside contractors called in.
