Cameron Springthorpe


After a winter looking after a 33mtr motor yacht in Portals, I am now back in sunny Scotland, looking for a full time position running a yacht for a private owner, or alternatively relief / delivery work.


My professional career now spans over 22 years, during which time I spent 10 years working with my wife and have run yachts of between 80 – 195 ft primarily as a Captain and Stewardess/Deck team. During the last three years we have been living in our house in Scotland, where I have been running charter yachts on the west coast. However, the Scottish winters are too harsh and we have decided to move back to the warmth!

I have cruised extensively from the Arctic to the Mediterranean and the West Indies to the Eastern Seaboard of the States, starting with a sailing background from a young age before moving onto power boats.

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.

Cameron is a very hand's on captain, who was personally involved in all aspects of the work, whilst maintaining a managerial overview, his financial accounting was equally accurate and comprehensive.

Owner - 41mtr - motor yacht

Cameron proved himself to be excellent in every respect, he always exhibits sound judgement and has a depth of knowledge beyond the position he fulfilled.  

He can be relied upon to provide a willing hand in all areas of the vessel and was capable of complex fault finding and repair of navigational electronics.

Captain - 54mtr Feadship


I have sailed some 40,000 NM with all kinds of people, including Cameron, and I can assure anyone seeking a diligent and competent seaman that in offering himself as Your Skipper; in Cameron you can be assured of getting the right man.
