I am available for either, deliveries and relief positions of up to a month’s duration. I am happy and willing to work as Captain, Mate or OOW depending on the vessel, and have experience in both sail and power.

After the last 10 years at sea with my wife running yachts of between 80 – 195 ft primarily as a Captain and Stewardess/Deck team, we are now living ashore in the U.K.

During recent summers, my wife and I restored a ruined barn on the west coast of Scotland, this explains our tendency to only take short term contracts, see for more details.

This project was finished in 2009 after which I ran a 41mtr motor yacht, Rob Roy until she was sold. This included full commissioning and improvement of all systems on board, managing the marketing / brokerage process on behalf of the owner, and various trips throughout the Mediterranean.

After her sale, I began working for Horizon Yacht Europe where I was in charge of their marketing and IT. I then ran the beautiful 41mtr sailing yacht Inmocean for the same German owner, sadly (for me!) she was sold at the end of 2014.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to email, I look forward to speaking with you soon.

All the best

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.

28mtr - Gaff Schooner

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
