To whom it may concern, Captain Geff Dazeley has now been contracted 4 times to deliver M/Y 'FOUR WISHES' across the Atlantic and then manage the maintenance required for each upcoming charter season. In September 2011 this included a Lloyds intermediate survey and an extensive 7 week out of water refit, Geff chose and liaised with the yard who could haul out and fit in with our tight time schedule. He oversaw and organized contractors, surveyors, and crew, and dealt directly with head office over the budget and all relating payments. As captain of a successful and busy charter boat it is a huge relief that I can turn over the vessel to Geff knowing the crew will be happy and the vessel will be ready for the upcoming season. Geff has been contracted for the upcoming 2012 Atlantic crossings. please do not hesitate to contact me if you require further information

Captain Geff Dazeley recently completed the delivery of VvS1 from San Remo, Italy to Southern Turkey. Geff proved to be very thorough, well organised. and was well liked by the crew. I will have no hesitation in contacting Geff for future deliveries and fully recommend him to other Captains looking for a relief.

Captain Andy Grocott - VvS1 (2013)


"Geff Dazeley has provided M.Y.MOON SAND with very prompt and reliable service in the form of relief work as both Captain and Engineer as required by myself. Geff fitted into the crew and was accepted and respected by all my crew while I was not present. I would have no hesitation to speak on Geff’s behalf to any prospective owner or Captain."

In the period since Captain Dazeley's assumptiom of command I have had numerous occasions to communicate with him by telephone, fax and email, on insurance-related subjects pertinent to the movement of this world-cruising yacht. In every instance he has demonstrated a very high standard of professionalism,the knowledge of a seaman and the deportment of a gentleman.

Geff Dazeley was captain of my 112 foot M/Y Sensation from March 2004 to October 2005. This period included the time from initial delivery of Sensation from the yacht builder (Westport) and the first approximately eighteen months of Sensation’s operations. Geff worked very diligently with Westport to insure Sensation was in first class operating condition upon our acceptance of delivery. During the next eighteen months, Sensation traveled from the Seattle, Washington to Alaska, California, and Los Cabos, Mexico, then came back up through California and Alaska, and again back down to California. Geff exhibited excellent captaining and yacht management skills. Geff is an excellent driver, and is knowledgeable of all the equipment on board. Sensation was kept in new condition each and every day. Geff maintained a happy, likable and working crew of three (first mate, chef and stewardess). It was reassuring to have a consistent crew on each visit, providing a high level of service. Both us, and our guests, were always extremely appreciative of Geff, his crew, and the condition and operation of Sensation. Geff is knowledgeable, personable, and has a casual demeanor. Geff was a pleasure for an owner to deal with. I would highly recommend Geff as a captain. If you would like any further information, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Dear Geff: We wanted to write and tell you how much we appreciate the service you have given us over the last 3 years. You have maintained our Westport 112 "PASSION FOR EXCELLENCE" in immaculate condition both on the exterior and interior of the vessel. We hate to part company with both you and our yacht. If you ever need anything please give us a call and stay in touch.



Dear Geff, I just had a very nice chat with charterer. In spite of the so so weather, he told me that they had an absolutely wonderful charter, mainly because of you and your crew. He said that he could see how well you and your crew got along and that good feeling extended to the guests, they felt totally comfortable with you all and appreciated that you made every effort to please them completely. The charter exceeded expectations and I think we will have the opportunity for a repeat charter! Thank you so much for your great work! With regards, Bev Parsons

Geff Dazeley has served as first mate and captain of M/Y UBIQUITOUS in New Zealand, the Mediterranean and the Caribbean. He has proven to be a very capable Captain and his engineering background has proven invaluable in maintaining the vessel. At all timesGeff has been in full command of the varying duties in his position, from the selection and command of the crew to the many social responsibilities associated with care and comfort of guests. I would highly recommend him to any employer.

Having started my working career as an apprentice engineer in a large ship repair and refit yard, I have had many years experience dealing with ship and yacht refits.

Geff has maintained the vessel in first class condition since it was launched in October 1999. He operated the vessel throughout the Americas Cup campaign for which the vessel was contracted out to Lion Breweries for their executives and guests. Geff's duties involved full management of the vessel, including maintenance and management of other staff as required. We have no hesitation in recommending Geff for any similar position and would not hesitate for him to Skipper the vessel anytime he is available, if so required.

Owner WESTPOINT (2000)


Geff Dazeley accompanied the motoryacht "ESCAPADE" in a position of relief Skipper this year on the delivery voyage from Auckland to Tonga and then stayed on board the yacht for another week in Tonga. Geff acted at all times with professional and conscientious manner and we had a throughly enjoyable trip. I have met Geff several times since on social occasions and it has been my pleasure to associate with him.

Owner ESCAPADE (2000)


Just a note to thank you all for making our involvement in the louis Vuitton and Americas Cup so Memorable. As well as hosting us on a wonderful vessel (WESTPOINT) you made us and our guests feel very welcome, which contributed to an unforgetable experience for us all. While it was great to see Team New Zealand win 5-0, we wouldn't have minded too much if it had gone on a little longer so we could have spent a few more days enjoying your hospitality.
