Relief / Rotation Captain

Professional Motoryacht Captain. Experienced, professional and available worldwide.

Having been employed as a permanent captain for many years, I understand how hard it is to get away. There never seems to be a good time as the vessel is either travelling, having maintenance work or busy with guests. Many captains are only able to take limited breaks and face an accumulation of issues on their return. Having a regular relief captain is beneficial for owners and captains as it adds stability to the vessel and crew in the permanent captain's absence.

Dedicated solely to relief and delivery contracts I am available worldwide throughout the year.
