Meet Our 2018 Crews


Our crews play a big part in ensuring that guests have the holiday of a lifetime; it is due in no small part to their dedication, passion, humour and professional attitude that we welcome so many guests back on-board, 34% of our business is repeat bookings. 



In the pre season weeks all our crews went through a thorough training and induction process with City Sailing.  Health and safety onboard is of paramount importance so training for all crew included; First Aid, Fire Safety, 




We have four crews, each with Skipper, Engineer, Chef and Bosun for our three vessels and a relief Skipper.  The majority of our crew members have returned again for the 2018 season, including three of our Skippers and Chefs. We are delighted to welcome Skipper Steve Martin, Chef Carleton Smith and Engineer Andy Tait to the Majestic Line.

This year for the first time all our Bosuns are ladies,  Marina Murray and Claire Shepherd-Smith are returning and we welcome new faces Felicity Turnbull and Stephanie Hackley.   This means for the first time that each crew has at least one female crew member onboard.Our Crews For 2018 are:
