Senior Superyacht Consultant
Patrick has been working in the Superyacht industry since its inception, having sailed across the Atlantic for the first time in 1983. He then worked his way up to run yachts, becoming a Master of Yachts (3000t) in 2001.
Following this, he then became Master on vessels of various sizes on most of the world’s oceans before hanging up his ‘sea boots’ in 2010.
Since then he has focused on the build, refit and ongoing maintenance programs of Superyachts, acting as Owner’s Representative and/or Project Manager.
He has worked with shipyards throughout Northern and Southern Europe, Australasia and the United States on projects of varying size and complexity. During the course of his work he has developed close working relationships with naval architects, interior designers, rig designers and manufacturers, classification societies and Flag.
Patrick has also represented superyacht clients in large arbitration cases, where he has turned complex accounts into presentable packages and supplying testimony on issues and solutions. He brings an in-depth knowledge of the superyacht lifecycle from the construction period through to the operation and maintenance of Superyacht.
