Your Skipper

I'm Simon, owner and skipper of Deep Blue. Originally from Newcastle Upon Tyne, I spent nearly twenty years working in Oxford before relocating to Eastbourne in the summer of 2021.

I left my career in Mechanical Engineering to take up a life on the waves.

I also used to be a wedding/event photographer at weekends. I am an experienced videographer and drone pilot. I was trained to the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) standard to fly drones commercially, and held a PFCO for a number of years.

I hold a valid commercial endorsement from the RYA

to skipper chartered motor boats upto 24m in length.

The Boat

The boat is an extremely stable platform.

Deep Blue is certified by the Maritime & Coastguard Agency, and has all the safety provisions for 10 passengers and 2 crew.

The boat is powered by a new (2020) Iveco FPT 450hp diesel engine.

There is a marine toilet accessible from the deck. 

The boat is regularly maintained and serviced in, and out, of the water.
