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

Deep Blue is a purpose built 38ft Evolution charter powerboat fitted with the latest GPS, sonar and radar thanks to                                   .                     

The boat is an extremely stable platform.

There is a marine toilet accessible from the deck. 

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