ThreespiritAmong many Feadship yachts in the CNI fleet, three of the finest are High Chaparral, Callisto andHurricane Run. We cornered theirrespective captains (John Colvin,Simon Clarke and Emile Coetzee) fora threefold view of the yachting worldTHE CAPTAINS ON. THE SUPERYACHT INDUSTRYWhat are your thoughts on today's superyacht industry? How has italtered since you first started out, and what changes would you like to seein the future?JCIn the ten years that I have been in the industry, it has become far moreprofessional. Being part of a yacht crew is no longer a gap-year jaunt, itis now a proper career. I think a balance between the two would be ideal - amore relaxed but professional approach. I don't subscribe to controllingthe life of crew in a military way.ECIt has certainly become an industry. What with brokers, shipbuilders,crew, training schools, classification societies, flag-state agencies,IMO, MCA, crew agencies, shipyards, agents and the yachting press. itis now a vast worldwide network of business opportunities. Regulation isthe most significant change I've seen. I used to navigate a 700GRTwaterjet catamaran from Tahiti to Thunder Bay in Canada and all I had wasan MCA Yacht Master Ocean. The insurance company was happy with thatin those days. Over the years, however, the yachts have got larger andcrossed the threshold of previous regulation. As a yacht captain and safetyconscious mariner, I acknowledge that it is very important to regulate22Isea&iISPRING-SUMMER 2010?feadshipSPECIFICATIONS: CALLISTOLENGTH . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .65m (213'3)BEAM . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .11.28m (37')DRAFT . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .3.55m (11'6)BUILDER . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .FeadshipDESIGNER . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .Terence DisdaleYEAR . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .2006GUESTS . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .12CREW . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .18CRUISING AREA . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .Please enquirePRICES FROM . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .US$485,000 per weekSIMON CLARKE (CALLISTO)Simon Clarke has been hooked on sailing since, "My first Atlantic crossingon a 10m (32') sailboat, surfing downwind in the company of dolphinsunder a full moon on phosphorescent seas. Magic!" British-born Clarke has been a professional yachtsman since 1985 andhas commanded the charter yachts QM of London, Squall and Liberty,among others. He comes from a sailing background and has competedin great ocean races the likes of Sydney to Hobart, Fastnet, Cape to Rio(now the South Atlantic Race), and Hong Kong to Manila. It all began in the streets of England's capital city. "Living in London,I met a girl who worked for a charter company and she told me about thiswonderful way to see the world - working on yachts. It was an excitingprospect for a 19-year-old would-be adventurer. I walked the docks andeventually got a job on a 20m (65') motorboat, in which we cruised theMediterranean. We navigated mainly via a Michelin restaurant guide, soearly in my career I got an appreciation for the finer things in life. Alongthe way I've met some remarkable crews and have had a great adventuresailing the world."Photography: Jeff Brown / Jérôme Kélagopian
