Meet the Crew

The People that will make your trip.

Our crew are very experienced and ready to take you on the adventure of a lifetime. We believe that to effectively run a boat this size, the crew are just as important as the equipment. We have purposely designed the boat so guests can engage in all aspects of the crew’s work.

The open plan Great Room is the perfect example, with the galley, dining room and lower helm all blending into one spacious but intimate setting.

Two Captains. Full Redundancy

At Grey Wolf we have learned, there’s no point only having redundancy in just the equipment. Every skill set needs to have doubled. If something goes wrong, you want a backup, therefore we have gone with two permanent crew that are both fully qualified captains that have complementary skills but all the qualifications and experience to get you home safely. Meet Stephen Reynolds and Peter Watson.

Stephen Reynolds

Having grown up in Guernsey within the Channel Islands, Stephen has been surrounded by the sea his whole life.

At a young age, Stephen pursued his passion of being on the water and left the island to join a vessel cruising the Baltic Sea. Following on from this experience, Stephen spent six years onboard a vessel as Captain cruising Scandinavia and the Caribbean.

Stephen holds an IYT MCA Master 200gt Unlimited ticket, STCW Proficiency in Medical Care, Approved engine Course 1, PADI Advanced Open Water, 5 Basic STCW Certificates, Firearms License Holder, Diploma in Engineering and Extended Diploma in Information Technology.

Crew Number 3 and 4

At Grey Wolf we have the capacity to have 4 crew onboard to meet your needs. However due to the flexibility and nature of our work we have decided to leave these open to your requirements.

The third spot is normally reserved for a Chef / Stew that can tailor a menu to your requirements and the fourth is a specialised guide (eg Mountain or Kayak Guide) or a professional photographer to teach you on your trip we can arrange to get the right skill set on board.
