Crew

Fraser Cameron

Captain

Fraser started out dingy sailing, and then coastal cruising on small sail boats and power boats on the northeastern coast of New Zealand. Boating, fishing, spear fishing, surfing, living off the land and adventure in general runs in Fraser’s blood. In his late teens and then early 20’s, Fraser worked as crew aboard various private luxury motor and sailing vessels ranging from 80 ft to 180 ft in length based in locations such as, New Zealand, Fiji, Australia, the Bahamas and the Mediterranean. After five years in the super yacht industry, Fraser returned to New Zealand to complete his Bachelor of Science in Marine and Coastal Ecology which is where he met Olivia.

Olivia started cooking at a young age and through the years has developed a wholesome culinary style that is sure to satisfy after a busy day on the water. With more than 10 years experience in the hospitality industry and through managerial roles she has developed great customer service skills. Olivia became fluent in Spanish while living there at 18 and is keen to practice her skills with any Spanish speaking guests. As a family, Fraser and Olivia sailed their previous catamaran, an Outremer 45, from NZ to Fiji which they then circumnavigated and then returned to NZ. Over the six month trip Olivia developed great practical sailing knowledge. Olivia is also a marine biologist and a keen water woman who is currently learning to surf and spearfish when she isn’t either homeschooling their three gorgeous kids or completing the many daily tasks she is responsible for with a life at sea.

The yachting industry has no global listing service to which all charter yachts must subscribe to, making it impossible to ascertain a truly up-to-date view of the market. Charter Index is a news and information service and not always informed when yachts leave the charter market, or when they are recently sold and renamed, it is not always clear if they are still for charter. Whilst we endeavour to maintain accurate information, the existence of a listing on Charter Index should in no way supersede official documentation supplied by the representatives of a yacht.
