Captain Laurance Ottley started sailing in his early teens, some would say a bit late for a Brit, progressing from dinghies to offshore cruising and racing in both modern and traditional vessels. After a career in the decorating trade he took up sailing professionally in 1996. For the next 6 years he was employed first as mate, then as captain, aboard the 30 meter traditional wooden sailing ship IRENE in the Caribbean charter trade.
From 2004 to 2006 Laurance was full-time captain aboard another period wooden sailing ship, Thames Sailing Barge Kitty, doing corporate charters with up to 46 passengers before moving into the super yacht sector. In 2008 he took command of the Hoek-designed 30 meter ketch APHRODITE cruising extensively in the Med and Caribbean with the owner and guests over a period of three years. 2012 presented the opportunity for Captain Ottley to return to IRENE on a voyage around the Atlantic with sail trainees and cargo as part of a sustainable transport initiative.
On land Laurance loves to be 'let loose in the galley' practicing skills he has learned from working with great charter chefs over the years. Cycling is another passion. He rides road, cyclocross and mountain bikes and tours on two wheels. He once completed a 1,500km six week ride through Europe including the Swiss Alps and Pyrenees mountain ranges.
Having been on board SY REE since May 2013, Captain Ottley takes pride in his excellent crew management skills and maintaining the vessels he commands to the highest possible standards to ensure owners and guests experience the fullest enjoyment wherever they cruise.
We welcome Ben into the fold as man on the same mission as ourselves: proactively helping to improve the husbandry of our planet earth. Far from us having to goad him towards more sustainable methods of providing sustenance for crew and guests alike he's already well ahead of the game and we hope will help us take the next steps in our search for greener yachting experience. As for his culinary ability Ben has largely developed his training and skills over the last seven years as an itinerant Chef travelling and working to absorb as much of his craft as possible first hand with local ingredients and local people. His competence, from the perfect American breakfast to the most up to date formal dining in a wide range of international styles, will not disappoint.
Though Ben’s parents are Brits - he was transported as a small child from the UK to the US – California is his adopted home and where the American flair for unflappable service seems to have rubbed off.

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.
