Matthew was born and raised in coastal South Shields, UK.
He began his maritime career shortly after leaving school working in the merchant navy and cruise ships which is where he first heard about yachting. Feeling that yachting would be the next challenging step in his career, he made the transition in 2016. Over his maritime career, Matthew has travelled to every continent excluding Antarctica.
During Matthew’s rotation at home, he enjoys spending most of his time with his baby boy. His hobbies include Brazilian jujitsu, football (he is a huge Newcastle fan), and has many hidden talents including playing the drums and guitar and baking delicious treats for the crew.
Previous Yachts- M/Y Cyan 48m, M/Y Serene 134m
Interests- Football, Brazilian jiujitsu, rugby & boxing.
