Chris Booker

Lead Deckhand

Nationality: Australian | Languages: English

Chris was born and raised near the Gold Coast, Australia and from a very young age the ocean played a large role in his life. After finishing his schooling, he headed into the construction industry where he gained a lot of practical skills. However, his love for the ocean combined with his outdoor personality led him into the yachting industry in 2014.

Chris travelled to Europe to commence his yachting career which involved extensive Mediterranean cruising on M/Y Enigma. He then obtained his RYA Yachtmaster Offshore Qualification in 2017 and was employed as Lead Deckhand/First Mate on 40m M/Y Vegas in Australia last year.

Chris’ knowledge of the yachting industry combined with his responsible nature ensures all your activities are enjoyed in a safe and meticulous fashion during your stay onboard. He is always at hand to assist with any queries or questions you may have.

When not onboard Chris enjoys taking time out to travel back to Australia to spend time with his 9-year-old daughter. Chris is a keen skateboarder and enjoys keeping active.

Chris joined M/Y Mirage in 2018
