Gary Durie

2nd Engineer/Electrical Technical Officer

Nationality: British | Languages: English

Born in Glasgow, raised in Cornwall, settled in Sussex. If Gary had to choose between city, country or by the water, he would certainly be by the latter, because for him, nothing quite compares to open water.

After finishing school, Gary began a four year apprenticeship in electrical engineering, which proved to be a great opportunity for gaining valuable experience, a hunger for problem-solving and a determination to help others – skills that provided a smooth transition into yachting in 2017.

As of the moment, Gary’s yachting career has predominantly taken place in the Mediterranean sea, but he was fortunate enough to spend an exciting winter season between South Korea and Japan.

Gary has a strong passion for sports, whether football, rugby, NFL, Cross-fit or Formula 1, whenever possible, you will either find him playing, reading about it or watching them in his spare time.

Gary joined M/Y Mirage in 2020.
