New Captains at Seabourn
The Yachts of Seabourn have recently expanded its fleet of intimate, all-suite vessels, and so the company needs new Captains and senior officers. The 6-star line attracts the most respected and popular captains, and has built a seafaring team to oversee its fleet.
The latest staff to join The Yachts of Seabourn is Captain Dag Dvergastein, a well-known Norwegian seaman, who used to be a Captain with Regent Seven Seas Cruises. Also recently joining Seabourn is Captain Ian McNaught, a favourite of passengers aboard the Cunard ships
In 2010 Scotsman Captain David Bathgate and Captain Sean Whalley an Englishman whose 25-year career includes commands in the Falkland Islands Fisheries Patrol, both joined Seabourn.
"With the addition of Seabourn Odyssey, Sojourn and Quest, we have created new opportunities for the right sort of senior officers," notes Pamela Conover, Seabourn's president and CEO. "With a complement of just 200 to 450 guests, our six intimate yachts offer an unusual degree of accessibility that really appeals to captains who like to socialise with guests and share their adventures, "she adds.
The Yachts of Seabourn's fleet consists of Seabourn Pride, Spirit and Legend, each offering 104 ocean-view suites and Seabourn Odyssey and Seabourn Sojourn, with 225 ocean-view suites. A third 225-suite vessel, Seabourn Quest, will debut in June 2011. Seabourn's captains command award-winning crews, passionate for delivering outstanding service.
