Join our experienced crew on board Copihue

Copihue is looked after and operated by a permanent crew of two. Her Captain for over three years now is the vastly experienced ocean yachtsman, Michael Symes. Michael has sailed all over the world from the Southern Ocean to the Nordic fjords and across the world’s most hostile seas. He has safely guided novice crews round both the Cape of Good Hope and Cape Horn. An RYA Ocean Yachtmaster Instructor and Examiner, he has now given up the cramped cold bunks of training boats for a much more luxurious berth.

Copihue’s stewardess is Alison Hill who joined the team in 2011 after three years living and sailing in the Caribbean. Along with helping on deck, Alison looks after the interior of Copihue and will take care of your guests providing delicious meals, drinks and endless supplies of chocolate biscuits.

Together Michael and Alison make a welcoming, experienced and professional team to look after you throughout your time on board Copihue.
