At Orcas, we aim to employ individuals who have been in the armed forces and have a minimum of 6 years' maritime experience. In this way, we ensure they have the correct organisational skills and sailing knowledge. Occsionally we find exceptional people from other walks of life.
Our team members hold a number of accreditations, including Security Industry Association (SIA) licences. We know exactly how yachts operate and can safely deliver them through high-risk areas, without the need for the original crew.
Orcas Associates' joint founders have more than 50 years' experience between them. They each served in highly respected elite military divisions: the British Royal Navy's Royal Marines and the British Army's Special Air Service (SAS).
Since leaving the Royal Marines and UK Special Forces (UKSF), they have worked on some of the world's most prestigious superyachts, both in security roles and as yacht captains. They are licensed to command yachts up to 3000 GRT (approx. 90m long).
