Captain Mark Colby

Captain Mark Colby has voyaged extensively around the world. He has sailed the Caribbean Sea as mate aboard Romance, a 100’ Brigantine, sailed the Pacific Ocean from the Arctic to Antarctica aboard a US Coast Guard Icebreaker, and has worked the oil fields in the Gulf of Mexico and the Sea of Biafra. As a private yacht captain aboard a Grand Banks 52 he visited many of the “secret and special places” he discovered while cruising local waters as a boy. He has delivered vessels of all sizes and types along the Gulf and East coasts of the United States and Canada. Small boat training, both sail and power, along with the teaching of navigation and seamanship has always been a rewarding part of Mark’s boating experience. Mark holds a Master of Education degree from the University of Southern Maine as well as a US Coast Guard Master license of 1600 gross tons, Steam and Engine and a Auxiliary Sail Master’s license of 100 gross tons.
