Meet The Team
Geoff Majer - Managing Director

for the development of the Superyacht industry within Australia.
Simon Henry - Crew Placement Manager and Superyacht Support
Simon was the Operations Manager of a Sydney Surf company when he heard about the yachting industry through a friend back in 2005. Resigning immediately, Simon flew to Antibes and found work as a 1stmate on a charter yachthis very first day of dock walking. With a track record like this it is not surprising Simon now heads up crew placement here at MYS.
Over the next 10 years, Simon progressed his career working his way up to captain, holding both MCA and AMSA qualifications and working on Superyachts throughout Europe, North Africa, America and the Australian East coast. With a good knowledge of both the local and overseas market Simon is equipped to provide shore based support to both foreign and domestic travelling superyachts.
Les Wright - Company Accountant
Having maybe stepped onto a yacht once in his early childhood, Les has very little knowledge about yachts other than that they cost allot of money to maintain. For what he lacks in seamanship he makes up in his stringent account keeping and advice on taxation law. Having now worked very closely with MYS for several years Les not only knows what a desalination plant is but how a foreign travelling yacht can claim one GST free.
