Colin Hurner

Of dual South African and British nationality, Colin has spent a lot of time in workshops; his father comes from a long line of Swiss craftsmen, teaching basic carpentry and hand carving. Colin worked with him on many projects, including the restoration of an old 16ft catamaran. Recently Colin has been working in the Caribbean as deckhand on Martha Ann – a 70m superyacht built by Lurssen. Building boats has appealed to Colin since his childhood and it will be his new career after the course.
