Captain Tim McMahon grew up in the sailing community of Maine, USA. As a licensed US Merchant Marine 100 Ton Master, Captain Tim has lived and worked on the water for most of his life. Following many years as a busy charter and yacht delivery captain in and around Hawaiian/Pacific waters, Tim spent 7 years living aboard the his own classic yacht Houhere and cruising the oceans and waterways of the world. Settling in Thailand in 1997, Tim operated a live aboard sail/dive charter company embarking on adventure voyages along the Malacca Straits, Thailand & Malaysian coastal cruising and pioneering live aboard cruising into Myanmar and the exotic Andaman Islands. In 2004, Captain Tim partnered up with Gulf Charters Thailand as operations manager for a fleet of 10 active charter yachts. This experience has provided him with the genuine knowledge of yachts, world cruising and the live aboard lifestyle which he enthusiastically passes on to SailQuest Sailing School Center students.

I learned a lot. Captain Tim has some great stories and can relate his experiences very well through them, giving great examples of real life situations and what to when something challenging happens.

Tim was an absolutely fabulous instructor. Every topic was covered in great detail, and he was very willing to go deeper when needed, and tailor the session to the student. If you're looking for more than just a certificate, but a genuine learning experience in a unique environment, SailQuest is the place.
