Crew members

Paul Busk


Paul’s boating career began at 5 in the waters of Bass Straight. Learning the ropes from his father and professional mariners, Paul completed an apprenticeship and pursued a career in the maritime industry on the East Coast Barrier Reef. After 5 years of working with his father, Paul completed his Masters/Captains tickets and left the family business to master commercial fishing industries such as tuna long lining, prawn trawling, and crab & trout fishing. Paul developed an extensive knowledge of Australia’s East Coast waters from Lord Howe Island to the outer reefs, making sure to have a dive, fish and surf along the way. A chance meeting with the owner of Sahana saw Paul leave the commercial industry after 27 years and begin a 6 year tenure spanning two yachts, two refits and 30,000 nautical miles, travelling all over Australia ranging from South Australia, The Whitsundays, Cairns and the Great Barrier Reef.
