- Crew ProfileCaptain: Mark COCHRAN
Diploma: USCG Captain, 500 ton, STCW 2010, PADI SCUBA instructor
Mark Cochran is the quintessential combination of southern charm and simple sophistication. Born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia your Captain’s sense of hospitality to host his guests in luxurious comfort runs deep.
Growing up on a small lake adjacent to the banks of the Chattahoochee River, a natural and effortless understanding of wind and water was instilled at an early age.
Mark’s enthusiasm and thirst for knowledge has seen him wear many hats and pursue a range of varied interests culminating in what is the calm, deliberate, Captain before you today.
His love of the outdoors has seen him sail across the Atlantic, walk across Corsica, and SCUBA dive in Saba. An Ironman Triathlete and long distance paddle border, he has an inexhaustible drive and is effuse with energetic excitement.
Mark, having found his muse in his wife and partner, Kristen, of 22 years, the couple are perfectly synchronized. The duo developed their love of sailing and adventure when they made their home and business in the BVIs on the island of Tortola.
They have crewed several different catamarans together over a period of 16 years. Beginning with Amazing Grace, a Privilege 65 and after a few seasons at the command of Double Feature, a Lagoon 570, Mark took the helm of Sabore, a Privilege 585.
Having overseen a major refit and a couple of years in charge of The Cure, the first Lagoon 620, Mark and Kristen remained particularly passionate about the Privilege brand.
Ultimately having the opportunity to project manage the build and crew not one, but two, 74 foot, Privilege catamarans, Captiva 745 and now, Namaste the new Series 7.
As partners in life and business, Mark & Kristen’s passion, knowledge, and dedication is continually sought after by their clients and charter guests. The affable and confident Captain, Mark, is eager to chart the course for your next adventure on board, Namaste.Chef: Robin THOMSON (34)
Hailing from his families’ farm in Ireland, Robin grew up helping his grandmother in the kitchen making all manner of diverse and imaginative creations. This instilled a sense of fearlessness in the kitchen and a desire to try new and wide ranging ingredients.
At 18, Robin left home to study computers in Coventry, England. Upon graduating, Robin ventured west for a life at sea. Sailing from Boston to Tortola on a Privilege 585, Best Revenge, Robin then set to work on the world’s largest trimaran, Cuan Law. There he crewed for 3 years earning the position of cook and becoming a certified diver, which began a new passion in freediving.
In 2009, Robin returned to Ireland to achieve his Chef qualification advancing him to the position of professional Chef. Utilizing his new skills, he began working with new crew on busy catamarans, Privilege 65, True North and Privilege 745, Matau, pushing him to excel not only with food, but also as a sailor. He then went on to act a chef on board 85ft. Long Island, WindQuest.
Presently, Robin has spent years centered around the BVI’s cultivating relationships with local farmers, fishermen and distributors that allow for the creation of a farm-to-yacht experience that our cliental are sure to enjoy.
Indeed, keep your eye on Robin as you may see him heading under water, only to return with some freshly caught Lionfish to enjoy.
Robin is excited to be part of a well-polished and experienced crew aboard the new and unique yacht NAMASTE.Stewardess / First Mate: Kristen COCHRAN (44)
Born and raised just outside Atlanta, Georgia, and commencing her study of the art of dance at the age of three, Kristen Cochran has developed grace, poise and stamina that appears effortless. Eager to pamper and please, her southern hospitality and drawl will comfort you the moment you step aboard Namaste.
Growing up water skiing and wakeboarding on family weekend excursions to local lakes, her love for the water is natural. Her passion for boating was solidified with a family project refurbishing a wooden ski boat.
Her older brother’s move to the Cayman Islands was instrumental in her securing SCUBA certifications and enhanced her desire to also live and work in the Caribbean.
She met her husband, Mark, at University and their shared love for each other and water was obvious and undeniable. Continuing their pursuit for adventure, they took sailing courses that ultimately culminated in a catamaran sailing course in the BVIs.
Kristen’s first position in yachting, found her serving as Chef and Hostess on board a 65 ft., Privilege catamaran, Amazing Grace, with her husband as First Mate. Continuing her pursuit of knowledge and skills, she achieved her Captain’s license in 2001. For over 16 years, Kristen & Mark have earned their award winning reputation as a Captain and Chef team on several luxury sailing catamarans including Lagoon 570, Double Feature, Privilege 585, Sabore’, Lagoon 620, The Cure and Privilege 745, Captiva.
