Capt. Lee was chosen on precision and punctuality in accounting and cost control, management of the crew and the safety culture on board, respect of the planned maintenance on board, and the happiness of the owner and guests, according to a company press release.

From Europe to Tahiti, Capt. Lee has worked with the yacht owner for more than six years and was nominated for “his remarkable longevity with his crew and close work with Fraser’s management team to maintain continued compliance for the yacht,” according to the company release. He previously worked with M/Y Mr. Terrible for nearly 20 years. It was also noted Capt. Lee is “recognized as demanding but fully dedicated to obtaining the best results for the owners; and with a transparent and positive approach.”

Nominees are chosen by Fraser staff, then a short list is then reviewed by a senior judging panel.

The award was presented by Fraser CEO Raphael Sauleau and COO Mike Busacca. Prizes included a Marine Divers Chronometre Ulysse Nardin watch, a UJET electronics voucher, a MHG Insurance Brokers cash prize, a Global Marine Travel travel voucher, Porsche travel bags, free berthing at both Port Adriano and Marina Ibiza, and dinner for two at a Michelin-star restaurant in the Balearic Islands courtesy of Port Adriano and IPM Group.
