Capt. Adam Connolly of M/Y Calliope, a 150-foot RMK, was named Fraser’s Yacht Management Captain of the Year for 2019 last night

In announcing the award, Fraser Global Marketing Manager Lisa Peck described Capt. Connolly as soft spoken, results driven, and a great motivator. 

The award was presented during the annual Fraser Dockside Soirée on Nov. 3 at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show. Capt. Connolly’s crew was in San Diego with the yacht and could not be there to celebrate with him. The yacht is about a sixth of the way into a global trip, he said.

Capt. Connolly 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, Peck said, and is chosen by the fleet’s managers.

“Our industry is made up of yachts, owners, companies, and crew,” said Fraser CEO Raphael Sauleau. “Without crew, there would be no yachting industry.”

Capt. Connolly was awarded a Marine Divers Chronometre Ulysse Nardin watch as part of his prize package.
