Pinnacle Yachts was established by Colin Craig in 2000, with the purchase of our first yacht "Oneiro", a Jeanneau Sun Dream 29 with the second boat "Sirokos", a Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 31 purchased in 2003 (both are now sold and enjoying retirement in private ownership). The largest yacht "Thalassa", a Beneteau Oceanis 381 was purchased in 2006. “Thalassa” along with a range of other yachts available from trusted colleagues locally are all fully licensed for independent charter as required, and meet Offshore Safety Regulations.
Colin completed his sailing qualifications in the UK before heading off to the Ionian Islands in 1996 to work as a flotilla engineer, and then skipper. In 1997/98 Colin spent time travelling and working in New Zealand and Australia culminating in a position assisting running a new fleet of yachts in the Whitsunday Islands on the Great Barrier Reef. This was followed by a period as engineer and mate on a 28 metre yacht based in Palma, Majorca, before returning to the Ionian to work as assistant manager for a large yacht charter company. In 1999 he took on the management of a fleet of eight charter yachts before becoming completely independent.
Alongside the charter yachts Colin also operates a yacht brokerage, established in 2004 - details can be seen at pinnacleyachtsales.com.
