Matthew Smith
MASTER PHOENIX ONE

Matthew Smith

Matt started his marine career working with Halvosen Boat builders but his love of fishing drew him North to work in the commercial fishing industry progressing from deckhand through to managing a fleet of vessels before changing his focus to Superyachts. Matt brings with him extensive knowledge of the best fishing grounds in the Great Barrier Reef and Northern Territory.

Matt is also a personal trainer and when he's not at the helm of Phoenix One you will find him in the air spotting prawns for the Australian prawn trawler fleet!

Ben O'Hara

Ben grew up in a small South Australian town at the bottom of the Murray River. Although his family are all land lovers, Ben decided the ocean was for him starting his career commercial tuna fishing at 17 before switching to tourism working on the pontoons off Cairns on the Great Barrier Reef. Ben has also spent time abroad working on charter vessels in the Mediterranean.

His love of adventure means Ben enjoys travelling Australia in his spare time in search of great fishing, spearfishing and diving spots.
