Introducing Oneworld’s Crew
Oneworld’s professionally trained crew are here for you. With over 20 years of combined experience, all guests on board Oneworld can rest assured they are in the best possible hands.
“On behalf of myself and my crew I would like to welcome you on board Oneworld. We love the uniquely breathtaking waters Australia has to offer and we are here to show you the very best of it all. So please sit back relax and let myself and my crew take you to places many people can only dream of.”
– Matthew Baily, Captain
Born and raised in Sydney it was inevitable that Matt would return to Sydney’s waterways eventually. Having spent the better part of 15 years in Europe as a captain on charter and private yachts he brings with him the highest possible standard he expects of his crew and a level of service for his guests that rival his European counterparts.
Spending most of your childhood and adult life on the water means you get to know your cruising ground pretty well and Matt’s wealth of knowledge doesn’t stop at Sydney. The Whitsundays for a long time he called home taking guests from Airlie Beach to the surrounding Islands, Whitehaven Beach and the Outer Great Barrier Reef. With Oneworld’s cruising schedule no one is more perfect to show you all the places you’ve heard of but even more you haven’t.
“Australia is home and I might be a little biased when I say we have some of the most beautiful waterways in the world. With my experience internationally nowhere can you be in the middle of the hustle and bustle of one the countries largest cities and yet in a few short minutes be totally secluded in your own private bay. Yachting just doesn’t get any better than that.”– Matthew Baily

Growing up in New Zealand Hannah’s memory of the ocean was a stark contrast to that of her Australian crew. Wild and unforgiving oceans meant yachting rarely made its way South of the country where she called home. In 2007 that all changed when like many kiwis she crossed the ditch and in 2010 her love for all things yachting took a turn for the better. Starting her career in the Whitsundays Hannah has a deep love for the ocean and everything that calls it home. In 2013 she took another leap and entered into the infamous European yachting industry.
Working in Europe on private and charter yachts Hannah has built such a high expectation for herself and her interior staff nothing but the best will do for her guests. Whether it be hosting a cocktail party or creating memories term charter guests will never forget anyone looking at chartering Oneworld in the future can rest assured they are in the best of hands.
“There is nothing more satisfying than the look on peoples faces when you show them something completely new for the first time. We forget how lucky we are here in Australia and can become complacent and take it for granted. Yachting keeps me grounded and on a daily basis I fall in love all over again with this uniquely rewarding industry.”– Hannah Willan
