Andy Pomeroy

Having grown up surrounded by ships, and owning his first ten foot dinghy at the age of ten, Escape's owner and skipper Andy is a seasoned sea-farer.

Born and raised in Dartmouth, Boatbuilder and Skipper Andy is a well-experienced guide to the South Devon coast.

He has lived on and around ships for as long as he can remember, and since owning a 10ft dinghy at the age of ten, he’s progressed onto converting a 63 foot Scottish built trawler into a live aboard floating home along with many other vessels.

When not chartering and sailing his beautiful Gaff yawl “Escape” in his home town of Dartmouth, Andy can be found working with his dad building and maintaining other wooden ships, from Cornish pilot gigs to the local fishing fleet. He’s also been one of the six helmsmen on the Dart Lifeboat since the RNLI opened the station in 2007.

With his RYA yachtmasters qualification, Andy is always happy to share his knowledge, guiding guests in how to read charts and plot boat positions with the compass!
