Welcome aboard the “Last Samurai” website.

At the factory in Xiamen, China


My name is Rick, my wife's name is Dianne and we live in Queensland Australia.

I retired from the Film and TV industry after 20 years as a Stunt Coordinator, Dive Supervisor and Underwater Cameraman.
We now own a Geotechnical Drilling company that operates throughout Australia.

Before Last Samurai I had the opportunity to crew some 9,000nm aboard a Nordhavn 55, Exploring the Kimberley area of West Australia, crossing The Great Australian Bight, crossing The Arafura Sea and crossing the Pacific Ocean to name a few, please take time to view the photos and videos of these trips.

Our boat is Australian registered and called "Last Samurai" however it was delivered to Dana Point in the US where commissioning took place between November 2012 and January 2013, we then sailed to Mexico before cruising north to Alaska. 
We have now completed our cruising in Alaska and are proceeding south once again.

Please join us through this website
we do hope you enjoy the ride.
