Matt was born in the quaint sailing town of Annapolis, Maryland. He grew up spending most of his time outside and in or around the water, which fueled his interest for biology and nature. His adventurous personality took him to Australia where he completed his Bachelors Degree in Marine and Freshwater Sciences at Deakin University. While studying he became an avid diver, surfer, and spearfisherman, which would eventually draw him to the warm waters of the Caribbean.
Pursuing his diving career led him to complete the Dive Instructor course and move to the British Virgin Islands. He spent time working there as a Captain and Dive Instructor aboard a 47-ft catamaran. Matt enjoyed exploring the Caribbean islands and met his wife, Hillary, along the way. He continued to work throughout the islands captaining dive boats, teaching diving, and gaining experience on the water. This prepped him with the knowledge to start working as an engineer on boats in and around St. Maarten. His marine engineering eventually led him to meet the Horizon powercats crew. We knew Matt was the perfect fit for our charterers. Captain Matt is always excited to bring together his experience and ideas to make sure your trip is unforgettable anytime of the year.
Hillary grew up in Lake of the Ozarks, Missouri. With the lake in her backyard, she happily spent summers on the water. When the cold winters came, she visited her grandparents on their yacht in the Bahamas and developed a love for the ocean and travel. She pursued Photography and Environmental Studies at the University of Missouri where she went on to complete her Bachelor’s degree.
Hillary’s desire to explore and learn new things has given her a useful range of qualifications. After traveling and working in many different countries, her love for the sea led her to the Caribbean where she met her husband, Captain Matt, while obtaining her PADI Divemaster certification. She has traveled around the world gaining experience in the hospitality and diving industry, which has made caring for people second nature. While living in St. Maarten, Hillary and Matt bought a 1968 sailboat in need of a refit. Hillary’s eagerness to learn more about sailboat mechanics led her on a yearlong restoration project and gave her invaluable hands-on experience. Wanting to combine her passion for sailboats and knowledge in hospitality, she eagerly joined Matt in becoming part of the Eternity team.

It was amazing and we were very fortunate to have great weather. The boat is exceptional with beautiful staterooms and group spaces. Hillary and Matt were the perfect crew for our family. They were laid back but very knowledgeable about the boat and the Exuma terrain and sights. We enjoyed the conversation and the fun excursions. It was all we hoped it would be. Hillary is a master chef and the food was delicious. We would highly recommend them and this boat to anyone. Thank you for your help getting us connected! Warm regards Marie & Brad
