Ben Price, Skipper and Owner of Major Tom

Owner and Captain Ben Price has had over 25 years’ experience on Sydney harbour, starting Get On A Boat charters with a passion for showing people how good a day out on the ocean can be.

Ben first starting working on boats since the age of 15 and has been working on boats ever since.

After looking for 7 years for the perfect motor sailing yacht for Sydney Harbour, Major Tom was finally found in Busselton, Western Australia in April 2017 and sailed underneath Australia by Ben and 5 other crew members where they took on the Southern Ocean.

Major Tom arrived in Sydney in June 2017 and went under an extensive re-fit to make her the perfect charter boat.

Since the re-fit, Ben has been skipper on Major Tom on Sydney Harbour ever since and looks forward to sharing his love and passion for the ocean in Queensland in March 2021 for their Winter season.

  • 7 years yachting instructing
