Master Captain Rick Crout

Location : Columbia, SC

Master Captain Rick Crout began boating on Lake Murray around 10 years old and fell in love with everything related to boats and their operation.

He grew up skiing, fishing ,etc and generally anything to do with water, which led to ownership of all types of powerboats.

Eventually his interest expanded to larger boats and offshore operations in boats such as the Grand Banks 42 and 49 Grand Banks.

He attended Sea School in Charleston and eventually received his 100 Ton Masters License.

He spent 2 years as a captain for Charleston Water taxi as well as delivering larger yachts from up north to southern destinations like Florida, Bahamas, etc.

In addition, he owned charter companys in Vero Beach FL, Charleston SC and now Lake Murray.

His other passion is Flying, where he made his living as Captain on various corporate jets. All of my flying credentials current and up to date.
