NSW Maritime has appointed Captain Simon McEvoy as the new Yamba Harbour Master, NSW Maritime Chief Executive Steve Dunn said.

Capt McEvoy replaces former Yamba Harbour Master Alan Jones, who retired after 15 years in the position.

Mr Dunn said Capt McEvoy is responsible for all pilotage duties and commercial shipping in the Port of Yamba, Australia’s eastern-most sea port.

'Part of the role is to ensure that marine operations including navigation, ship scheduling, and emergency response are provided in a safe and efficient manner.'

The Yamba Harbour Master is also responsible for the implementation of the Port Security Plan.

Mr Dunn said Capt McEvoy has worked in the maritime industry for 25 years.

'Starting as a deckhand in the mid-‘80s he has performed nearly every position on a wide range of ships until reaching the level of master in 2000. Since then he has been the master of approximately 12 vessels, visiting numerous ports around Australia and South East Asia,' Mr Dunn said.

'He has also been a maritime instructor with the Sydney and Hunter Institutes of Technology and an active member of the Australian Naval Reserve.'

The Port of Yamba is located at the mouth of the Clarence River in northern NSW. The port serves the Northern Rivers district including the towns of Grafton, Maclean, Ballina, Lismore, Casino and Coffs Harbour, and is the home port of a prawning and fishing fleet, and handles a range of imports and exports.

The Port of Yamba services the general cargo trade to Norfolk Island, New Zealand and the Pacific Islands.
