About Us
Taylor Made Escapes is a family owned and run operation, located on beautiful Pittwater at Palm Beach, Sydney. Taylor Made Escapes was an exciting idea created by the Taylor family comprising of Mark, Lynne and Paul Taylor. Taylor Made Escapes prides itself on family values, flexible and innovative customer service and personal attention to detail on every escape. The Company is committed to offering an honest, reliable and affordable experience to each of our passengers.

Our aim is to provide a unique, enjoyable experience offering some true Australian hospitality. Mark Taylor grew up sailing on the South Coast of England on the Solent. Mark saved up and bought his first sailing yacht at the age of 11 and his pleasure discovered whilst sailing has remained steadfast ever since.

Mark is presently racing sailing yachts on the Swan River in Western Australia and brings great experience, knowledge and commitment to the Taylor Made Escapes Team. The team is also supported by Mark’s wife, Misliah, who is the Business support and financial manager.

Lynne Taylor has spent many years working and later living on boats. Lynne spent four years working on the MV Lady Hawkesbury which was a luxurious Cruise ship exploring both Pittwater and the Hawkesbury River. Lynne has a belief that boats, family and friends and even a limited time spent on the water, is ‘priceless’ and you always feel rejuvenated, relaxed and refreshed when you step ashore.

Paul Taylor is the family ‘Coordinator’ of dreams, ideas, business plans, action, adventure and the Manager of the Taylor Made Escapes Team! Paul has combined his exceptional skills of sales, customer Service, Event Management, Leadership, Maritime Qualifications and experience and tied them together with honesty, fairness and affordability for our passengers. Paul manages the day to day running of the Yacht Charters.

Nephews Adam Taylor and Patrick Taylor also have a range of maritime experience between them and Adam is an experienced and accomplished Sailor in his own right. Patrick designed and built his own sea going timber strip built Sea Kayak which he entered as a project for his HSC. Patrick was awarded the highest mark in the State of NSW in the Competition by the Engineering Faculty of Wollongong University which was a great achievement at 17 years of age. Patrick is never happier than when fishing down the coast on Tuross Lake in his tinny reeling in a flathead!
