How may I help?
Welcome, and thanks for visiting my website. I am currently based in Cowes on the Isle of Wight. My whole life has been centered around boats so I have expertise in various areas. Please don't hesitate to give me a call to discuss your needs, the chances are if I can't help, I might know someone that can.
Having worked as a yacht captain (and often engineer) for over 25 years, I have been fortunate to work on vessels of all shapes and sizes in many roles and situations. I am commercially licenced to 500tons and for the last six years, I have been working as a relief/delivery captain for charter yachts in Scotland and for the last 10 years I have been employed by a private yacht owner as his marine consultant, involved in the purchase/sale and management of his various superyachts in the Mediterranean.

In the course of this work, I have been inspecting a lot of vessels and sometimes surveying them pre-purchase, and found this is something I also really enjoy, therefore I am pleased that I can now offer my services as a surveyor. I am fully insured to offer Pre-Purchase, Insurance, and Valuation surveys on private and commercial yachts up to 30mtrs LOA.
I am also in the process of becoming a member of the YDSA as I expand the range of surveys I can offer.

Yacht Buyers Agent
I have acted for various clients as a 'Buyers Agent' helping them find the right boat for their needs, if you are in the process of looking for a vessel I would be delighted to assist you. Read more about this here.
Marine Electrical Work
I have always been interested in electrics and electronics and have upgraded and completely rewired some yachts. I enjoy staying up to date with modern equipment and improving yacht systems generally. Of course, I also hold insurance for this work.
