"I started my time at Shepperton Marina as the Office Administrator and over the last five years have worked up to my current position. I have worked in marina's for the past 15 years and am extremely passionate about the industry. I believe Shepperton Marina - being a family run business - offers the right balance of professionalism with a strong feel of a friendly / family environment. Growing up by the river and being constantly around boats from a young age, I have an extensive knowledge of the local area and enjoy discussing with our customers their local boat trips and experiences. When I am not working, I like to spend time with my family, and enjoy cruising up and down the Thames on our boat".

"Shepperton Marina is prized for its tranquil location, quality facilities and close proximity to historical landmarks like Hampton Court, the hustle and bustle of Richmond and Kingston and is only three locks away from the tidal Thames. I started boating on the Thames in the late ‘60’s and have been in the marine business ever since. As well as the Thames I have experience of waters around the UK and the Mediterranean. I look forward to meeting and advising both new purchasers and owners alike. Our mission at Shepperton Marina is to ensure that we have a wide selection of well presented boats available for sale that will satisfy even the most discerning clients. We look forward to welcoming you to Shepperton in the near future".

I joined the Shepperton Marina team working two days a week, as an Administration Assistant in September 2019. As ‘front of house’ I am here to meet and greet you when you visit the Marina office, whether that is for support or purely to say ‘hello’. Outside of Marina life, I have over 25 years’ experience in the Incident Management and Business Continuity Industry. My love of boats started 10 years ago in the Solent, then progressed to the Thames where I have gained good knowledge of the river, facilities and attractions.
“My role within the marina Is the Marina Services Coordinator. This involves helping to schedule and deal with the cranage operation, fuelling and other yard services. I joined Shepperton Marina in February 2018, having grown up alongside the Thames and spent many summers on boats in sandbanks, Dorset. Previous to this I worked for 14 years in the Fire service as well as the prestigious car market in Sales. My interests are classic and sports cars and of course boating, working my way up to purchasing a Wellcraft SCARAB 38' KV”.

"I joined the team at Shepperton Marina in February 2019 as a Marina Operative. Previous to this role I spent 40 years working at London’s Heathrow Airport for Pan Am and United Airlines as a Maintenance Electrician and Air Freight Representative. I have owned a boat since the age of 21 and spent many summers sailing the seas both in the UK and abroad with my friends and family. My key responsibilities in this role involve carrying out daily checks on all boats, pontoons and facilities to ensure the marina is a safe, secure and presentable environment. I am thoroughly enjoying working at the marina and look forward to getting to know and sharing stories with customers that share my hobby."

I started work as weekend Dockmaster in July 2019. You will see me monitoring pontoons and boats on daily rounds, serving fuel, supporting moorers and visitors or trying to manage our guano. In contrast, when not in the Marina, I support IT Infrastructure Resilience and Recovery. With over 10 years of boating experience I am currently on my second motor boat and forever learning. It’s always great to share experiences with our visitors and moorers alike.
"I took early retirement from the Met Police in 2013 and joined the Shepperton Marina team. I have been involved with boats since I was 18 working on the police boats. My wife and I bought our first boat over 25 years ago and have had one ever since, it's an addiction. My other passion is motorcycles, and touring around the world on motorcycles when I can. I enjoy working at Shepperton Marina and meeting the like minded boating customers, providing the service to them I would expect myself".
