"I started at Shepperton Marina in August 2010 as the Marina Assistant, responsible for checking all boats around the site and selling moorings. Since then I have worked my way through the various roles within the Marina, gaining knowledge and experience which has helped me to grow into my current role of Marina Manager. I grew up in Shepperton and spent most of my youth playing on boats on the Thames, thus gaining a good knowledge of the local area. Before working at Shepperton Marina I spent four years in the Royal Navy as a radar operative and travelled to many places around the world including two tours of the Middle East. My hobbies outside the Marina include socialising with friends, and of course boating".

"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".
