About Me

I have over 35 years of experience within the marine environment, both in a professional capacity and as a fastidious yacht owner for many years.

I was awarded the annual YDSA Leslie Oliver Award at the Yacht Designers & Surveyors Association (YDSA) AGM, held in Bristol 29th November 2011.

The award was introduced as far back as 1981 when the YDSA AGM held that year proposed an award to a recently elected member who was showing the most promise. The award was subsequently named after long standing YDSA member Leslie Oliver, for his significant personal contribution to surveyor training.

Also a commercially endorsed Yachtmaster, active Yacht and Pleasurecraft Insurance Underwriter and  achieving a diploma (merit) in Yacht and Small Craft Surveying with the International Boat Building Training College in Lowestoft, I fully understand both the importance of safety and the vessels structural integrity when putting any vessel to its designed use.

All surveys undertaken are both thorough, informative, and based wherever possible on fact, not opinion.

I am a full member of British Marine Surveyors Europe an internationally respected network of experienced surveyors allowing access to a wealth of additional data, varying opinions and support. I am also an Affiliate Member of the YDSA.

I carry full Public and Professional Indemnity cover in accordance with the YDSA Code of Practice.
