Ian (the eldest son) is our operations manager who co-ordinates not only our "turn-around" team, but maintenance and repairs as well. Ian was working for Riveria building luxury boats, until we head hunted him in 2007 when our business became large enough to offer him a full-time position. Ian can turn his hand to almost anything and has become indispensable to the business.
Amy (Ian's wife) is an integral part of the office side of our business. Dealing not only with enquiries, bookings, customer service, but also looking after much of our marketing - particularly our electronic media such as Facebook and Instagram.
When you sign up to receive special offers from us, you'll be sure to hear from Amy.
David has been working for us since 2004. As a school mate of Ian's, he has been part of our lives for a lot longer, we consider David our "adopted son". David's main role in the business is driving the houseboats and briefing hirers on how to use the vessels. Having worked with us for so long, David has plenty of experience to pass on to you, giving you confidence to handle the houseboats yourself. Behind the console of a boat and with customers, David is great..... but put a paint brush in his hand...... well let's just say that there is usually more paint everywhere else other than where it needs to be!
Peter (the youngest son) has been assisting with behind the scenes work for many years - filling the gas bottles was his job as a young teen. Peter came to work for us full-time in 2011 when his father's health deteriorated and we needed a little extra help. Now maintaining our large number of tender outboard motors is one of Peter's main tasks. Peter is extremely conscientious, always diligently discharging his duties.
Our turnaround days can be hectic on the marina with not only the main staff above, but up to 19 other staff members working to prepare the houseboats for your enjoyment. With some of our cleaning staff having worked with us for nearly 10 years and even Rob's daughter Kristy working the odd day when visiting on holidays, we are one big family team.
