Commissioning and After Sales
Rich is the latest addition to the NEL team having joined us in August 2018, Rich has been involved in the boating industry since leaving school. He completed an apprenticeship in marine plumbing and sanitation before moving to a company which specialised in this. Over the years his skills evolved to add air conditioning, gas and electrical installations to his repertoire. More recently Rich worked at a boat refit company running all refits both abroad and in the UK, from major refits after fires to upgrading bow thrusters. During this time Rich retrofitted a bulbous bow to a Nordhavn 72, and the level of skillset Rich required on this job really showed us what a talented guy he is. His time spent in refits allowed Rich to become somewhat of a systems expert and we were delighted when Rich took the opportunity to join us here at Nordhavn. Rich will now manage and carry out all service work both here in Hamble and Europe.
Outside of Nordhavn there’s a good chance Rich can be found in the boxing ring! Having started boxing as a youth he turned professional 5 years ago and after a slow year of fights last year hindered by injury, Rich is hoping to be back in fighting form this year, so watch out!
Rich is also a big family man and with two young daughters at home, he has admitted it is only a matter of time before he will have to hang up his boxing gloves. When this day comes though he has expressed his desire to use his boxing licenses for youth training and we are sure of one thing, his daughters will be two tough cookies!
