Richard Martin - Boatshed Chichester
Ever since I can remember I have been fascinated with all things that float.
When I was about five years old I would go boating with my father in both sail and powerboats and later, as the years went on, there was a procession of water craft that I owned which had me venturing out in some astonishing conditions around the coast.
During the the late 90’s I became involved in boats from a commercial point of view which included the design and fitting out of new craft, sales and components – one thing then lead to another and I found myself running my own sea school and becoming an RYA Advanced Powerboat Instructor.
Today, working with Boatshed, gives me the opportunity to to go on board a huge variety of boats and chat to owners and prospective purchasers about the boats they own today or wish to buy tomorrow...............what a job!
