Oli’s passion for boats and boating started at a young age, from family canal boat holidays to national dinghy racing with the navy cadets.
Before studying at University, he spent a year sailing as delivery crew. Extensively cruising the South Coast of the UK, Eastern Atlantic coastlines, and Trans-Atlantic to the Caribbean, Oli covered some 7,000 nautical miles. He is still keen yacht racing crew, racing in the Solent and around the South Coast.
Oli studied Yacht Manufacture and Surveying (BSc Hons) at Southampton Solent University. He focussed his studies on hull design and sea-keeping through systematic tank testing and formulaic evaluation of custom built hull forms.
Post University, Oli took up a position at a renowned all-service boatyard near Exeter, delivering a wide range of repair, service and maintenance work on a variety of yachts and motorboats. The final three years here were as yard manager, overseeing the repairs department and storage facility.
Oli is also an active member of the International Institute of Marine Surveyors, regularly attending training days, meetings and seminars.
