The Little Ship Company - Father and son 10 years on

Having started in the aircraft industry as an apprentice engineer in the mid seventies, the progression to sailboats was natural. Arriving in the Caribbean in 1981 for the first time, I was hooked on the beauty and the lifestyle. It took me more than 10 years back home to afford and rebuild my first yacht, which, after having sailed across from Africa in the early nineties,has been our permanent home.After chartering and being involved in almost all the aspects of the marine industry for well over twenty years, we now have a family so don't do charters anymore.... we still have the boat though!
The progression from captaining charter boats through project managing refits once we had a family and then running a charter base followed in quick succession. Buying and selling boats for our own account followed and then putting together willing buyers and sellers in a formal brokerage environment were the next logical steps. The brokerage has grown over the last decade through dedicated attention to detail and enthusiastic referrals from our many happy clients... who have all become friends. We offer a one stop shop for all your marine requirements. We will help you buy and even refit your dream machine. Had enough and time to move on? We provide a sensitive and balanced service to help her find a new home.
