Team

Entrepreneurs drive change. They see opportunities and they take risks.

With limited support for startups in this space, it is not easy to launch and scale new products and services.

Our team can see huge potential for ambitious entrepreneurs to improve efficiency, generate job opportunities and ultimately change the leisure marine and yachting industries for the better.
