The company is run by Mark Casson who has been in the marine industry since leaving school, when he joined Spencer Rigging to undertake a rigging apprenticeship.

‘I have grown up and worked around boats, having many years’ sailing experience, from racing dinghies, to Class 1 racing yachts and onto Maxi Class and three-masted yachts.’ – Mark Casson.

Cowes rib chartersMark has an Advanced Powerboat Certificate and a commercially endorsed Certificate of Competence.

Now Mark is concentrating on rib charter with marine and property care. The marine care can range from general cleaning, deck and topside cleaning to repairs, rigging, anti-fouling and varnishing.   Mark has now completed his seventh season of this type of work.

Customers keep on coming to Mark for many reasons, one being that he is always happy to discuss at length, the details, to ensure that he can personalise their charter or maintenance work to their specific needs. This can be a small one off job, or ongoing caretaker services.

Mark’s local Cowes and Solent knowledge allows him to get up close and personal on exciting yacht races to give clients a great experience.  He can show them many of the hidden gems of the Island, whilst navigating the local rivers, parts unable to be reached easily by land.
