Boatshed North Wales is Expanding
Boatshed North Wales, International Yacht Brokers are delighted to announce a new team member, Andy Topham. It’s great to welcome Andy, as Boatshed North Wales is now an established brand and is rapidly expanding.
Andy has already sold his first boat, 24 hours after listing it!
"The Boatshed system really works, its encouraging that USED boats are selling in this current climate and its very exciting to sell one so quickly." says Andy
Andy has had 30 years of playing and working with boats in North Wales.
His early years consisted of dinghy sailing at various clubs and RYA courses. He then moved up to racing keel boats over 12 year period . For 6 of those later years he ran a 40ft racing yacht which was campaigned at most major Offshore / Race weeks in the U.K.
Towards the end of this time he went to study Yacht Design and engineering at Falmouth.
This also enabled him to build up his many RYA certificates for the next adventure which was the ARC race on a stripped out racer. Once in the St.Lucia, Andy met a guy from Conwy of all places and ended up running his cruising yacht in the Caribbean for over 2 years.
Whilst on the boat he met his wife who was in holiday. She decided to not take her new job back in the U.K and instead she stayed onboard and soon learnt the way of life onboard a boat.
After this great time cruising the Islands they where offered a job running a lovely 45ft Cat at Moorings Crewed Yacht division in the BVI. This was a great experience for them both as a Skipper and Chef team. From there on they went to run a 70ft Powerboat again in the BVI with again a busy charter schedule with his wife .
From 2004 they returned to Wales and set up Topline Yacht Charters offering crewed charter / bareboat across the world but specialising in the Caribbean. Andy is also a chief instructor at Abersoch Sailing school teaching power and sail .
Andy is looking forward to getting stuck into this great opportunity of working with Boatshed North Wales.
