My love affair with boats and all things to do with the river started at the tender age of 4 (in the days of steam boats), living next to the river. After seven years as a civil engineer I joined Bray Marina in 1987 as Assistant Marina Manager and, by the time I became Marina & Sales Manager, I was running the busy brokerage operation and wanted to branch out on my own. This coincided with Marina Development Ltd selling off their boat sales operation in early 1992. And so, on 1st August 1992 we opened our doors and Bray Marine Sales (now TBS Boats Bray) was born, with a listing of three boats at a total sales value of £25,000!... my love affair with river and boats endures: I currently own a 1955 Italian lady - a varnished Mahogany speedboat.
