SIMON CADDY is a well-known sailing enthusiast with useful local knowledge, sailing these waters since childhood. After a background as an engineer officer in the Merchant Navy, commercial fishing and working in local boat yards he started the marine engineering business in 1978.
In the past the business also included a yacht brokerage, an agency for New Bridge Boats and Webasto diesel heaters.
This has given him a wide range of experience in the industry often enabling help to be given in selecting suitable local skills to successfully complete both small and often large projects.
The pleasure side of the industry forms the mainstay of the business but some commercial work is also undertaken.
All types of marine engines and equipment are worked on. The flexibility of the business has led to not only handling the latest in marine technology but also much older engines often considered uneconomical for repair by larger firms.
Over the years many unusual projects have been worked on including the renovation of a Dunkirk ‘Little Ship’ and a Chines Junk.
Having always supplied various makes of marine engines back in 1997 Simon became very impressed with the excellent range of Beta Marine engines and was appointed the local dealer. The dealer ship has steadily grown alongside BETA’S success ever since.
The business philosophy has always been to remain focused enough to maintain the personal high standard of service that many customers, over the years, have appreciated.
