David is a lifelong sailor, having grown up in and around yachts on the south coast of England. He made his first significant offshore voyage at the age of sixteen, sailing from the west coast of England to Lisbon. This cemented his love for the sea.
Since then, he has owned several yachts, all of which have shared the same design philosophy of Kraken Yachts. He has cruised the Mediterranean, Atlantic and Caribbean Islands extensively.
David initially approached Kraken as a potential client but was so impressed with the product, that after lengthy discussions with Dick Beaumont, he made the decision to join the Kraken team as Sales Director at the beginning of 2022.
David brings with him over 30 years of sales and marketing experience in a variety of fields and is excited to be involved in the ongoing success and growth of the Kraken brand.
