Meet the TeamWe know that a lot of our visitors think that we have a nice easy job in the summer, playing on boats and all that, then take the whole winter off - sadly this is not the case! To keep the fleet in tip top condition we have a dedicated team who look after all aspects of maintaining the hire fleet, from the rudder, shaft and engine right through to making sure the varnishing, curtains and cushions are all in good order. We charter the boats from April to October and when the boats are not out on hire there is plenty of work to be done keeping the team busy for the rest of the year.
We fit out the new vessels on the fleet over the winter period too. The first hull will usually arrive in September / October time and take approximately 3 - 4 months to complete, depending on the size of the vessel.
In the booking office we take the majority of our reservations between December and March, so there is no down time there either.
When Bethany is not working, apart from being a busy mum or looking after her 2 kittens, she can usually be spotted dancing, partying in general and is a big fan of Rock Ness so you'll never find her near work when that's on!
Derek is a dedicated member of the team; however on the rare exception that he's not, he is a keen cyclist, skier as well as a bit of a wine boffin.
Bill likes keeping himself fit and will run the occasional 10 K among other things, e.g. gardening and of course a bit of DIY!
All the engineering and technical fitting-out on the new boats is completed by Gordie, and of course, it works very well - all thanks to Gord.
He is usually tinkering away with cars when he's not on duty and he's a keen football fan.
Andy is a country guy at heart and loves spending his spare time with his working spaniel and clay pidgeon shooting.
When not working Isobel is a doting Grandmother of her lovely 2 grandchildren and when she has the time, which is not often, loves crafts.
They are very busy all of the time and require several months notice to secure them. When they're not fitting out boats and building houses they are mad, keen sports enthusiasts and you'll find them kite surfing, cycling or any other 'extreme' sport that takes their fancy.
