Justin Thorpe, Manager, has widespread experience in the marine industry from the ground up. He started his career as a shipwright apprentice when he moved to the Gold Coast to pursue his dream of working in the luxury boat building industry.
Spence immediately landed a job at Maritimo, helping to build one of the early 60-foot Luxury Motor Yachts, and progressing from there to working in quality control and client care. His time at Maritimo gave him invaluable experience and an insight into what makes a boat stand out from the crowd. He also gained the opportunity to meet many passionate boaties and boat owners and hear firsthand their experiences on the water. Spence has a deep and sophisticated knowledge of motorboats across the range.
His knowledge and expertise on all things maritime are certainly a great asset, and very much appreciated by his long list of clients, many of whom are repeat customers.
