Thornham Marina Would Like To Welcome Their Latest Tenant S. Hulme & Sons Traditional Shipwrights. Steve will be moving into Unit A at the beginning of May and will be doing boat repairs and offering a boat management service. Thornham Marina are excited about welcoming him into our extended family and wish him all the best. Below is a short biography about him, and his previous work experience.
Steve has been working as a traditional shipwright for the past 16 years. In 1995, Steve graduated from the International Boatbuilding Training College, Lowestoft, with a distinction in Traditional Boatbuilding.
From there, Steve joined Sealine International as a boat fitter working on the production of luxury yachts. In 1997, Steve joined Premier Yachts, Hayling Island as a junior Boatbuilder where he expanded his experience working on 30 – 48ft bespoke steel yachts. Steve followed this with a gap year, travelling around the world with a fellow Boatbuilder and gained valuable skills working for Port Douglas Shipwrights, Australia.
In 2000, Steve went back to education, where in 2003, he graduated with a Bsc Honours degree in Sports Science and Business Management from Manchester University. He supplemented his studies working for Daniels and Thomas Cabinet Makers, producing furniture for Royal Dalton.
Steve decided an office job was not for him! So in 2003 he returned to the world of boatbuilding on the south coast, as a self-employed Boatbuilder. Steve has subcontract for European Yacht Services, Northney Marina, Nick Gates and Co, Thornham and Emsworth Marina and E. Dridge Boatbuilders, Hayling Island.
From the age of 14, hockey played a major part in Steve’s life (on and off the pitch!) he has been lucky enough to play hockey at international level, and up until four years ago was still playing for Havant Hockey Club 1st team in the national league.
Steve is family orientated; he is married to Sheena, has two boisterous sons, Alex (5) and Sam (2.5) and Bentley the adopted family dog. With his family in mind, Steve has very recently set up his own company, S. Hulme & Sons Traditional Shipwrights, and is looking forward to a long and successful relationship with the loyal and future customers of Thornham Marina.
A big thank you to Jeanette, Courtney Jane, Dave and Cliff, for their help and support with this exciting new venture.
A new website and email contact to follow soon.
Have a good season from S. Hulme & Sons Traditional Shipwrights.
