Anthony was introduced to sailing relatively late, with his interest in boating originating from family holidays on the Norfolk Broads. This ignited a passion which led him to study naval architecture -  thus saving him from a career as a terrible musician.

After graduating from Strathclyde University, and serving several years as a Class surveyor, Anthony joined the Cayman Islands Shipping Registry in 2001. This propelled him into the world of luxury yachting and he's not looked back since.

In 2006, Anthony decided that there was more to life than being a civil servant, and moved back to the private sector to establish Manta. He's passionate about Manta flourishing, and is fully committed to providing a first class service to clients.

Currently Anthony is deeply involved with the operation, technical management, refitting and construction of several very large yachts, and thrives on working closely with their owners and crews.

A keen cyclist, Anthony can often be found in the hills of the Peak District when he is not working.
