Having spent his early years sailing all manner of boats from small dinghies to cruising yachts, it was an obvious choice for Robin to attend Falmouth Marine School and study Yacht Design & Construction. This grounded education led to a career in the marine industry spanning over thirty years and encompassing yacht delivery, charter, yacht management and maintenance, corporate sailing and boat yard management.
Rozel Marine was originally established in 1995, when its principal activity was yacht management, maintenance and charter. The business diversified and grew to become a leading provider of corporate sailing events.
In 2009 the events business was sold, and Robin returned to his roots in the marine industry as a refit manager at a leading south coast boatyard. This role included managing extensive refit and repair work on a wide variety of craft as well as running the yards rigging department.
Having gained a Diploma in Yacht & Small Craft Surveying, Robin resurrected Rozel Marine in early 2017 to offer bespoke yacht surveys and consultancy as an independent marine surveyor to boat buyers and owners. Rozel Marine operates from Lymington across the Solent area and throughout the UK and Europe.
From our office in the yachting hub of Lymington we are ideally placed to offer a prompt response to all yacht survey enquires, whether locally or further afield.
Robin is an Accredited Member of the Yacht Designers and Surveyors Association (YDSA), the leading industry body for yacht surveyors. He also holds the RYA Yacht Master Ocean qualification, with Commercial Endorsement and has sailed many thousands of miles, on all manner of yachts, both cruising and racing, including six Atlantic crossings.
