I have owned a pleasure craft since 2004 and purchased my first Broom in 2015 when I also joined the BOC. My previous experience on the water prior to owning a pleasure craft was as a member of the crew of the commercial tanker barge Humber Pride. I am a mechanical engineer and currently hold the position of Operations manager at Drax Power Station. I try and spend as much time as possible actively cruising around the waters of the Central Region and beyond when the opportunity arises, my home base is at the Goole Boathouse Marina.
The Central Region covers the East Coast, from Berwick to Lincolnshire, along with the rivers Humber, Trent and Yorkshire Ouse. Although the majority of our members are based in York, Goole and Newark, we also have some in Lincoln, on the Humber and in Newcastle.
Although social events are usually based around the three main centres we will always consider other opportunities as they come along.
So, if you own a Broom boat and are moored or considering moving here then please contact me.
