Will Houghton started his career with boating when he was 18 in 1994 when he started working for B.A.Peters in Chichester, which was the largest Fairline Boats distributor in the world. Will quickly worked his way through the ranks and was then appointed as a PDI quality control inspector for all new Fairline boats. After six years with the business, he then changed careers and worked in London in media accounts management for a further five years where he gained crucial account management skills. Will then return to boating and became the warranty manager for the whole of Australia Fairline fleet based in Sydney. In this role Will Learned how crucial it was to present the boats well at all times for new and used boats. Will then returned to the UK and saw a gap in the market on the Thames estuary for boat valet and maintenance. He then formed Boat Mate in 2005 and it has been going strong strength to strength ever since. Will is consistently finding ways of making Boat Mate better and insures the highest quality standards from his team at all times.
