Person Behind the Face – Chris Clayton

Chris Clayton, Seaward Boat Co

How I got into this industry…I went to Bucklers Hard Boat Builders to help out for a few weeks whilst they had a change of MD. That was 32 years ago and I’m still waiting for a permanent contract.

Best advice I’ve ever received…my father said treat others the way you would like to be treated yourself. Common sense but sound advice. If you look after people, then they will look after you (mostly).

One thing the industry needs less of is…old people like me! We need to reinvigorate the marine industry with a new army of youth.
