Iain was born in Glasgow, Scotland and grew up in a small village called Bridge of Weir. His father was a gifted hand’s on engineer who inspired Iain from day one, teaching him the intricacies of all things mechanically and electrically operated. From a young age Iain and the family spent most of the summer holidays cruising the West Coast of Scotland on small sailing yachts. He then spent 3 years studying mechanical engineering at Dundee University before deciding that the practical aspect and daily working environment of yacht engineering was to be far more suited to him. Iain has now been a Chief Engineer for over 9 years and during this time has gained valuable experience on a variety of sized vessels, both power & sail. Although Iain has spent the majority of his yachting career in the Mediterranean, he has also spent two seasons extensively cruising the Caribbean and even spent some time as far North as Nova Scotia. He currently holds his Chief Engineers Y3 qualification and with his experience and studies he will certainly ensure your time on board runs smoothly at all times.
