Gareth Southcott

Gareth learnt to sail at a young age and has always had a love for the sea and the outdoors. Gareth joined the Royal Navy upon leaving school where he trained as an Operator Mechanic Mine Warfare enjoyng the seaman side role of the branch. This began his venture into RIBs working as a coxswain boarding a variety of vessels along the english coast. Gareth then went on to work at Seaham Harbour working on their vessels and and dock gates. Although a demanding job he thoroughly enjoyed it, particularly working as coxswain of the pilot cutter. Throughout all of this he realised the need of safety/workboat hire throughout the UK and so started NESB in 2010.
