Ian Coutts


I am an outgoing and friendly individual who is keen to develop my knowledge and skills in the yachting industry. Having grown up living close to the ocean I have always enjoyed water activities such as leisure boating and fishing. In my younger years I was also a a member of the local yacht club, sailing P-class yachts. 

I consider myself a motivated, reliable and hard working employee with a 'can-do' attitude who always gives 110% to the task at hand. I have strong communication skills and am able to develop an easy rapport and build positive relationships with clients and colleagues alike.


Keeping fit through regularly working out at the gym, snowboarding, playing rugby and golf.
