Dan was destined for the marine industry from birth. He was born in England’s historic naval city of Portsmouth. His father was in the merchant navy and his grandfather was a navy gunner. From university he qualified as a mechanical engineer and worked for a number of marine companies before emigrating to Australia.
Dan joined Riviera as a mechanical design engineer in early 2004 and now oversees the team that works on detail design of every Riviera model. His great enjoyment is in working in an organisation in which every motor yacht is developed from concept and design to the finished product.
He is driven by a love for Riviera’s motor yachts, for his team, for the variety of work they undertake and for the challenges of constant improvement in every new motor yacht.
