Nicky is our MD at Rightboat.com and has been cruising the waves of the marine industry since 1996. In fact, that was the first time she had ever stepped foot on a boat in her life! She has made up for it since however and jumps at any opportunity to get out on the water, whether it’s at a boat show in an exotic location, cruising the Caribbean on a catamaran or zipping around in her family’s 7.5 metre RIB.
Nicky is our digital media guru, and specialises in online classified marketplaces for buying and selling boats. Her personal and professional passion for boating is the driving force behind her success, and she loves nothing more than uniting the perfect boat with the perfect owner.

Mike has been in the yacht charter business since 2002. During Mike’s time in the industry he has developed a plethora of experience in this industry and has gained experience with yacht owners, managers, operators, crew, central agents, charter agents, sales brokers and most importantly clients over his time in the industry. Mike loves nothing more than a charter running successfully, with happy charter clients.
Mike is a passionate sailor and has been doing it for as long as he remembers. Although, Mike’s main love is racing. Mike regularly partakes in racing his RS800 dinghy at Itchenor sailing club to super yachts sailing out of Saint Tropez. Mike has also participated in several transatlantic crossings, with the last one in 2015 racing from Newport RI to Cowes in the Solent. Mike also enjoys family holidays aboard boats in the Mediterranean and Caribbean (his next one is Cuba), so is the perfect person to assist with booking a charter for yourself.
Don is our tech officer extraordinaire, and we don’t know what we would do without him! Whether it’s managing his team or getting his hands dirty doing the programming himself, Don loves nothing more than solving business problems using computing.
Don is a dedicated yachtsman, and has sailed to the Scilly Isles and cruised as far as South Brittany on his 36 foot yacht.which he also lives on. Talk about taking your work home with you! Like everyone at Rightboat.com, Don is passionate about the lifestyle boating offers and he embraces the ocean and great outdoors. SO much so that he once caught some mackerel whilst sailing and prepared them so quickly they were almost still flapping under the grill!
Luke joined Rightboat in January 2020 to help Mike launch the new charter division.
He uses his knowledge of yachts and passion for anything ocean going to ensure his clients have an amazing holiday.
Luke sailed dinghies as a boy but now prefers to spend his time in the water rather than on it, escaping to the south west to surf whenever he can.

As daughter to a boat captain she didn’t really get a choice about a childhood spent boating, and still to this day loves nothing more than bobbing about on the sea. There was also that one season spent working as stewardess on a luxury ice-breaker, but that’s a story for another time!
