THE TEAM

At the helm – John Gamlin and Allan Bridge.
Vesseltec is driven by two marine industry professionals with a depth of experience and knowledge so you can be comfortable that your pride and joy is in safe hands.

John Gamlin

A former professional skipper, instructor, yachtmaster and rigger, John has a wealth of experience not only locally in Australia and New Zealand, but the Mediterranean, the Caribbean and even Antarctica! Project management of large vessel refurbishments means John understands what is involved in the systems and facilities that brings a boat together. With an eye for detail and a calm, knowledgeable demeanour you can rest easy knowing John is at the helm.

Allan Bridge

Having spent more than 20 years working across a range of marine activities from commercial skippering and charter operations, commissioning of new vessels, along with the management and maintenance of a diverse range of European boats.  A deep understanding of the manufacturing process and extensive experience out on the water, be it delivering vessels up the coast or racing to Hobart, ensures that Allan understands what is required to keep a boat ship shape. With an addiction to the water, on days off you’ll find Allan in, on or close by to the ocean!

Nathan Sanderson

As a Master 35 Captain with extensive experience across a broad field of maritime industries, Nathan has a great deal of knowledge that is sure to be an asset to the team. Since a young age, saltwater has been in his blood, starting his career crewing on large superyachts that travelled all around the world. Since returning home he has run, managed, taught and even set up an online platform for charter and private boats. This extensive experience gives Nathan a well-rounded approach in managing projects, knowing what’s involved to get the job done and ensuring our clients are happy. 

Sue Grindrod

In addition to her infectious laugh, Sue brings more than 30 years accounts experience to the team. Having worked initially in the mining industry and then for over 20 years in the exacting world of design and advertising, Sue is organised, calm and accurate. Key attributes are the ability to multitask and responsive time management.

Sue is perfectly suited to the high activity levels of the business, remaining unflappable and focused, while taking on the complex accounting and admin tasks with confidence.
