David has been our Chandlery manager for 7 years and has the busy task of ensuring all the essentials and boating equipment you need are fully stocked each week. He also runs the Fuel Pontoon as well as overseeing the Coffee Corner. If you even need any advice on lifejackets, lines, fenders or other marine hardware, then David is your best port of call.
Phil has worked at the marina for over 18 years and is a valuable source of knowledge for the bosun team. More at home on the water than on land, Phil is an experienced fisherman, and he may even give away the odd tip to our berth holders if asked nicely.
John has worked within the marina for over 30 years. He currently heads up our marina maintenance team.
Mark has been a key part of the Salterns team for over 15 years and has worked in many of our key business areas including the Southampton Golden Arrow Marine branch. Currently managing our Boatyard team it’s often Mark you’ll speak to for maintenance and engineering advice and booking in your boat for your winter and spring preparations, lift outs and re-launches.

With many years of experience working in boatyards on the South Coast, Jason is perfectly placed to lead his team of operators, providing a high class of work to many different types of boating craft.

Paul is a member of our Bosun team and has been with the Marina for 3 years. Being an experienced spearfisherman for many years, his local knowledge of the Harbour and surrounding waters is second to none. He also captures many of our amazing winter sunset photos.
Lucy joined the Marina team nearly 2 years ago after nearly 20 years in the marine industry with both Sunseeker London and superyacht brokerage, Dbeere Yachts. With a strong passion for watersports Lucy is not only brilliant at keeping the Marina organised but can often be found exploring the Harbour on her Paddleboard.
Nick is our Managing Director and heads up this family business which, along with his father and Chairman John Smith, has seen the growth and development of not only Salterns Marina but our other business areas at Offshore Performance, Salterns Brokerage and Golden Arrow Marine. A huge family man Nick cannot wait to start showing his young son more of the behind-the-scenes action as he grows older.
John is the Chairman of the whole of the Salterns Group and has seen the business grow since his father purchased the Marina in the 1970s. The Poole Harbour Yacht Club was expanded into the luxury Marina you see today, and John is extremely proud to be one of the few last family run Marinas in the whole of the UK.
