I have known, and worked collaboratively, with Phil Salthouse since 1992, firstly when he managed Salthouse Boatbuilders, Greenhithe, and more recently in his marine consultancy business.
I have marketed and sold internationally several Salthouse built vessels in the 60ft to 80ft range, both power and sail. These build projects had been personally managed by Phil and the vessels were built with the integrity and finish quality that I would call “Superyacht Standard”.
I would use this same term to describe Phil’s approach to any marine project, and his personal ethos as “Superyacht Standard”.
More recently my work with Phil has involved survey and refit projects where his immense experience in both wood and composite materials and his problem solving abilities, have proved invaluable to my company and the boat owner.
I know these skills, along with Phil’s personal integrity and his ability to communicate, would be extremely beneficial to an owner undertaking a new vessel build or major refit project.
