Meet the Team

Alex Turner Alex Turner

Alex Turner

Alex is the newest member of the team and is still learning all aspects of the job. Growing up in Potter Heigham has given him exceptional knowledge of the Norfolk Broads and has helped with his boating knowledge too. He originally started his career working on the hire fleet with Herbert Woods, which has given him the all-important boat driving experience. Since then Alex has worked in the sales industry in different countries gaining invaluable experiences and developing new skills. “When the opportunity came up to work for Waterside, I saw this as an excellent chance to gain new knowledge and further my career. Whether you are selling or buying a boat, I aim to make the process smooth and stress-free, ensuring I go the extra mile to help clients.”
