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.”

Lynne has been Waterside Marine Sales’ Administrative Assistant for 10 years, she has worked in the Broads holidays industry since 1988, having carried out most roles associated with boating holidays, booking holidays on the phone, greeting the customers on arrival and helping them with enjoying their holiday on the Beautiful Norfolk Broads. Lynne has also administrated Herbert Woods Private Marina since 2002 “When Waterside Marine Sales became part of the Herbert Woods family in 2010, this seemed the perfect time to combine the private moorings and sales administrative roles, meeting and getting to know the private boat owners, is interesting and fun, no two days are alike”.
