Paul Diffin - Boatshed Lancashire
Welcome to Boatshed Lancashire
I was brought up in West Africa and so I have been messing around on boats since I was about 5years old at The Lagos Yacht Club. In those early days my father used to build his own motorboats and over the years I have never been too far away from boats whether waterskiing, dinghy sailing, yachting or powerboating.
I first came across Boatshed back in 2007 when I had my own business buying and selling boats,mainly Ribs and I was also involved in Rib manufacture and re-tubing. I immediately saw the benefits of the system and the growing brand and even considered trying to replicate the system but soon realised I would need very deep pockets for the marketing alone in order to match the international reach of the Boatshed brand so eventually we decided to but Boatshed Lancashire.
