Chris King has retired and King Marine Ltd has closed for further business.

Chris has thoroughly enjoyed his 45 years within the commercial marine business. He will miss the banter and many friends he has gained over the years. He hopes that others that have met him, been trained by him, worked for him and crewd for him will all get as much fun, wonderful memories and genuine stisfaction out of their careers.
