About Rob Woodward
It was way back in the ’90s when I realised I had a passion for boating. First, it was waterskiing on Lake Windermere in the U.K., before buying a yacht and moving to North Wales. After that, R.Y.A. courses came along, and by the time I had finished my Yacht-Master Theory, I was hooked “as they say”. During many years of sailing in the Irish sea from North Wales, I logged thousands of miles. I became a Radar Instructor, Marine Diesel Instructor, earned a D.O.T. Certificate of competence as Yacht-Master, and finally became a Yacht-Master Instructor.
I become a shareholder of Network Yacht Brokers
A few years later, I bought the brokerage business in North Wales becoming a shareholder of Network Yacht Brokers Group. I ran this business for many years at the Conwy N.Y.B. office. In 2012 I became Chairman of the N.Y.B. Group. After 24 years in the U.K. marine industry, I decided to move and make Barcelona my home. I moved my business to Port Ginesta Marina, where I now work. From our office in Spain, I manage the Network Yacht Brokers Group. Our plan moving forward is to present the N.Y.B. business model to companies large and small in Europe. If you are interested in joining our Group, perhaps adding value to an existing business, do get in touch.
A short video about us at Menai Bridge in North Wales: it was my home for almost twenty years. It would be best if you took the time to visit, as this is one of the most challenging places to learn to sail a yacht in the world.
About Chiara Campagnaro
I finished my language studies in Italy some years ago. Driven by my desire to travel and find a company that I could join to stimulate my languages, marketing, and boating interests, I decided to look at relocating to Barcelona.
I have always loved this city; it’s an indisputable fact that the quality of life is exceptional in Catalonia. The climate, food, architecture of this amazing city, and its proximity to the sea and mountains make Barcelona a perfect place for me to thrive.
Fortune favours the brave (as the English say), on arrival I found and then quickly joined Network Yacht Brokers Barcelona. A new S.L. company being set up in Port Ginesta Marina. This is a fantastic place to work, situated close to the famous Carnival town of Sitges and just ten minutes from Barcelona Airport.
Being Italian from Venice, I now find myself driven by a boating passion. I often think back to how lucky I was when I made the hard decision to leave my home. My life now revolves around helping the company grow and supporting the wider Network Yacht Brokers Group. It is most certainly all about us.
