WHO WE ARE
Born in the UK and educated as an Engineer at the University of Cambridge, Bob Hathaway had a highly successful early career in local government enabling a sabbatical year at age 37. On his return from cruising in the Mediterranean he joined the marine industry as Technical and Operations Director of a yacht building and repair company operating a small boatyard near Southampton, UK. After sailing to Saint Lucia in 2001 and buying land in Marigot Bay, Bob’s plans for retirement were thwarted by an opportunity to design and build a solar–powered catamaran for the Bay, the first of its kind in the Caribbean. This was followed by the establishment of The Marina at Marigot Bay which he managed from its creation in 2006 until 2014. You can read Bob's CV here.
The Marina was and is a unique business taking full advantage of the setting, the facilities and the community of Marigot Bay. A motivated, carefully recruited and trained team of Lucian hospitality professionals provided the highest possible standards of customer service at every level, professional, technical and personal. As the reputation of the business grew it attracted more and more large motor and sailing yachts to Saint Lucia to enjoy the wonderful attractions of the country and enhanced the growth of the yachting industry. The Marina maintained its roots in the Marigot Bay community regenerating local employment in this historic yachting community, the home of Walter Boudreau and his fleet of schooners.
