Ben came to DSB from a seafaring background. He holds an Officer of the Watch certificate from Warsash Maritime Academy and has worked on offshore support vessels, general cargo and passenger vessels. In 2017 Ben gained a Thames Boatmaster’s license and worked as Master on high speed craft in London.
Ben’s specialism at DSB Offshore is tugs, workboats and heavy-lift transport. He enjoys both the practical elements of these markets and the challenges they pose.
In 2018 Ben completed a BSc in Shipping Economics and became a Member of the Institute of Chartered Shipbrokers in 2020.
Ben is a keen rugby fan and will regularly be found at the Twickenham Stoop watching Harlequins play and, whenever possible, tries to get in some training with his local team.
