Chris hangs up his oily's after 40 years

Chris Tyrrell

08 April 2016

After 40 years of loyal service, Head Engineer & Bosun Chris Tyrrell has hung up his oily's for the last time.

Chris has been ever-present at Lymington Yacht Haven since the marina first opened in the 1970's. His broad skill range, boat handling abilities and general expertise over the years has made him a pivotal part of the marina's day-to-day operations.

Chris' knowledge and daily contributions to the marina will be hugely missed but he has, most certainly, earned his retirement!

All the team at Lymington Yacht Haven and Yacht Havens Group Ltd wish Chris a happy retirement and thank him for his loyalty and dedication over the past 40 years!
