About Robin Toozs-Hobson

I joined the Boatshed Martinique Team in February 2022

What did you do before working with Boatshed?
After many years in IT, I quit the UK in 2012 to go exploring. In 2013 I ended up in St Lucia and have been based out of there pretty much ever since but have travelled extensively, carrying out charters and deliveries. I am an RYA Yachtmaster Offshore with Commercial endorsements and I currently live on board my Fountaine Pajot called Bahia.

What attracted you to become part of the Boatshed team?
I love the the freedom it allows me, working in conjunction with Andy Topham in St Lucia and using my boat as an office.

Are you a motorboater or a sailor?
I'm predominantly a sailor but I have driven and delivered powerboats up to a Sunseeker 65 which was a nice change.

What is your most memorable boating experience?
There are so many to choose from from winning a national championship, sailing in the Endeavour, crossing the Atlantic (twice), sailing in the Arctic - the list goes on. After 50
years of racing, cruising, deliveries and charters, you might think I was obsessed with boats and water!
