Steve Thomas “the tactician” has seen business go from strength to strength since the doors first opened as Optimum Marine & Shipbrokers at Nelson Marina. Steve’s Dad, Don Thomas, launched the business in 1993. With Don’s passing in 2013, Steve has now taken the reins. He likes to offer plenty of free information to help people make the best decisions when buying or selling boats. Steve trained in marine engineering after leaving school, before moving on to a career in theatre lighting. He still enjoys this as a hobby, along with cruising local waters in his classic launch “Seabird”.
