Jacob Smith comes from a long history of seafaring men and has spent all his life living by and on the sea. He started handling boats from the age of 3 and quickly gained a working knowledge and understanding of the sea and all its complexities. He broke the family tradition of joining the Royal Navy and choose to go to sea at the age of 16, preferring to work in the offshore sector. He was quickly fast tracked and gained his Master’s certificate at the age of 19, gaining valuable experience working on the wind farms on crew transfer vessels and guard ships, standby North Sea. He quickly progressed to senior master and then to fleet supervisor gaining immense experience in all aspects of crew management, health and safety procedures and all areas in boat management whilst building long lasting contacts within the industry. Coming back from Salvage operations down the Mediterranean, Jacob was ready for a new challenge, he decided towage and salvage was where he wanted to commit and set up his own company. Aquatic Towage has completed its first very successful year and is going from strength to strength, building a great reputation for competitive pricing, excellent customer service and high levels of client satisfaction. Jacob has plans to continue to grow the company and is currently looking at securing another vessel to enable him more flexibility and possibilities.
