Having recently launched its own range of superyacht deck equipment, Shipyard Supply Co (SSCo) continues to show strong growth and has welcomed Adam Hunkin as a project assistant.

Adam has joined SSCo to focus on the superyacht procurement and sales side of the business, as well as providing admin support. With the size of superyachts on the rise, SSCo has seen an increase in demand for owners and crew requiring a one-stop-shop for all deck equipment.

Luke Porter, SSCo commercial manager, said: “We are very excited to welcome Adam to the team. He has a wealth of hands-on superyacht experience having worked on a number of significant yachts as a deckhand. The growth of the company and expanding order book led us to look for an addition to our team who will fit in with our ethos of innovation and exceptional customer service. We were fortunate that we were able to find someone of Adam’s caliber and experience to fulfill this role. I’m confident that he will play a key part in providing and implementing high quality solutions for our clients.”

Luke continued: “Procurement items can be anything from cameras to inflatables or deck showers.  They form part of the equipment that helps deliver a superyacht experience for guests, but they are time consuming for crew to organise.  Adam will focus on supporting yachts at launch or during refit with these items to help take the time and stress out of the process for crew members.”
