Maritimo’s General Manager Operations Phil Candler said the wins by both Nathan and Jesse were well deserved and a credit to the two apprentices.

“The guys have done a great job and it is a credit to them personally and to our overall apprenticeship programme,” he said.

Candler said another two apprentices were nominated, Zoe DePryck, a second year Certificate 3 Cabinet Maker and Lachlan Sacco a first year Certificate 3 Marine Craft apprentice. Zoe won the First Year Cabinet Maker Apprentice Of The Year last year.

“To have four nominated and then get two wins is a fantastic result,” he said. “We put a great deal of time and effort into our training and mentoring initiatives and the apprentices have embraced it enthusiastically.”

“It is fantastic to see them recognised for their work and efforts and even though Zoe and Lachlan did not win this year just being nominateD is a feat in itself. Jesse and Nathan are to be congratulated and especially for Nathan it is a brilliant way for him to cap off finishing his apprenticeship.’

Maritimo currently has 12 apprentices completing their trades and the company employs approximately 300 staff and contractors and ships its luxury motor yachts around the globe.

Our Maritimo experience is certainly wrapped up in the new M75 . We will go further afield as there is heaps of fuel on board, and the modern aesthetic is wonderful. We love what Maritimo has done with all of the spaces on board.
