Our Professional team

David Paterson


With 17 years in the industry, David founded Redland City Marina after he blew the motor in his boat and couldn’t find a place to go that suited his needs.   Taking things into his own hands, David found the property that now holds the Marina. 

David has made Redland City Marina into one of the most well fit out Marinas in the South East of Qld.

Together with Ken, Lauren has built the chandlery up to be a one-stop-shop to make sure you don’t have to leave while you are working on your boat.
