In 2014 Captain Nicholas Sloane teamed up with Kevin Kelly of Xtreme Projects and the search began in earnest for solutions with the ultimate in tailored design, engineering and cost effective vessels as a starting point. Kevin had been dealing with the Port Elizabeth-based aluminium boat yard Legacy Marine on several projects in recent years and the two entrepreneurs set the wheels in motion to find the ideal manufacture and supply partner on the project. From the very first engagement – the synergies and common ground were evident and the rest as they say in the classics – is history.
Sloane Marine, due to its founding members' time availability, has been incorporated into the Legacy Marine Group, which continues under the mentorship of Nick to provide opportunities and products to Marine operators with experience. We are equally as passionate about assisting the transformation of the industry in line with our Equity charter.
