Wright Maritime hires

ADVERTISEMENT

Wright Maritime Group has added Peter Southgate to its executive team.

 

Southgate has specialized in yachts and passenger ships since joining Lloyds Register in the late 1990s. Developing his yacht experience with the Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA), he then joined the Cayman Islands Shipping Registry in 2003 to eventually become a deputy director, giving him experience in the audit and survey of yachts.

 

He has been involved in the development of the Large Yacht Code and played a lead role in the development of the Red Ensign Group Passenger Yacht Code, the so-called PYC. Already a naval architect and marine surveyor, he most recently earned his UK law degree.

 

“After the first half of my career as a naval architect and shipbuilder; with 16 of those years as a regulator, I am excited by the opportunity to utilize that experience in large yacht construction and operations from a user standpoint,” he said in a statement.
