About Calvin Morris
I joined the Boatshed London team in February 2022.
I've always been connected with the water, having grown up by the sea on the South Coast and later living many years by the Thames in Brentford. In what seems like a previous life now, I worked in the fashion industry as a talent agent, but I knew I couldn't do this forever. I decided on a change of direction, I bought a boat, moved on and never looked back. I'm passionate about the waterways and boating and I have gained many skills and qualifications in my years afloat.
What did you do before working with Boatshed?
As well as working with Boatshed I also have a boat moving business, called The Boat Movers. I'm qualified and insured to move boats on the inland tidal and non-tidal waterways. Previous to that I worked for 20 years in fashion as a talent agent, managing many high profile people, including Kate Moss for many years.
What do you enjoy most about working with Boatshed?
I love meeting new people, exploring different boats and the freedom.
Are you a motorboater or a sailor?
I'm a motorboater and live onboard a wide beam canal boat based in London.
What is your most memorable boating experience?
I have so many! I've spent many months travelling on my own boat, but some of the sunsets over Marsworth were just stunning.
