Meet the Herley boat builder Team

After years of frustration buying, building and using boats that had the final details missing, the use of cheap quality materials, the collection of pools of water in unnecessary places and awkward helm positions, Sean Kelly and Nick Herd decided to build their own.

Sean is an ex-navy engineer who turned to commercial operations building his own company to service any and all work on the water. Nick is a boatbuilder who built vessels from 4m through to 50m superyachts and then turned to engineering and boat design. Together they have created the Herley style and performance.

Herley Boats has now grown from its original small crew in 2016 to a team that covers all respects of the build process, fabricators through to woodworkers and electrical engineers, all of who have a passion for the product they deliver.
