While Barbara is Steve's mum, she's also grown to become the head of the SBM boat sales family. And like any caring mum, she prides herself on the ability to satisfy any used boat query, no matter how trivial, with her prompt action and easy going manner. Her experience on marinas dates back to the 70's to a marina at Newport formerly known as John Kumms Marina, while her hands on experience racing a 38' Ted Hood design cruising yacht has exposed her to the competitive side of boating. Having known Steve since he was a baby, she knows his quirks and traits; when to kick in and help when needed, how to manage a highly ambitious and motivated individual. Barbara also has the innate knack of keeping the boat sales team in order, ensuring things are delivered on time, organising owner events with precision, and always keeping the customer satisfied.
