Who are they?
Gym Marine was founded by Edward Thomas in 2014 after he spent 5 years at sea as superyacht crew. The company is a specialist designer of gym and spa areas for Superyachts and prime residential properties. Based in the UK and The Netherlands, the company has grown rapidly over the past few years and has a 6 full-time employees.
I am excited to be a part of such a strong initiative that encourages new conversations and is a positive investment in the future of our industry and wider society.
Assigned Senior Sponsor
Edward began his career onboard Superyachts working for some of the world’s most discerning clients, finding health & fitness to be a common passion amongst all of them. Starting Gym Marine at 24 has been his proudest achievement yet, and today we are striving to become world leaders in our field.
His favourite piece of gym equipment has got to be either the Technogym Kinesis or our new GM Custom Dumbbells!
