Close to 50 years ago Maxwell Marine International was incorporated as a private company in Auckland, New-Zealand under the leadership of a very passionate team and here we are many thousands of tacks/gybes/regattas later and the passion remains throughout our engineers, artisans and sailors who eat, sleep and breath the Maxwell product, one of those talented people is Thijs Boegheim who represents the company and it’s now Dutch owners, in the EMEA region.

Incidentally Thijs is also a speed freak, whether on snow skis, windsurfing or on the road where he can often be seen flying past on his motorbike. The addition of a young family has slowed him down a little however what hasn’t changed is the salt water flowing strong through his veins. As a young one Thijs did spend a lot of time on [and in] the water. After Thijs graduated he has been in and around the marine industry for over 12 years,   initially on the service side and after several positions took the challenging role he is in now.

The same drive that keeps Thijs moving faster (literally) than most, is what helps get the anchoring solutions our clients require. Working on and around the quality of boats we work with is a privilege and also a responsibility taken very seriously.
