Durell is a life long boater who has owned more boats than he cares to admit. This includes a welded aluminum boat while living on Piers Island, a boat access only island in the Gulf Islands for 16 years, commuting daily by boat from his own dock. He has also owned numerous twin engine boats, “sometimes at the same time” he lamented.
He is a CPA, CA who spent 25 years in public accounting, and later owned a BMW motorcycle dealership in Victoria, BC with his wife, Delia. Durell and Delia took a few years off to travel after the sale of the BMW dealership, and then moved to Kelowna to be closer to family. Durell reached out to Dockside Marine and started on the Service Desk! He then became the Company’s Chief Financial Officer in June 2016, and was recently made General Manager of the Company.
