Our Team

Kingsley Parker
KNP Marine Proprietor

I have lived on the Gold Coast all my life and have been in the Marine and Tourism industry for 40 years. I am a water Ski instructor and successfully ran a family owned business teaching water skiing and jetski since I was 15 years old. I also operated a Family owned Maritime Drivers Licence School for 25 years and independently for the past 17 years. During the past 6 years I have operated the Boat Safe Approved Training Facility and have successfully helped many customers get their Boat Licence. My experience also covers the sales of motors, boats and jetskis for the past 25 years. I have a wealth of knowledge when it involves anything to do with boats, motors and jetskis and love to pass this knowledge on to our customers to help with their choice of boat or motor.

Brett Overs
KNP Marine Proprietor

I have lived on the Gold Coast since 1978 and have been successful in business on the Gold Coast for the past 18 years. My business experience covers customer service and support through a variety of businesses being: Mobile Phones, Transport Industry, Boat Building (Rapid Sports Boats). My passion is for boating and water sports and I have finally found myself fully involved in the Marine Industry which is something that I love. I have been involved with boats and jetskis for 25 years so it is great that I am able to help our customers fill their lives with the wonderful pastime of boating. I have had a variety of boats from tinnies to speedboats to cruisers and have a wealth of knowledge to share with our customers. I am a family man and my wife and young daughter also share my passion for boating which gives us many happy experiences as a family.

Michael Paddison
Accredited Marine Licence Instructor

I have lived on the Gold Coast all my life and spend all of my time on the water. I joined the Navy when I left school and my interest with the ‘water’ stayed with me. I have had several boats and currently own a jetski on which I love to ride in the surf. I skipper gondolas during the week nights and have been involved with many aspects within the Marine Industry. I have been an accredited Boat Licence Instructor for 6 years and have over tested over 5000 Boat Licences. I have a great knowledge of the local waterways and share this with others.
