About Kathy Munnings
Hello I'm Kathy and I've been working with Boatshed Norfolk for a while now. I live on the Norfolk Broads which is a fantastic place to sell boats as we get a wonderful variety of inland and coastal cruisers and both motor and sailing boats.
I spent a lot of my childhood growing up on the broads and have many treasured memories of it - including being taught to sail by my grandad in our little Swallows and Amazons style dinghy on Salhouse Broad.
I have always been passionate about boats of all shapes and sizes. I saved up and bought my first boat at the age of 20, a little 22 foot Weston 670 who over the years I have stripped down and refitted inside and out and I still take her out to watch the sunset over the broads pretty much every evening. Since then I've had a few more boats including a 42ft Alphacraft I'm currently doing up.
Since moving to the broads in 2016 I have had a few jobs working in the marine industry, collecting, delivering and chauffeuring boats. In addition to selling boats I also do some work on the repair/maintenance side of things - its impossible to ever be bored on the broads with a seemingly endless supply of boats that need sanding, polishing and anifouling etc. !
I also enjoy cruising offshore on the Norfolk coast and am currently working towards getting my RYA qualifications so I can go on adventures even further afield. Then all I will need is another boat - thankfully there's no shortage of those in Norfolk!
