Wanda CarlowRobert Cole
Commissioning Manager

Having spent 10 years as a part of Nordhavn’s Southeast Commissioning Crew, Rob Cole was appointed Head of East Coast Commissioning after the expansion and relocation of Sales and Service to North Palm Beach, Florida in the Fall of 2014.

Cole has worked on dozens of Nordhavns across the globe, servicing every model in the line (both 50- and 60-cycle boats), performed countless deliveries, and built long-term client relationships. Establishing himself as one of the pre-eminent and sought after Nordhavn technicians in the world today, Cole’s goal is to make Nordhavn Yachts Southeast the go-to service facility for all Nordhavns on the East Coast.

Prior to his start at PAE/Nordhavn, Cole served in the Marine Corps as a crew chief on UH-1N helicopters and was also a motorcycle tech at Harley Davidson. To this day, he still has an affinity for tinkering with Harley Davidsons which he does in his spare time, as well as riding dirt bikes and spending time with his wife and two young sons.

Yannick Thompson
Commissioning and After Sales
Yann grew up on the coast and has always loved being close to and on the sea! His career started in the Royal Marines before moving into the world of Telecommunications Engineering. Since then Yann has worked on many marine projects from Superyacht refits to renovating and restoring classic wooden boats. One of Yann’s talents is his carpentry skills and he has proven himself on several projects for current Nordhavn owners.
“You need to be on top of your game to match the quality of fit and finish that the yards produce for Nordhavn”, Yann notes. “But with the edition of our large workshop we can tackle even the most demanding projects”.

Yann enjoys windsurfing and surfing and is also an accomplished trombonist. He plays in several bands playing anything from classical to ska!
