A life on and in the water was inevitable for me as we grew up surfing, diving, spearfishing, wakeboarding, windsurfing, sailing and doing just about every other type of watersport activity possible.
My roots in the industry came from a per-chance opportunity to run a surf charter boat in Indonesia in the late 90’s. Looking back now I can comfortably say this was my first step into life at sea as a professional mariner.
Thankfully over the past 18 years I have worked with many great owners, captains and crew and have traveled many places and established strong relationships with industry peers and colleagues.
Exploring new technologies for a new build project is a strong focus for me and we hope that Oceans4 Projects will deliver your dreams.
We look forward to working with you.
My name is William Bullen, I am a Marine Engineer having worked in the industry for the past 18 years.
I have extensive experience in marine engineering, IT and programming which give me a unique aproch to design and implementation of marine systems.
I have a keen interest in all things engineering and the sea, my love for the ocean has defined my life.
My goals in ship building are to provide the client with a complete management system of the build process that provides a detailed history of the construction and fit out process.
This provides an interface to all involved parties to communicate and share ideas and information.
All my life I have been involved with yachts, with the help of my parents for bringing me up on a sailing boat from a very early age, to sailing and racing all over the world.
In 1981 I started my boatbuilding apprenticeship in Australia, spending the next 8 years building, restoring boats, studying design & Naval Architecture.
I joined my first large yacht in 1989, spending the next 30 years & 320,000 nm traveling the world and building my experience as an Officer and later as a Captain.
I have been given the opportunity to build yachts for the owners giving them as much help in making sure they are getting the yacht of the dreams whilst working with the best designers and shipyards in the world.
Researching new technologies to implement into the build, we at Oceans4 look forward to our next project.
