Jason Fletcher – President
Jason was born and raised on Grenada and his love of boating started when he participated in sailing programs run by Grenada Yacht Club. After school he bought himself a small fishing boat and started fishing commercially which led him into selling fish then building and buying commercial fishing trawlers. He found himself selling fuel and offering general services to visiting yachts, all the while running his own fleet of fishing boats. After a few deals on marine properties fell through, he found a perfect spot in St. Davids and along with some close friends and family members he set up Grenada Marine in 1998. Now Grenada Marine is one of the leading boatyards in Grenada offering full services to visiting yachts. He is renowned for his professionalism and his love of sailing and fishing.
