Like Tony, Duncan was trained in the aeronautical industry. He was employed as an avionics engineer with a commercial airline in the UK for seven years. He then changed tack and took up professional sailing onboard a variety of large yachts, working as engineer/captain in places as far afield as the Arctic Circle, Mediterranean and the Caribbean.
Duncan's extensive ocean-going experience has been of great value to the company. Duncan is responsible for the day-to-day operations of Fleming Yachts including the financial management of the company and the design of the electrical systems throughout the Fleming range. He spends much of his time at the Tung Hwa factory in Taiwan but travels extensively to boats shows and Fleming dealers worldwide. His personal contact with Fleming owners provides feedback to the factory where "The Ultimate Cruising Yacht" continues to evolve utilizing today's latest technology.
