Our History

Pacific Quay Powerboats was started in 2016 by owner John Hillis and his wife Merrell. John had a vision and that became a reality.

Fast forward two years and he's joined by a small yet dedicated team of experienced and qualified team members who enjoy spending their time on the water.

The faces behind the name...

John and Merrell Hillis



John and his wife Merrell.

When it's raining John "arghs" like a pirate. We find it completely normal, even if he doesn't have a parrot or wear an eye patch.

John is a Commercially Endorsed Powerboat Skipper and Instructor.




When he's not being lead footed and burning through the boat's fuel Khalid is a Digital Marketing Consultant.

He's the best looking member of staff and funnily enough also manages the website.

Khalid is a Commercially Endorsed Powerboat Skipper and Yachtmaster.
