Stingher Ribs

Stingher Ribs are conveniently based in the south coast’s boating capital of Southampton and home of the Southampton Boat show.

Edward Pedley of MRL first started importing Stingher Ribs into the UK from Italy in 2004. These are built and designed by Giuseppe Risolo with his son Andrea and they have been building Ribs since 1987. They are always striving to improve their Ribs and it shows with the strength and finish that they achieve.

In 2006 MRL moved to Southampton Dry Stack, which is the UK’s largest Dry Stack, with undercover storage, and direct frontage onto the River Itchen.

During that time MRL and Southampton Dry Stack have forged a close and trusted relationship, and in late 2020 both Edward Pedley of MRL and Bill Knight of Southampton Dry Stack decided to form a partnership selling the World renowned Stingher Ribs and together taking it on to new heights.

Meet the team

Bill Knight

Having obtained his yacht-master power and sail qualifications after university, he spent many years working in the Caribbean and France instructing. On his return to the UK he joined a large marina operator and ran 'Ocean Village', (marina and commercial estate) for them. After a trip to Florida where ‘Dry Stacking’ your boat is the norm, it seemed the ideal venture to set up for the benefit of Solent boat owners.

Mark White

(re)joins the team! Marks passion has always been boats and the ocean since owning a Fletcher Arrowsport while in his teens. Mark has worked in various sectors of the marine industry including as a powerboat instructor, managing a marina, ocean yacht deliveries, and spending time on Superyachts. Away from work Mark enjoys walks with his Labrador and getting out on the water when he can.

Stuart Jones

Stuart grew up on and around boats spending most weekend and school holidays sailing on the family boat. He spent his late teens working as delivery crew for various skippers traveling around Europe and the Caribbean even sailing across the Atlantic with only a few hiccups along the way!! He has spent the last 12 years working as a Personal Trainer in a local gym where he met Bill (I know - Bill in the Gym!). Stuart spends the summer weekends windsurfing and road biking and the wet winter months as muddy as possible in the forest cross country running.

Rob Mills

Joins us from Bembridge Harbour where he worked for 5 years as the berthing master. Rob has always had a passion for boats and has previously worked as a skipper on a 90ft sailing training yacht. He is a keen biker, loves F1 and Southampton Football Club.

Laura Mills

Laura has worked in Finance for the last 19 years, moving from her last job in the Cycling Industry, to join the team. She knows nothing about boats so will stick to the office!
