Marine Electrical Solutions Ltd /Landcom was incorporated in 2004 by Ian Eatherley to meet growing customer demand for solutions to marine electrical and land based Radio Telephone electronics problems, and provide high quality products to the boat owners of the Marlborough Sounds and Rural viticulture and earth moving.
Ian is in a solid position to provide these services to a wide range of boats and Viticulture, trucking and earth moving. His 30 years of experience in the industry ranges from owning and managing a successful marine electrical and electronics business in Bermuda to organizing major electrical refits on the superyachts of Mallorca, Spain to providing 10 years of professional and reliable service to the boat owners of the Marlborough Sounds and land based customers. Ian’s technical skills are world class and are backed up by extensive blue water practical experience.
With this service background and through professional association with the major importers and manufacturers of UHF CB and commercial radio communications in New Zealand and overseas, Landcom is able to supply and service virtually any equipment found on commercial machines.
I began an apprenticeship in Automotive Electrical Engineering in 1984 and after 4 years left NZ on the big OE and moved to Bermuda. There I started Bermuda Auto/Marine Electrical Ltd. The business grew and became very sucessful. Bermuda Marine Electrical continued to grow and we started bringing in New Zealand technicians to help with the busy work load on Marine and other Auto electrical applications.
The pull of cruising eventually took over so after 10 successful years we sold the business and cruised the Atlantic, Mediterranean and Caribbean in our own 42ft yacht for 3 years. In that time we stopped in Palma, Mallorca, the super yacht capital of the world and I worked for a local marine electrical/electronics business, Danbrit, who specialized in refits and servicing of super yachts of up to 250ft .I headed up complete electrical refits of an American super yacht sailboat and an American super yacht power boat. We then moved on to Croatia where we left our boat in storage to go and live and work in Sydney. I joined the Barrenjoey Marine Electrical team and was involved in all facets of electrical and electronics but concentrating primarily on Raymarine Electronics installations in New Riverias and Beneteaus. After 10 months there it was time to return to Croatia and cruising the Mediterranean and Moroccan coasts and then back across the Atlantic Ocean to the Caribbean islands. A new addition to the family saw us finish cruising in Annapolis, USA. We returned home to New Zealand where I worked for businesses in Auckland and Blenheim.
When the time was right we decided to open Marine Electrical Solutions Ltd which later became Landcom Auto Electrical Ltd. I wanted to raise the bar on service to my customers and so formed relationships with the best quality product suppliers like GME , Icom and Uniden and many others. My prices are extremely competitive with other service suppliers and retailers in New Zealand and I am committed to the long term.
