Mind you, it sounds like the BLM Media founder and former Saatchi & Saatchi executive is not intent on getting his hands too dirty. He's set to carry on cruising with the launch of a yacht dealership, Cheoy Lee Riviera. The new venture is based in the south of France - Nice work if you can get it. Perhaps Lockett's first customers will be his wealthy former crewmates Steve Booth and Charlie Makin.
Those who remember Jack Rolfe and his Mermaid boatyard from Howards' Way will be pleased to learn that the veteran media man Nick Lockett has moved into the boat business.
