Bayswater Nissan

The Townshend family has been a trusted and respected name in the Hawke’s Bay Motor Industry for over 60 years. Charlie Townshend, Rob’s father, dedicated many years to working in and operating businesses within the industry until his sudden passing in 1987.

In 1985, at the age of 19, Rob Townshend followed in his father’s footsteps and embarked on his own journey into Motor Vehicle Sales by joining the team at Townshend Motors. Over the next five years, Rob’s natural talent as a salesman shone through, and he acquiredvaluable knowledge of the motor industry.

In June 1990, three years after the passing of his father, Rob, at only 25 years old, established Bayswater Vehicles, a small Dealership on Carlyle Street in Napier. Despite facing scepticism due to his young age and lack of management experience at that level, Rob proved the cynics wrong. Over 30 years later, Bayswater Vehicles has grown from strength to strength. Alongside the growth of our Franchised Brands, Vehicle Parts and Servicing Departments, and the unwavering support of our valued customers (Bayswater Family), the original site has expanded and developed significantly.
