I have always been around boats, from a Saturday job looking after a 36' Moonraker motor yacht whilst still at school, through working as a Marine Engineer on Super Tankers to a period as a professional yacht skipper. I have also enjoyed racing both yachts and power boats, jet skiing and am a B.S.A.C. qualified diver. On the work front, amongst many other things, I have managed an electrical component manufacturing company and my own successful business for 10 years, and so on to Yacht Brokerage on the beautiful tropical Island of Phuket, the first Boatshed Yacht Brokerage in Thailand or indeed Asia Boating in Thailand has really taken off since the reduction of taxes on the importation of boats from triple digits to just 7% VAT and Phuket has become the premiere yachting destination in Asia, hosting the annual "Kings Cup Regatta". There are now four Marinas on Phuket Island, the "Yacht Haven Marina" at the north of Phuket, the new "Ao Po Grand Marina", the "Royal Phuket Marina" and the " Phuket Boat Lagoon", in addition there are the anchorages at Chalong Bay and Ao Yon used by cruising yachts. My interest in becoming a Boatshed Yacht Broker developed when I came across the Company whilst looking for a Yacht on the internet. I liked the idea of a global network, but with each office owner operated and thus committed to customer service and getting boats sold. Established in 1999 and now with more than 70 offices world wide, 2700 boats listed and 700,000 registered customers, Boatshed is the largest yacht brokerage group in the world. Here in Phuket Thailand we are dedicated to making the process of buying or selling a boat as stress free an experience as possible, starting with our "No Sale No Fee" service, we personally take up to 70 photographs of every boat we list, accompany prospective buyers on viewings and sea trials, attend surveys, and keep all parties informed of progress. At "Boatshed" International Yacht Brokers we only sell used boats, so with no loyalties to any particular manufacturer we can recommend the boat to suit your needs, and guide you painlessly through the purchase process. Of course advice is free as is the coffee in our office, situated in the beautiful Phuket Boat Lagoon Marina, where we are always happy to chat about boats and Sailing in the Andaman Sea.
