Geoff has been passionate about boats from a young age and after a career spanning Supply Chain Management, Sales, Industrial Production and Manufacturing, Logistics and Project Management he has utilised these skills to great effect in the Marine Industry.
After operating as a Broker for some of Australia’s leading Brokerages over more than ten years and recognised as Beneteau’s Sailing Yachts representative in Queensland he has joined with his very experienced colleague, Branko in establishing Euroyachts Australia.
Geoff’s success has come through dedication, commitment, knowledge and especially relationship management and as such he has developed excellent partnerships in all facets of the marine industry as well as long lasting friendships with former clients both buyers and sellers often resulting in repeat business.
At the core of Geoff’s philosophy is customer service, essential in giving you the confidence to list or buy your next vessel through Euroyachts Australia.
A keen boater and yachtsman with over 25 years of sales, wholesaling, importing, exporting, manufacturing and retailing. I have been running my own successful businesses in the UK and Australia, working with long term clients and manufacturers to a high standard. Combining my sales, international corporate client contacts and boating experience I saw boat sales as the natural place to be. In essence doing what I enjoy the most. I offer a high level of service and experience with high profile clients at a very approachable level.
My journey in sales started at Harrods in London and only after a few years I started my first business in furniture and eventually acquired a retail premises in South West London. I soon progressed to wholesaling and started to supply the UK's main furniture retailers and shops. Using a number of European manufacturers and expanding the business on a much larger scale by strong presence at various shows and exhibitions I made many long term clients, contacts and friends with help from chambers of commerce and various Embassies. I began working very closely, with personal interest, with two leading manufacturers, one of which employed over 1400 staff, and together developed the largest supply of domestic and commercial furniture in Europe.
My approach to life and business is very dynamic and proactive, always striving to improve with all whom I work with.
I have been successfully selling new and used boats for over 10 years in Australia and enjoy taking the sales experience, for both the buyer and seller to the next level. The new boat brands I have been selling and representing are Bavaria, Beneteau, Four Winns and Benetti Sail Division with the much respected and long standing Benetti family. I had "Stella Maris", a Viareggio Super Yachts yacht for sale, the most expensive superyacht listing in Australia to date.
Over the years I have given my services to some of Australia's largest brokers. Attended all the boat shows and exhibitions, arranged inspections, sea trials and deliveries. Now in partnership with Geoffrey Marsh we have established Euroyachts Australia to take us and all our existing and future clients to the next level. I have access to a large number of quality shipwrights, engineers, detailers and catering / cleaning agencies in essence offering full boat / yacht management if required. As an example I can arrange for a boat or yacht to be moved to any preferred location and arrange all the necessary preparations. Allowing the owner and family or corporate event to arrive to a fully catered, laundered and detailed boat complete with chefs and catering staff.
Put simply if you want the best, come and talk to the best. Boating and yachting is a relaxing, enjoyable leisure and pleasure environment and that is the experience you will receive. My clients are for life whom I always have time for. Is that not the way it should be? Cheers !
Regardless of whether you are a seller or a buyer I will always take a personal interest in looking after you from start to finish and beyond."
