Here’s what some of our happy customers have said on Google Review. We hope to work with them again and continue supporting them on their boating adventures for years to come.

Personal Service

“Sydney Marine Brokerage recently sold our Riviera 43 after a brief marketing period of a few weeks. I decided to approach them because of the excellent reviews and for the simple fact that Andrew had his personal phone number of their web-site and he answered the phone. They are obviously a cohesive and supportive team, but the majority of the sales work was done in our case by Cathy. She is an outstanding employee: personable, professional and knowledgeable. I felt we were in good hands with her looking after our sale. I would recommend Sydney Marine Brokerage to any potential seller or buyer. You won’t be disappointed.”

Prompt & Focused

“Having just completed the purchase of a yacht through Sydney Marine Brokerage I have nothing but praise for the way Andrew handled the whole process from the initial inspection through survey and delivery. My questions were always answered promptly with Andrew getting back to me out of business hours even if the question was not urgent. Everything regarding the purchase process was clearly explained to me once I had decided to go ahead so I was comfortable as things progressed. A great company to deal with, honest and professional in all aspects of my dealings with them.”

Honest and Courteous

“I wanted to share my experience with Sydney Marine Brokerage as it was nothing short of professional. I was very impressed particularly by Rick, who was great with communicating and responding to calls and texts in a very timely manner. Rick adds a personal touch with his personal experiences and willingness to support through the sale. I really appreciated his honesty and courteous nature. Andrew was equally great to deal with as he stepped in during Ricks’s days off. Thank you both for the great service and successful sale.”

Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness

“Thank you SMB for helping to pass my classic timber boat on to the fabulous new custodians. Rick did a brilliant job from taking the initiative to get in touch with me in the beginning and follow through to the sale of my boat. He was in constant contact and kept me in the loop. Their advertising was fantastic and they were very accommodating with trying to sell the boat. I highly recommend Sydney Marine Brokerage.”

Gets Results

Rick from Sydney Marine Brokerage is fantastic to work with and gets results. He will tell you what you have to do in order to get your boat sold. We did put in some work and money but then the boat sold in a matter of a few days. Very highly recommended.’

Experienced yachtsman and transparent sales manner

Andrew was the owner’s broker/agent of a 40’ yacht I recently purchased. Andrew was always on time for meetings, professional and patient as he showed me around the boat, which he ensured was well presented, and he knew all the details of the boat. He was very helpful during the survey and test sail answering all the questions asked by the surveyor and managed the sail really well. As I observed he also commands the respect of other highly experienced yachtsman, so he knows what he is talking about! I found Andrew to handle the negotiation and in fact the whole sales process in an efficient and transparently manner. Post sale he skippered the yacht from Sydney to Pittwater for me providing a lot of sailing tuition enroute – it was also a great fun sail. The following week he arranged for one of his staff, Rick (a seasoned sailor in his own right) to sail the boat to it’s permanent mooring for me, taking a Saturday afternoon of his time in so doing (thanks Rick). They have also offered to assist me with my sailing into the future. How would you describe that service? Simply EXCELLENT! Andrew has a very geniune, friendly and helpful demeanour – a very rare breed these days indeed! Thanks very much.’

Highly professional and very knowledgeable

‘We were commissioned to do a survey and test sail on a Bavaria 41S where Andrew was the broker. Andrew was more than helpful setting up the slipping and haul out of the vessel. We were most impressed with his sailing skills and knowledge. He went out of his way to be helpful during the survey and help rectify any problems. We’d like to recommend his services to anyone

No hesitation in recommending Sydney Marine Brokerage

‘To fellow yachtsmen who want to sell their boat, I have no hesitation in recommending Sydney Marine Brokerage. I dealt with Rick Payne. He was professional, efficient and helpful in assessing the value of the boat and in marketing it for sale. Within a month, he found a buyer, negotiated the sale, and attended to all the usual administration that goes with a sale, including a survey. In short, I was delighted with the service and sale’

Totally pleasant experience

‘This is my first dealing with Sydney Marine Brokerage and I have to say it has been a totally pleasant experience. The yacht was very well presented, and was as described. The surveyor’s report confirmed this. The test sail was superb, confirming Andrew’s opinion of the yacht’s sailing characteristics. All in all, my dealings with Sydney Maine Brokerage have been exceptional, with efficiency, service and high integrity being of the highest calibre. I have no hesitation in recommending this brokerage to any prospective buyer or seller.’
