Established in 1997 the company was initially established as a brokerage for competitive yachts, but expanded to cover custom designs and various builders. In January 2002 current sole Director Lee Condell joined the then director Ron Jacobs and together they secured the agency for representing Jeanneau sailing yachts in NSW. Lee had just returned from 12 months heading performance boat sales for Ancasta, the biggest yacht brokerage in Europe. In August 2015 Ron Jacobs sold his share in the business to Lee.
Lee sailed his own yacht from Sydney to the UK during ’99/’00 covering over 26,000 miles. Prior to that he ran his own performance brokerage and project management business throughout Asia, and had previously managed the original Bashford factory (which became Sydney Yachts), working with Ian Bashford to develop that companies export boat building business. At the time the company was building J24’s, J35’s, Etchell’s and the Hobie Cat range of dinghies.
