Rob has been involved with boats for over 35 years and joined David in 2011 as a full partner in the business. Prior to joining the brokerage, he spent over 20 years at a major marine equipment importer as the link between the boatyards and the various equipment manufacturers worldwide. This has afforded him in-depth knowledge when it comes to appraising boats for sale or purchase.
Having worked with clients on bespoke projects, ranging from large cruising multihulls to one-off large racing boats, has equipped Rob with in-depth knowledge of specialist equipment required on board for these vessels.
Rob spent many years on the administrative side of the sport as well as racing all over the world. From the ‘Hong Kong to Vietnam Race’ to the ‘Admirals Cup’, and with multiple South Atlantic Races and the North Atlantic Double Handed Race, he has the experience to advise on various aspects of sailing. He is also a multi decorated yachtsman with provincial and national colours for yacht racing, and is also a qualified Ocean Yachtmaster.
Rob runs the brokerage business and has been successful in selling across the board including the top IRC race boats in South Africa, as well as cruising Catamarans and also new and pre-owned Princess Motor Yachts.
