Born in Sydney, Ian grew up on the Northern Beaches and had his first taste of sailing when his father bought a ‘Vagabond’ sailing dinghy which they sailed out of Palm Beach. The passion for sailing was quickly ignited and soon he was racing ‘VJ’s’ from BYRA on Pittwater, transitioning into ‘505’s’ as well as ‘Etchell’s’ and eventually into Bluewater keel boats having completed multiple Sydney to Hobart yacht races.

Trained as an Automotive Engineer, when the chance arose to be able to ply his skills in the marine industry, he grabbed it with both hands. He spent a number of years managing the maintenance of the Skipper A Clipper charter fleet and eventually the import, Sales and commissioning of new boats into the fleet as well as a number of private purchases. That lead to other opportunities in Marina Management and brokerage and the start of a passion for sales.

Having spent several years away from the industry, when the opportunity to join the team at YOTI was presented it was too hard for him to resist. Now being able to combine his passion for sailing, his ability to build relationships and assist YOTI customers with their buying and selling decisions, he brings with him a wealth of knowledge and experience to support you along the entire process.


  • It has been an absolute pleasure dealing with you guys at YOTI. Buying any big purchase whether it is a car, real estate or in this case a boat, is often and uncomfortable place to be as it is not ones natural environment. Ian made me feel comfortable as he is honest, knowledgeable and forthright. YOTI will be the place I go to when I sell this one and buy another. Thank you very much. Gregor Macdonald
  • Thank you guys again for the excellent services provided by Ian Greentree during the recent process of purchasing Gingerbread Man.

Thanks Ian! Pedro Balbachevsky
  • I’d like to thank you (Ian) for your attention to detail and help with the sale of Mezzaluna. Strangely I don’t appear to be missing her, perhaps the new project is working as a distraction in the Andrew White
