Peter Mactier

Sales / NSW State Manager

Peter joined a local sailing club on the Georges River in Southern Sydney as a youngster which ignited his passion for sailing, the sea and all things boating. Peter’s initiation to the marine industry was during his twenties in the form of deckhand and cook position on a Ketch in the Greek Cyclades.

Some international yacht deliveries were to follow including a Trans-Atlantic crossing and some shorter stints both in the Med and the Caribbean.

Peter returned to Sydney where he became a professional skipper on the Harbour and was later promoted through a leading yacht charter company and RYA sailing school to become sales manager of the largest sailing school in the country.

Now after more than a decade and a half in the marine industry, Peter takes huge pride in selling a yacht through YOTI and making what can be a challenging process as smooth as possible for both owner and purchaser. Peter heads YOTI’s NSW Team from the company’s Pittwater office. His current role allows him to build the company’s market share by coupling YOTI’s industry leading marketing and sales tools with Peter’s significant experience. Peter has been directly responsible for well over 100 yacht sales under the YOTI banner.

Testimonials

  • It is refreshing to meet a group of people that are not only extremely knowledgeable but who are genuinely interested and professional in their business approach. I recently had the pleasure of being shown a very nice blue water cruiser which ended up being sought after by multiple buyers. To the credit of Peter and the guys at YOTI, Church Point, the process of bidding for the yacht was managed in the most honest and fair manner. There was never the feeling that I, and I imagine the other party’s, were encouraged to offer anything more for the vessel than we comfortable with and even though I wasn’t successful in my bidding I left with no reservations and the prospect of continued good will and future opportunity. It’s good to see that ethics in business is still valued by some. Well done and thanks. Steve Thompson
  • I would like to thank you for the excellent, attentive and professional service during our recent purchase of Phantom (Hanse 495). From the beginning you made the process smooth and thorough and went out of your way to answer all our questions and arrange paperwork, sailing inspection, and assist with price negotiations, delivery as well as a thorough walkthrough of all the yachts systems and features. Your communication throughout the process was attentive and responsive – taking us through every step of the way with good advice and tips. Thank you for going the extra mile with additional help on insurance, Marine Survey details, registration, practical yacht handling and berthing and arranging introductions to professional sailing and boat handling trainers and to the Windcraft staff. I will have no hesitation in recommending Yoti, and particularly you Peter, to any prospective purchases or owners as excellent to deal with. Thank you. David Brocklehurst OAM
  • Peter, Julie and I both wanted to thank you so much for your help with our search and purchase of our boat. You made the whole process easy, kept us on the straight and narrow where needed and even helped us through our “mooring meltdown”. We could not have asked for a better broker, and will certainly recommend wholeheartedly. I’d also like to thank your support staff that made the money transfers and the insurance arrangements so easy. Yoti certainly is a good team. Steve Campbell
