Peter Mactier

Sales / Director

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 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.


  • We wish to extend our sincere thanks to the fabulous team at Yoti. We felt our purchase was supported by your expertise and genuine care and consideration for our needs. Our questions were answered immediately and at length and all issues address without question. You certainly went the extra nautical mile. Yoti made our purchase fun and problem free. It certainly wasn’t about the sale for Yoti, but most definitely about the ‘sail’. Even the after sale service was impressive, both Peter and Tim were generous with their time and expertise and we were impressed by their dedication after the deal had been done and others would have moved on. We would have no hesitation to recommend your services and we hope to keep in touch. Ruth and Steve Wardle
  • Beverley and I were so happy with the service offered by Peter Mactier. Peter took the stress out of buying a boat and I will be recommending Yoti to anyone buying or selling a yacht in the future. Iain Small
  • 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
