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.

With his almost 20 years 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 seller and purchaser. Peter officially came on board as a Director in 2020 to join founders Tim Vine and John Cowpe.

Peter has been directly responsible for well over 200 yacht sales under YOTI. With huge thanks to our awesome Team, Peter is a driving force in helping to take YOTI to the next level of yacht sales in Australia and beyond.


  • From the onset of our search Peter offered knowledge and patience and always with a professional, friendly manner. Peter made the whole process seamless and was always available to answer any questions we had throughout the process. Based on full disclosure, exemplary communication, and service that went above and beyond, we thoroughly recommend Peter and Yoti! Phillip & Sandra Rerrie
  • I listed our boat with YOTI as having dealt with Peter in the past my impression was that you are a professional and quality company. By far the best in the industry in my view. I would not hesitate to recommend YOTI and importantly Peter to anyone looking to buy or sell a boat who wanted to deal with a professional, ethical and quality team. Stephen Hardy
  • 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
