My introduction to the YOTI team at Pittwater was as a potential buyer of a Hanse. The Hanse had only recently been listed but it was clear from the video and the description it was a good match to what we were looking for, even though we had not considered this brand. Both Peter’s were extremely helpful in understanding what we wanted from our next boat and took us through the boat features to where we felt comfortable to make an offer based on what was important to the previous owner. We were always kept informed throughout the negotiation period and were able to quickly arrive at a package of inclusions, exclusions and final price both parties were happy with. It was a testament to their understanding of both parties motivators, and the support from YOTI back office we were able to achieve this including paperwork within a week. We are now very happy Hanse owners.

Unfortunately I had listed my existing boat for sale with another broker, and it took some period of time and inaction before I was able to move the yacht to the YOTI Pittwater team. What a difference in attention to detail, market feedback, key selling points, proactive updates, and of course the fantastic on water sailing video they shot compared to the previous broker’s approach. Another example of their proactive customer service was during one of the winter storms. I was overseas they sent me a text saying they had been on board, all was good and not to worry about anything. As the weather warmed up out of winter they upped their marketing efforts and soon had a prospect that matched the buyer profile, and again but in reverse, we were able to reach an agreement with the new buyer about inclusions, exclusions and price, again all done in a week. With hindsight if I had known the difference in approach & service I should have listed her with YOTI in the first place. Therefore I have no hesitation in writing this reference as the whole YOTI team make buying or selling a boat much easier and more professional than the others.Cam Wayland
