James believes that buying and selling Yachts should not be a 9 – 5 job, as it takes time to build a relationship with each client individually, commitment to finding the perfect vessel to fit the needs of the client and maintaining a client for future sales. We should provide a personal service to everyone looking to fulfill their Yachting Dream… Size of the vessel is not a concern, a good end result should always be the aim! James believes an integral part of being a Broker is working with his clients through the whole process and has been successful in building and maintaining strong relationships with surveyors, support personnel, owners and crew members. James has most recently been working from the South of France, Palma and London with the accolade of selling two Superyachts to one client within one year!
