Meet Our TEAM

Chris de Kock

Over the last 22 years in industry Chris has built up a wealth of contacts and  knowledge and is keen to share what he can to assist his clients through their buying or selling process. Client communication is high on the priority list and aftersales service keeps repeat and ‘word of mouth’ business strong.

Thomas Merlier

Thomas is a sailor with a passion for the cruising life, offshore sailing events, and all things nautical. He has logged thousands of miles offshore and has lived on his sailboat. Let’s use his knowledge and experience to help you navigate your way through your next sale or purchase of a yacht.

Mike Turner

Mike is an Eastern Cape native and sailing enthusiast since his Grahamstown boarding school days, which led him to trade his farming roots for Cape Town’s shores in 2002. With a successful five-year tenure as a yacht broker, Mike now re-enters the industry, equipped with fresh perspectives from a 12-year career in real estate.

Chris from Yacht and power sales has given the sort of sales service that restores one’s faith in humanity. He has gone the extra many miles. He has put up with client indecision, waver and insecurity. He has steadfastly advised, provided assistance where ever possible and created the framework to bring comfort to the table.

His straight honesty is refreshing and has earned a great deal of well deserved trust. He has done what he said he would do, he has stood by his convictions and created a relationship between buyer and seller. I can honestly say that if it were not for Chris we wouldn’t have been able to buy our boat and embark on the realisation of our dreams.
