At 36º Brokers we pride ourselves on being motivated, integrity-focused, and market savvy to provide all our clients with the best possible service. Here's what some of them have had to say about working with our team.

The recent sale of our 55ft’r can only be described as a major test of a salesman and a vendor’s patients. Trent originally sold our boat where everything went seamlessly, however, the sale later fell through. During this period Trent was extremely active in his attempt to find a new buyer, and never gave up or lost his enthusiasm to complete the sale. I’m pleased to say that our boat has a new proud owner. Trent is a great salesperson and achieves this in a quiet, unimposing and unintimidating style. He certainly isn’t your typical over promising and under delivering salesman. Trent was extremely reliable, nothing was ever too much trouble and he was always obliging. I must also add that 36° Brokers have been fantastic. Everyone from the top down is approachable and I have no hesitation in using this brilliant sales team again.

We were very impressed with Chris Nel at Opua branch who handled the sale of our Mainship Trawler OASIS. Very competent and professional in handling the paperwork with offers and conditional clauses, his friendliness and marine experience made for a very relaxed sale. Nothing was too much trouble for him and he went above and beyond in getting Oasis to and from the haul out facility for the buyer inspection. We were overseas at the time and Chris was happy and able to fill in for whatever we may have otherwise done ourselves had we been there. Well done Chris.

As soon as Robbs came on board our blue-water cruising yacht, he could see the potential for helping someone else carry on our cruising dreams. His enthusiasm inspired us and gave us confidence. We had a unique situation with a health issue and Robbs went way beyond our expectations in assisting us in practical ways, concluding in a happy sale. Robbs love of sailing and the water is infectious and our buyer was totally in love with the yacht and where it would take him. Robbs continued support showed that this sale was more than just a deal, it was a life changing event for all involved and will remain a pleasant memory. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Robbs and the team for friendly, professional service.

Vendor & Buyer

I met Laurent when I was looking for a berth in Westhaven Marina for my launch. He took us straight away to have a look at it and organized all the paperwork. A few months later I decided to sell my launch and asked him if he could help with it. We signed an agreement at the beginning of February and the money was in the bank three weeks later! 

From the marketing campaign with professional photos to settlement, Laurent and the 36 degrees Brokers’ team made it feel so easy and professional. 

A huge thanks to Laurent for the very quick sale of my “Sea Ray Sundancer 310”. I would definitely recommend him if you’re looking to sell or buy a boat.

We recently purchased Namaka 'Sea Ray Sundancer' through Trent at 36 Degrees. He couldn’t have been more helpful or professional. From initial contact through to post sale service, help delivering the boat and assistance in ironing out small issues. We found the whole team to go the extra mile and would highly recommend them.

I have this week completed the purchase of my “retirement” launch. Chris at 36 Degrees was the broker in the transaction and was outstanding in the professional  manner in which he was able to get the purchase agreement to contract. His marine experience was a real attribute and his knowledge of the boat engendered a high degree of trust during the process which was complicated a little by my absence overseas. Chris went out of his way in assisting with delivery of the vessel subsequent to purchase and I could not recommend him highly enough to any prospective purchaser or vendor. 

Luhrs 36 GiovaNI 3


Many thanks for making the sale happen of my Luhrs 36 "GIOVANNI" in a short space of time. From the get go Chris was fantastic. With a calm disposition he got on with the job in a very professional manner. Nothing was too much trouble, from the marketing (the most important part of getting the boat sold), to the bill of sale. Thank you very much Chris & Emma for a great result on the sale of GIOVANNI. Selling your boat- you cannot go past this team at 36 Degrees Opua.



Robbs was recommended by an acquaintance and I was very skeptical as my previous experiences with yacht brokers were absolutely awful. 
I believe Robbs is a very competent agent and also very honest. He sold my boat and it was a very good experience. I felt that he truly represented me as his client, while being very honest with the other party as well and we all ended up with a fair and good deal. He is  trustworthy, competent and knowledgeable. His sailing background is a very big asset, I felt like it mattered a lot for my buyer.
As far as I am concerned, he is my first choice buying or selling any yacht in the future, hands down.

I recently purchased a Yacht sold by Robbs at 36 Degrees Brokers. The entire process from first viewing, to making an offer, to agreeing on the sale was nice and easy, relaxed and professional. Robbs was super accommodating and a pleasure to deal with. In stark contrast to some other brokers I have dealt with, this experience was somewhat of an enjoyable and exciting one – the way purchasing a boat should be. Thanks Robbs and the team at 36 Degrees!

Recently we sold and purchased vessels via 36° Brokers. Our experience in dealing with Shaun Sutherland and the others with whom we had contact was exemplary. This was embodied with attention to detail in all areas including; 

  • negotiation
  • contractual
  • ensuring activities of other external contractors  / suppliers were completed in a timely  manner 
  • demonstrations 
  • empathy and consideration

We would unhesitatingly work with Shaun and 36 Degrees Brokers again and are more than willing to act as a reference.

I would like to thank Shaun and the team at 36 Degrees Brokers for the wonderful job and result achieved with marketing Mon Repos under these extremely challenging times.
Shaun arranged everything that was required throughout the process in an extremely professional manner, I’m sure his enthusiasm and cheerful approach was a major factor in achieving this satisfying result.

I am very happy with the way the sale of Sharde was handled by Conrad and the 36 Degrees Brokers crew.  Everything was handled totally professionally.   In spite of the sale period being through the Covid lockdown which made things more complicated for all concerned, we achieved a prompt and tidy result very soon after the restrictions were eased.

Mark and I would like to thank you personally for looking after us and for arranging accommodation and picking us up from the airport. We love our new boat! And are hoping we will get it see lots of interesting places with Tenebo.

We found Shaun to be enthusiastic and professional with his approach to selling our boat. He is very easy going and great to deal with. We have no problem in recommending Shaun and would deal with him again.

Our first contact for viewing the beautiful boat we purchased from 36Degrees was Daisy & we both thought if this was the professional service we got  from this company, we would be well looked after. And from there it got better & better. Conrad was outstanding from the word go and nothing was ever too much trouble for him & his great team. The purchase processes were carried out with ease making it simple for us to sign on the dotted line! We also sold our previous boat & Rob at the Opua office was just brilliant - another easy transaction! Accordingly we have no hesitation in recommending 36Degrees as your boat broker - it’s all “too easy”!

 We were very impressed with Shaun’s professional approach to the sale of our boat.  He targeted the right client which saw the boat sold within a matter of days.

Shaun was also very organised leading up to the sale with haul out and sea trails. We have and will definitely recommend him to others.

We were very pleased with the outcome from listing our FP Orana 44 with 36 Degrees. Throughout the process both Conrad and Russell were professional in their approach right from suggesting a listing price, organising the marketing and utilising their contact list for prospective clients. The sale process went very smoothly and believe both I and the purchaser were happy with the outcome which is the measure of a good sale.

"We came to 36 Degrees after being played by other major boat brokers around New Zealand. We set out our boat requirements to Shaun and after many calls, follow ups and reviews, we found Shaun's professionalism the selling point for us. Together with the trust he brought to the deal - this ticked all the boxes"

“Working with Conrad and his team was a very pleasant experience. As people who were new to sailing, they guided us through the entire process and made it easy. From getting our boat to New Zealand and delivering it to it’s final home, we knew we were in good hands. The experience and knowledge they have as a team certainly gave us peace of mind."

“36 degrees Brokerage recently sold me Amokura, an Outer Reef 630. As a purchaser, from the initial introduction to settlement day and beyond I found Conrad and his team very result-focused, hardworking and commercial. They put in the extra effort to get the deal done and have provided very good buyer support and follow up”.

As a seller and purchaser, I found 36 Degrees to be very efficient to deal with. They found me a buyer within 6 days of listing, and that’s a good reflection of the contacts they have in the market, and who’s in the market to sell. On the purchasing side there was clear and constant communication which really reminded me that they were working for me, and the after sales service was very genuine and thorough. The depth of knowledge they have in the market really makes a difference, and the final outcome has been brilliant.

 36 Degrees Brokers are an excellent team, and a great example of the new generation of brokers coming through the marine industry. They are keen, motivated, and really know their stuff. I have personal bought and sold through them, and would highly recommend to anyone. They are the best guys to go to if you want to buy or sell.
