Dianne and I want to take this opportunity to thank you for your very professional approach to our boat listing with you and 36° Brokers. We clearly appreciate the successful sale of our boat, but we are also especially appreciative of your focus on keeping us informed on progress on a regular basis. Keeping your seller and buyer regularly informed of progress is critical within the successful sales and marketing of all high-value assets.

Best wishes for your ongoing boat sales success into the future.

Paul made the sales process easy with good ideas, good communication, and setting reasonable expectations. I would use him again to sell any vessel.

We have just sold and purchased boats through 36°. Both Chris from Opua and Harry from Westhaven were amazing to deal with. They were both available and ready to offer advice and help in all aspects of this process. Both of these guys went the extra mile, and we would willingly deal with them again.

I would say thanks a lot to Eric and 36° for the amazing support and customer service during the sales process.  Everything since the beginning has worked perfectly well, smoothly, and above our expectations.

I approached 36° to sell my Elite Sportfisher 12.8m and was impressed with how professionally and efficiently the process went. The boat was under contract within weeks of listing, at asking price. They really did their homework and executed the sale exactly like they said they would. Chris from the 36° - Bay of Islands branch, handled the sale and was excellent. If you are looking for a sales team that delivers, I would recommend 36° Brokers.

We recently had the pleasure of working with Laurent in Marsden Cove and his professionalism and expertise was immediately evident.  Assisting us in navigating the process with proficiency, providing insightful guidance and support at every stage.  Laurent was incredibly responsive and offering valuable advice.  His attention to detail and willingness to go the extra mile, made us feel confident purchasing in New Zealand and having it delivered to Australia with the recommendation of a delivery crew.  Having a reliable and knowledgeable Broker made all the difference.

The recent sale of our 55ft’r can only be described as a major test of a salesman and a vendor’s patience. 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 isn’t your typical overpromising and underdelivering salesman. Trent was extremely reliable, nothing was ever too much trouble. 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 the 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.

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 organised 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° 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°. He couldn’t have been more helpful or professional. From initial contact through 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° 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 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°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 and honest agent. 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 and I felt like it mattered a lot for my buyer. As far as I am concerned, he is my first choice for buying or selling any yacht in the future, hands down.

I recently purchased a yacht sold by Robbs at 36° 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 enjoyable and exciting - the way purchasing a boat should be. Thanks, Robbs and the team at 36°!




I am very happy with the way the sale of Sharde was handled by Conrad and the 36° 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, arranging accommodation and picking us up from the airport. We love our new boat! We are hoping we will get to see lots of interesting places with Tenebo.

Our first contact for viewing the beautiful boat we purchased from 36° was Daisy & myself 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 and better. Conrad was outstanding from the word go and nothing was ever too much trouble for him and 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 and Rob at the Opua office was just brilliant - another easy transaction! Accordingly, we have no hesitation in recommending 36° Brokers as your boat broker - it’s all “too easy”!

My family and I are very appreciative for the efforts in achieving a successful outcome on our behalf.  I would not have been able to reach the same point without help from the 36° team.  I truly appreciate the professionalism and patience extended while I was completely out of my depth. Thank you again

We were very pleased with the outcome from listing our FP Orana 44 with 36°. 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.

My experience with Conrad and his team during the purchase was a pleasure. Negotiations and clear explanations about the purchase were clear and concise. The whole transaction was thoroughly professional and I have no hesitation in recommending 36°as an excellent company to do business with.

“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° Brokers 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”.

"I was totally impressed with Shaun and his enthusiasm to make it all happen. As a brokerage, they did what they said they were going to do, where others had tried and failed."

As a seller and purchaser, I found 36° 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.

“We felt well taken care of during the whole process, and were impressed at how proactive the company was in selling our boat. They guided viewers our way instead of just listing and waiting for clicks.”

36° 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 personally bought and sold through them and would highly recommend them to anyone. They are the best guys to go to if you want to buy or sell.
