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.

Buyer

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!

Vendor & Buyer

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.

Vendor

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.

Integrity 380 Flybrige 23

Vendor & Buyer

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"

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."

Vendor and Buyer

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.
