Purchase, sales,
construction & management
of quality cruising yachts worldwide


Purchasing a yacht should be exciting, but there are often many facets to it that are new to buyers. For our clients much of the uncertainty is mitigated by our considerable experience negotiating contracts, establishing offshore registration, limiting tax and personal exposure, sourcing professional crew, and identifying and engaging reputable caretakers to look after yachts in the owners' absence.

Founder Bob Marston has decades of experience in the marine industry, assisting owners and working with some of the most unique global marques.

Most recently, Bob led the sales and customer service efforts for high-performance cruising catamaran builder, Gunboat. Bob was proud to work domestically and in Asia as part of a cutting edge team at Gunboat. He utilized race-proven aerospace construction techniques that embraced thinking beyond the traditional yachting box. There, Bob developed his appreciation for high-performance cruisers and gained a strong understanding of advanced materials, systems and onboard power generation technologies.

Prior to Gunboat, Bob was a Sales Manager at the U.S. operations of Oyster Marine. Over the course of his 11-year tenure at Oyster, Bob was responsible for new build and brokerage sales as well as directing customer service activities. Here, Bob refined his skills assisting customers with the acquisition, sale, construction, and ownership of yachts worldwide.

Bob began his career in the marine industry as a private yacht captain. This experience provided him with personal knowledge regarding efficient and cost-effective yacht management as well as a thorough understanding of modern yacht systems and handling. Bob has firsthand familiarity with the world's most attractive cruising grounds and the most reputable service facilities.

Today Bob's focus is firmly on family and business. When not assisting customers, Bob cruises the New England coast with his wife Molly and their two daughters aboard WAHINE, the 40' sloop he rebuilt himself; carts his kids to Optimist regattas; or escapes to the beach for surfing, the slopes to ski, or the marshes of New England with his Labrador retriever, Oliver.
