The individual responsible
Chris Dobson ~ Yacht broker and manager.
I have had the pleasure of owning quite a few yachts over the many years that I have been sailing. Of which my current yacht is my sixth. They have ranged considerably in size and design, and have included everything from a racing yacht, to a classic double ender, to a centre cockpit cruising yacht. Through necessity and experience, I have gained a comprehensive and broad knowledge of boats, maintenance, and the many systems onboard.
I grew up in Auckland, the City of Sails. As a young boy I learned to sail and started racing in Optimist dinghies at Panmure Lagoon Sailing Club. The hobby quickly became an obsession, and I have now been fooling around in boats for over 40 years.
In 2009 I bought a yacht in the British Virgin Islands and cruised extensively through the Caribbean, transited the Panama Canal, cruised the South Pacific, and eventually found my way back home to Perth in Western Australia.
