Thank you, thank you, thank you. Five Star Service.
Our boat was sold just two months after listing her with Justin. Our boat being a bit unique so we felt she was not going to be easy to sell but you were confident you could sell her within a three month period. Two and a half months later you had done just that. From start to finish you were confident, professional and friendly. To those looking to sell their boat you won’t go wrong listing with Justin.

We have just completed the sale of our sailing vessel through Townsville Yacht & Boat Brokerage. The whole process from initial enquiry to completion of sale was handled by Justin in a very professional manner, with very good communications to both the buyer and seller. Justin was very good to deal with and has a great knowledge of both boats and the boating market. Justin assisted with sea trials and haul out and presented the vessel to the prospective owner in very positive manner. We would highly recommend Townsville Yacht and Boat Brokerage if you are considering to either buying or selling a yacht or motor boat.

My wife and I would like to give a big recommendation to Justin, Townsville Yacht and Boat Brokerage, for the professional and cheerful manner in helping with the sale of our yacht. Justin was always on hand to advise us. His promotion of our vessel was excellent and resulted in a satisfactory sale. His knowledge of the market and of our yacht was instrumental in a quick sale. I would have no hesitation in using Townsville Yacht and Boat Brokerage in the future. Thank you Justin.

We’ve just purchased our first boat through Justin van Stom (Townsvillle Yacht and Boat Brokerage), a 40′ Adams-Radford monohull. As relative newcomers to yachting we naturally felt apprehensive and cautious; buying your first big boat can be a big step into a lot of unknowns. Justin understood our concerns and worked to address them properly at each step, ensuring we took no shortcuts, eliminating the unexpected surprises. Energetic and professional, Justin brings an authentic enthusiasm and knowledge for all things yachting to his work which helped us greatly. His calm, confident step by step approach to the deal got everyone over the line, and happy with the outcome.

Have recently purchased a vessel from Justin at Townsville brokerage this being my first serious vessel was daunting and nervous
Now the sale is completed i am ecstatic about not only being a proud owner more so how Justin went above and beyond his duty to make this a easy transition from buyer to owner . His response time to any queries was fast accurate and always with a very pleasant manner. The behind sale scenes where outstanding going totally out of duty to ensure i was comfortable with my purchase and inquiries. Truthfully if he has a vessel in his brokerage that is appealing you will blessed to have Justin as your Broker.
Would definately Trust Justin with any further purchases in the future and you will also
Thanking you Kel West Sassenach

“Dear Justin,
I would like to thank you for all your help and knowledge in the purchase of our boat The One.
Thanking you for your quick responses to all my strange questions.
I would highly recommend Justin as a reputable boat broker and will use his business in the future.”

“I would like to thank you for your service in the purchasing of The Lady Katherine.
Due to my work commitments I have been unable to attend to some aspect of the purchase. You have been very helpful with your network of contacts to ensure things have run smoothly. Personal you have gone well above what I would expect particularly in regard to assisting with the hull and rig inspections. You have been polite and business like throughout the sale.”

Just wanted to write and express my sincere thanks for all the work you did to help me get the purchase of Blithe Spirit across the line. Not only were you of great assistance during the process but living far far away I relied heavily on your team after the purchase and you have not let me down. This was my first big boat purchase and with your team it was simple and clear. I would not hesitate to recommend you guys to any other buyers or sellers out there looking to change their life in one direction or another. But I will keep in touch and look forward to the trip down to Tasmania with Justin in a few weeks time. If this is the start of my life at sea it can only get better. Through you I learnt a lot, always learning. I wish you all the best.

We wish to thank the staff of Townsville Yacht & Boat Brokerage with achieving such a prompt and satisfactory sale of our 46ft Peterson yacht. In such a volatile market your wide coverage of potential buyers payed dividends and the professional closure of the contract made it very easy for us to move on. Many thanks again.

It was an absolute pleasure doing business with the guys from Townsville Yacht & Boat Brokerage. Ron and Justin couldn’t do enough for us, picking us up from the airport, organising survey and slipping and helping us find accommodation in Townsville. They were friendly, patient and understanding through price negotiations and even gave us a bottle of champagne to celebrate our new purchase.

“Every boat owner considers theirs as special; the Tassie-built wooden clinker dinghy purchased through Townsville Yacht & Boat Brokerage (TYBB) really is! I am very thankful to Justin van Stom from TYBB in guiding the efficient sale and safe transport of my boat from Magnetic Island. Justin showed care and consideration both for the boat and for my needs as an absent purchaser. I would recommend Justin and TYBB for purchase and/or sale of your next boat.”
Many thanks Mark Allen

I recently sold my Lagoon 420 catamaran through Townsville Yacht and Boat Brokerage. Justin couldn’t have been more helpful, and I needed a lot of help. Living in Victoria with the boat in Townsville created a challenge as I wanted to present the boat in good working order, and Justin did too. He stepped in and helped with much needed advice, then recommendation and co-ordination of tradespeople. He kept me updated on progress and sent me photos throughout the process. When the time came for marketing we got a quick sale and a good price. I know that Justin has been equally helpful to the Buyer as well. I couldn’t be happier with the service I got from Justin and would recommend Townsville Yacht and Boat Brokerage to anyone looking to sell or buy a boat.

We thank Justin for the sale of our boat. It was on the market for such a short time and had several interested buyers look over the boat. Using a brokerage company proved helpful as it not only generated the potential buyers, Justin was able to discuss our boat with the interested parties and provide any additional information they needed well before we were brought into the picture. His professionalism removed any undue stress as he created a structure on the process and gave us confidence that we only spoke to serious buyers. When he received an offer, he managed the process and the deposit, then he was able to tell us what we were required to do next eg sea trials,,documents required and paperwork to complete for the sale and what the buyer was responsible for. This was helpful as we had never sold a boat before and this structure gave us peace of mind. The cost of a broker was worth all the effort Justin put into the sale of our boat.
