Contact Chris

Over the past 20 years, Chris Collins has made his way in the ever evolving and intricate world of yachting.


Starting below deck in the crew quarters, Chris worked a variety of positions on both private and charter yachts travelling to diverse parts of the world.

Invested in growth, Chris chose maritime school over vacationing, with the hopes to gain momentum in his career and take full advantage of his time at sea. He earned the title of Captain in 2005, sailing extensively throughout the USA, BahamasCaribbean, and Europe.

In 2007, Chris transitioned ashore with the intention to utilise his knowledge and experience as a master by seeking opportunities in the yachting capital of the world – Fort Lauderdale, Florida. He went a step further and absorbed himself in the logistics of yacht ownership and operations to become a yacht manager, before finally landing in the career he always intended for himself: brokerage.

A highly respected professional, Chris delivers a personalised service, focusing on achieving results that are wholly client-based.
