Chris Hills has long been a friend of Berthon, growing up in Lymington, the home town of our UK HQ. His family have kept yachts in the Berthon Marina and he has sailed out of Berthon since childhood.
With a foot both in the River Lym and the much more exciting waters of Sydney Harbour, Chris is an enthusiastic yachtsman sailing aboard a TP52 down under as well as running a business that supports yacht owners and their maintenance needs online. You can visit his website ‘Your Boat Manager’ on https://www.boat-manager.com.au/.
How Chris & YBM Can Help Berthon
Chris is our go to person for those clients whose yachts are in the Southern Hemisphere and need service, import advice or even to know where to sail and the best marinas. He can also organise shipping if the yacht is to come back to the Northern Hemisphere. Working with Chris enables us to market yachts for sale in Australia and also to have a footprint in New Zealand, Tahiti, Tasmania and other cruising grounds in the Southern Hemisphere. Now that we have Chris working with us on the ground, we are able to offer an international yacht brokerage and marketing service with good representation.
For those living in this outstanding part of the world, Chris works with us to provide practical options and acts as a local point of contact for owners wanting to buy or sell yachts in the Mediterranean, USA and Europe. As we have offices in the UK, France, Spain, Sweden and the USA, we have yachts for sale in all these areas. So for those who live in Australia and own a yacht outside Australia, we can advise and help with the yacht sales process.
