A Pathway to Europe through Yoti and Sunbird


A strategic partnership has been created between Europe’s leading yacht sales and service provider and the team at Yoti – created to bring you the first complete solution in purchasing and launching your yacht in European waters.

As the flow of antipodean sailors to Europe and the Mediterranean increases, so too does the demand for ongoing service and back-up whilst enjoying the adventure.

Yoti director John C Cowpe commented “The decision to partner with Sunbird in Europe was one made through an intimate knowledge of the organization and a personal history with the key members of the management team over many years. We truly believe that our Australian and New Zealand clients need a considered pathway towards enjoyment of their yachts when overseas. This is no small challenge when being looked after by a company on the other side of the world and indeed it is often made to feel further away with the challenge of time differences…frustrations soon arise. Therefore the choice of Sunbird’

Sunbird has built its reputation on delivering the service and aftercare that customers demand. “Service on site where you sail”

From arranging your berthing or through their dedicated after sales team, Sunbird’s support team business structure delivers a fully customer focused package.

Sunbird has their western Mediterranean base in Palma where they run new and secondhand boat sales along with a warranty and aftercare centre. For the Eastern Mediterranean its Turkey, mainly because it lies outside of the EEC and so has no sales tax/VAT. Based at Gocek, which is one of Turkeys premiere sailing areas, the head office is in Port Gocek marina where they also maintain after sales support in Turkey and of course the warranty back up for new vessels.

“As always, our aim is to ensure that our clients are being delivered the best solutions by the best people in the business” said Tim Vine of Yoti.
