Two Times Rolex World Sailor of the Year Finalist Rohan Veal New Owner at 38 South Boat Sales in Melbourne
Previously operating as Vicsail Melbourne and owned by well-known yachtsman Terry Oakley, 38 South Boat Sales is the exclusive Victorian importer for Jeanneau and Archambault sailing yachts, Jeanneau power boats, and Prestige luxury motor yachts.
One of Melbourne’s longest established yacht brokerages and located in the thriving cosmopolitan seaport of Williamstown, 38 South Boat Sales also operates as a brokerage with a full range of power and sailing yachts on their books.
Veal is well qualified to take over the running of 38 South Boat Sales, with a business degree from RMIT he has successfully managed a number of small businesses over the last 15 years.
‘I am always up for a challenge, so my goal now is to continue to make 38 South Boat Sales the most honest and reliable yacht brokerage business in Australia.’ said Veal
With over 70 years of combined experience in the marine industry, the staff at 38 South Boat Sales can offer boating experience and advice to a customer that is second to none. Over 30 Sydney to Hobart races, three World Titles, ten National titles, four Admiral’s Cups, and an America’s Cup campaign are included in their resumes.
Veal goes on to say that ‘Even though we are agents for these new brands that does not restrict us in the brands or models that we will list to sell on the second hand market. We have a lot of experience and therefore can offer customers a wealth of information on each model.’
‘Jeanneau was the most popular selling yacht brand in the world last year, but we are also highly motivated to make it the most popular selling in Victoria and Australia as well. There is nothing that 38 South Boat Sales and the Australian Marine Network won’t do to make this happen!’
Jeanneau are helping Veal and the team realise this as they have released new models in their popular Sun Odyssey and Deck Saloon yacht ranges recently. These models incorporate some of the latest design trends such as hard chines and wide transoms, but also maintain the high quality and light coloured interiors that they are renowned for.
The Jeanneau power boat range is quite diverse to suit all types of owners. They offer excellent value for money from the Merry Fisher Marlin 6 right up to the new Prestige 620 flybridge.
With Rohan’s team made up of both sail and powerboat specialists, 38 South Boat Sales is definitely the brokerage to call in 2013.
