The Dbeere yachts team
Having spent almost twenty years as a Yacht Broker, with at least 15 of those spent focussing on Sunseeker motor yachts, Debbie decided it was time to lead with her brand and set up Dbeere Yachts in 2009.
With a wealth of experience gained from selling in excess of 200 motor yachts, Debbie is passionate about looking after her clients both buyers and sellers. Anyone who knows Debbie will comment on her relentless and professional approach to getting the job done and her drive and commitment ensures Dbeere Yachts is a leading brokerge company in the global market.
Debbie was born into a world of boating and quickly developed a love for sailing and water sports. When she wasn't on a boat navigating the challenging Welsh waters of her childhood she was wind surfing and at the age of 18 competed for the UK in the world funboard championships.
A move to the Middle East saw Debbie spend some 12 years living in the UAE enjoying her love for the sea with warmer temperatures. Debbie has herself cruised extensively around the Balearics, Croatia and the Western Mediterranean and prides herself on being one of the few female yacht brokers who is a skilled motor and sail boat handler.
Debbie invites any prospective buyer or seller to contact her business to experience a motivated, focused and highly professional approach to client care.
Growing up in the quintessential British seaside town of Swanage, Jon came from a strong nautical background. From an very early age he spent most of his time with his father and Great Uncle on the family yacht sailing around the Dorset Coastline. After getting a taste for boating Jon trained as a sailing instructor on the Hobie Cat sports catamaran which he went on to race at a local and national level.
Even those who have never been to Swanage Bay may be familiar with the coastline as it is the backdrop for many of the Sunseeker photo shoots as the area was used for the sea trials for the new Sunseeker models. Jon says seeing these beautiful motor yachts cruising past his catamaran must have had some influence on his later career and he still remembers seeing the Hawks and Tomahawks when they were first launched.
Following a successful career in Health Club Management in London and as a Financial Advisor, Jon broke into the marine industry in 2005 gaining his first break with Sealine Sales. Quickly showing a flare for yacht brokerage and new boat sales he secured a role with Sunseeker Sales selling the very boats he saw on the water as a young man. Over the 11 years of international motor yacht sales and independent yacht brokerage Jon has gained extensive experience of the many brands available across the market place and has clients in many parts of the world. Jon was delighted to join Dbeere Yachts in 2013.
Lucy is the cog that keeps the Dbeere Yachts wheels turning. She is responsible for managing the team and keeping everything in check. Her diverse roll includes monitoring budgets and cash flow, managing our listings, website and advertising, arranging the boat shows and generally assisting the company with the multitude of tasks, usually thrown at her last minute. Based in our office in Poole she is always on hand to be of assistance.
Now with over 6 years experience at Dbeere Yachts Lucy is relentless in her desire to ensure our customers, both clients and brokers are given the service they have come to expect from our business.
Lucy is never more so at home then when in or on the water. Having lived by the sea all her life she can normally be found in the early or late hours of the day, swimming, surfing or paddle boarding in our salty waters. Her colleagues and friends are wondering if she may actually be a candidate for the remake of 'Mermaid'
Julie can be instantly recognised by her huge personality and zest for life seen by many at boat shows and open events when she is a key member of our client facing promotions team.
When she is not involved in the more glamorous side of our business she keeps us on track as our Health & Safety Officer, Risk Manager and HR Advisor. Julies devotion to the business is admirable whilst balancing her role as a full time mum of two teenagers, and part time professional chef.
A seasoned 'boaty', like the rest of the Dbeere Yachts team, Julie is never happier than when on or in the water.
Look out for Julies smile and vivacious personality on the Dbeere Yachts display at one of the Med based boat shows.
