Meet the Team


Sam started boating at a young age on his Grandfather’s boat in Salcombe. His first job in sales was selling deck shoes during the summer holidays whilst at University. After University he worked for Salcombe Harbour on the water taxis before moving to London to work for the British Marine Federation, working with the Boat Retailers and Brokers Association.

This led him to his first job as a Yacht Broker on the Thames, a challenging and thoroughly enjoyable learning experience. However, the pull of Devon was too strong and he moved back to Salcombe to work as a Yacht Broker in Dartmouth. Having seen how others did it he decided to go out on his own and set up Devon Boat Sales in August 2015.
