TRY before you BUY
There is no better way to make a decision on what yacht is right for you than to spend an extended period aboard. You learn very little from a 1 hour test sail or a boat show visit, you need to experience life aboard, under sail and engine, at anchor and in marinas, asleep and awake.
To help facilitate this we can assist you in booking a charter on a yacht of the same brand as the one you are considering through our sister company diYachting which offers luxury charter worldwide.
If you are looking to buy or sell a used yacht then we can help, trading as Grabau International | London, we offer a full range of yacht brokerage solutions. Grabau International is a truly international yacht brokerage network with offices in Scotland, Italy, Lymington, Mallorca, Scandinavia and now London ensuring that we get the best visibility for the yachts we list and give both buyers and sellers the most comprehensive options available.

The thing that attracted Karolina to working for S6 Marine was our readiness and experience in leading the customer not only through the sales process, but the entire after-sales, sea journey! Karolina is based in Poland, but often visits the UK office for team meetings and, like the rest of the team, travels the world to meet clients and show yachts.
Monohull Sales Manager: Perry Carroll
Perry’s Yachting expertise is within the 60-120ft sailing yachts and has some 20+ years of working with the designers, suppliers, yards both build and refit, and in many cases a network that spans across the whole supply chain and occasionally working with Motor- Yacht yards and brands. The main focus of his work was around business development and the supply chain. This is the first time Perry has crossed over to the brokerage and new yacht sales front line. He has been sailing, both racing and cruising, for many decades with a focus sailing in the Mediterranean. With his wealth of contacts, experience and know-how within the sailing world ranging from elite Race Teams to Captains to the Marinas, a network of contacts within the yachting world brings with it the benefit of understanding what goes into making the right yacht for you. In 2020 Perry worked with Matt on various projects and decided that in 2021 he would come on-board full time to manage the Monohull sales side of S6 Marine. Based in Cambridge UK and occasionally Valencia Spain, as that is where his wife is from, Perry is looking forward to assisting you in finding your yacht.
