About Us


TYC Logo full colour no strapline

Established in 2019 by the team behind 36° Brokers, The Yacht Collective was launched with a singular mission – to offer a premium boating experience without breaking the bank. Our journey started when clients repeatedly came to us wanting to sell, citing a lack of time to use their boat and a hard time justifying the cost. As marine professionals and boat owners ourselves, we understood these challenges firsthand. And so The Yacht Collective was born, offering shared ownership in a premium sail and power vessel. Since then, we’ve been launching innovative new models, and proving time and again that syndication is a winning model!

"My brother and I purchased a share in Sonic (Beneteau GT40) October 2018 and have had the pleasure of cruising numerous times, day trips, weekends and also using unassigned days over New Year.  We have been highly impressed with how well the boat has been set up and what a great team The Yacht Collective are. We are learning more about the boat each time we go out and the list of what we like about Sonic is quite long.  Conrad and Sarah have set it up beautifully - colour co-ordinations, Egyptian cotton sheets, linen, plates, cutlery - all really nice.  Not having to worry about maintenance and to be able to enjoy it is a big plus.  I'm also impressed with the Yacht collective team, they are good people to deal with"

M. Heath Shareholder - GT40 "Sonic"

"This is my second time around in a boat syndicate and I have also owned a boat outright for many years.  I love boating and not working on boats to maintain them.  Being in syndication with the Yacht Collective allows all my boating time to be spent boating, fishing, BBQing and enjoying my family and friend's company.  I've found being in a syndicate I actually use the boat more than when I owned one outright. The service from the team has been second to none. Its been a pleasure!"

Dr S. Kelly Share Owner

Having a share of Exit Point, managed by the Yacht Collective team, is absolutely fantastic. The vessel is perfectly equipped for sailing the greater Hauraki Gulf. We live in regional Aotearoa, but we have always wanted to spend time sailing the beautiful waters of the Gulf but haven’t been able to justify full yacht ownership. Enter The Yacht Collective model - Julia, Jono, and the team are highly professional, practical, and friendly. They work hard to fairly manage vessel bookings, being flexible for folks such as ourselves travelling from the regions while ensuring everyone gets their fair share of days on the water. They do a great job looking after the asset and, overall, provide great value for money.
