Updated: Apr 6
It gives me great pleasure to announce that EZIYACHT is the winner of the APAC Australian Enterprise Award 2023 for ‘Best Independent Boat Brokerage’.
This merit-based award is presented annually by APAC Insider, and judges nominees based on their contribution to a chosen business sector.
To determine the winner, the judging panel and research team take into consideration the commitment, expertise and innovation shown by nominees through voting information, supporting evidence and extensive independent research.
Nominees are given the opportunity to present their own data which is considered alongside the information collated by our research team. In considering nominees, all external channels, data sources and content are independently assessed for quality and authenticity.
Being awarded the prize for ‘Best Independent Boat Brokerage’ is due to several factors. EZIYACHT has achieved consistently high customer rankings for exceptional service across the board. The business has overcome economic challenges experienced during the global pandemic, gaining recognition from clients and customers across Australia for producing a highly valued product with consistent results. The business founder is an advocate for women in an industry which identifies as having a considerable gender imbalance.
Customer surveys highlight high satisfaction ratings in several operational categories with 98% of customers rating the business and its services as ‘Beyond Expectations’. Survey results found that 100% of customers would ‘Highly Recommend’ EZIYACHT services.
“It was an honour to be nominated for this award and a wonderful surprise to be recognised as the ‘Best Independent Australian Brokerage of 2023”, claims founder Sonia Robinson.
“When I started EziYacht one of the goals for the business was to become known as the best cruising yacht brokerage in Australia. I wanted to raise the bar by offering a quality product with unparalleled service and premium marketing materials that would set us apart from other brokerages often providing mediocre services.
EziYacht sets out to achieve the best possible outcome for our clients 100% of the time. We offer quality over quantity and we commit to every project through to fruition. Whether our clients are looking to buy a boat or willing to sell, we take the time to listen to their needs before offering sales advice and guidance. We know our process works because when asked, our customers consistently tell us not to change anything. As an independent brokerage, we offer competitive rates, and we promise a top quality and professional product and very happy customers every time.”
EziYacht takes every detail into consideration when advertising boats and prides themselves on their personalised service to clients and their meticulous approach and attention to detail.
“It’s not just about selling boats – it’s about finding the right fit and this goes hand in hand when assisting people who are looking for a boat.
We take as long as is needed to present each vessel, regardless of price point as we want to make every detail stand out. We endeavour to test sail each vessel before listing as this allows us to capture eye-catching footage while familiarising with the boat. This enables buyers to make informed decisions about a purchase, while giving sellers peace of mind knowing that they can expect their yacht to really stand out.
We want people to have full confidence that they have chosen wisely by placing their trust in EziYacht.”
EziYacht’s founder is willing to assist with narrowing the gender gap when it comes to boating and boat ownership.
“Above all else, I believe that everyone should be entitled to do what they love and I don’t see why there should be any barriers – regardless of race, age or gender. We all share the same passion for the ocean, boating or sailing in all its forms and that is what really matters. My passion motivates me to help people with buying and selling boats, so it is a really great honour for EziYacht to be recognised for our achievements by winning this award.”
EziYacht wishes to thank all its patrons who have helped in achieving this award.
