We have built the best team of experts that can tackle the boat sales and buying processes from beginning to end.
Brendan Hunt – Director/Sales
We created Vicsail in 1983 as Jo and I arrived back from sailing the Pacific. Australia was winning the Americas Cup, so it seemed logical to keep sailing and avoid going back to teaching music and singing in “Yachtie” bars.
It has been an exciting 30+ year journey with boats and people. Over the years my sailing interests have shifted towards especially multihulls. They are the perfect example of the sailing and cruising dream, such easy living with family and friends.
Outside of boats, my interests are making music, surfing, and skiing.
David Sampson – Sales
David Sampson has been involved with the Professional Yachting Industry for the past 25 years, specialising in Yacht Racing, Composite Yacht Construction and Project Management of new builds and re-fit projects. He also sails professionally for several Australian and overseas yacht teams. This variety of activity and endless experiences keeps David at the forefront of development in yachting which trickles down to each project.
My focus at Vicsail will be on our new yacht sales, especially CNB and Swan plus use his experience to broker larger cruising and racing yachts. Moving to sailing yacht brokerage is the next evolution in my career in this amazing industry, and I am very happy to be part of the Vicsail team.
Matt Cumming – Sales
My role is to support the team by helping to list and update the boats, respond to incoming enquiries and prepare boats for viewing. I worked in advertising but have a made a ‘sea change’ to yachts. I am a keen photographer and videographer, especially of boats. I discovered sailing at ‘Rose Bay sailing school’ when I was 12 and love to get out for a twilight or Saturday race.
