Mark Seaton Superyacht Broker Profile
British-born yacht broker Mark Seaton grew up in Devon on the South West coast of England where he spent much of his childhood sailing in the waters of Lyme Bay.
Upon graduating from the University of Leicester (BA Hons Economics & Law) Mark began his career in the advertising sales department of Boat International Publications in London.
He then progressed into luxury yacht sales and worked as an International yacht broker for a number of well-known brokerage firms in London & France before settling on the French Riviera in 2002.
Mark then established a business importing full-displacement trawler & explorer yachts built at shipyards on the Pearl River Delta, Guangdong Province, China.
This developed into a significant business venture with more than 50 new boats sold, project managed, built, imported via Hong Kong and delivered to customers in Europe over a ten year period.
With a growing client base, the move into selling 30-metre-plus superyachts was a natural evolution and is now his primary focus.
With a unique blend of experience, business acumen and educational background, Mark has a rare understanding of legal and financial matters and is a skilled negotiator able to structure even the most complex International transactions.
Mark works with corresponding yacht brokers across the world and with a global network of technical, legal and fiscal advisers. He knows where and how to get things done.
Mark is also fluent in French.
