Yachtsmen International


A relative newcomer to the Australian superyacht industry, Yachtsmen International was established in 2017 from a desire to deliver on all aspects of the yachting experience. Based in the superb Boat Works facilities on Australia’s beautiful Gold Coast, Yachtsmen International considers all aspects of superyacht ownership, from initial purchase to crewing, and on to management and maintenance, as well as providing sales, new build and charter services.

At the helm of this full-service yachting company is our two Directors – Sean Madgwick & Scott Wellington-Stones. Sean & Scott bring 40+ years of sales experience to the table, along with a wealth of in-depth industry knowledge and a formidable network of clients & industry contacts.

Facilitating the success of the YM team is the seamless communication and support that is provided across all departments of the company – truly a full-service yachting experience that’s efficient, cost-effective, and tailored to the client.



We offer peace of mind, clear communication, and the best value for both buyers and sellers. Our service is personal and attentive from the first contact.
