Boat Broker in Coffs Harbour

Coastwide Marine Broker - Laurence Giles

Growing up on New Zealand’s North Island, Laurence was on or around boats from an early age and developed a passion for sailing.  He commenced his boatbuilding & shipwright’s apprenticeship in 1987, in Auckland with Brin Wilson Boats, then continued to work building some of New Zealand’s most luxurious custom sail and motor vessels for the next 16 years.  He became a master craftsman specializing in fine timber construction and vessel fit out.

In 2004 he relocated his family to Coffs Harbour for the warmer climate bringing along his expertise, experience, and has made a name for himself as the “go to” shipwright for boat owners wanting quality work and attention to detail.   Laurence is now applying that experience gained from 30 years building and repairing boats to boat brokerage and valuation.

He is friendly and easy-going with a methodical and practical approach to boats and boat sales
