Professional Marine solutions, as easy as 123

Yachting is one of life’s most enjoyable experiences. We are here to make sure it stays that way.

Our promise to you

At 123 Hulls we’re not focused on closing a deal or completing a repair, then waving goodbye. We form long term relationships with our clients that continue beyond the purchase of a yacht, supporting them throughout the ownership experience. We’ve built our business one client at a time through mutual trust, reliable performance, and exceeding your expectations each and every time.

About us

123 Hulls was founded by Greg and Carol Robinson 2005, with the aim of offering a comprehensive range of marine services that includes charter brokerage, yacht sales, yacht management and yacht deliveries.

Long term boaters, Greg and Carol left their native South Africa in 1997 and sailed across the Atlantic in their 36’ steel cutter with their youngest son Barry Jon.

After several years of cruising up the Amazon, through the Caribbean island chain and along the coast of Central America to Florida, they eventually settled in the BVI in 2005 and opened 123 Hulls.

Their personal experience of yacht ownership, extensive cruising background and mechanical and engineering expertise put them in the ideal position to assist others to realize their yachting aspirations.

Your BVI yacht brokerage of choice

Carol’s love of sailing and her previous professional experience in customer-facing roles found a natural fit in yacht brokerage. Working both in yacht sales and charter reservations, she is enthusiastic about matching clients’ with the right boat and derives great satisfaction from helping them bring their yachting dreams to life.

Over the years Carol has gained experience in the purchase and sale of every type of vessel from mono hull and multihull sailing yachts of all sizes to motor yachts of every description including new construction on both custom and semi-custom vessels.

Supporting you in yacht ownership

Greg runs the service side of the business, drawing on 12 years’ working for BMW in South Africa and many more years’ experience in marine electrical and mechanical engineering. He now uses these skills diagnose and repair faults, and to maintain and manage clients’ yachts.

Today, their sons Sean and BJ work with Greg on the technical and service side.

123 Hulls, with their partner Robmarine BVI, are the BVI dealers for Frigomar parts and service and the Virgin Islands distributors for Tecma waste systems.

Comments from some of our clients

Thank you so much for all you did for us. We are very pleased with the boat. We now have plans to put in a second diesel and to completely refit to a ‘luxury standard’. So many, many thanks to you, also thank you to Greg for his advice, and we hope to see you both again when we come south and do the Caribbean.

Wow, it was so impressive that you would drive 400 miles just to be there for a survey. That is customer service and that is what your company is all about. …. It doesn’t matter what product or service you sell, it is the customer support that makes all the difference in closing a sale and repeat business. You are #1 in my book. Keep it up!

Bill Crouch President Emerald Coast Yachts, Inc.

We have bought and sold many boats over the years and worked with many brokers — Carol, you are the BEST, you are #One. Your attention to detail, your constant follow-up, always making yourself available (even when you were on vacation in South Africa), to take care of any questions no matter how large or small!
