Maarten Ten Holter
Maarten offers clients over 30 years’ experience in the yachting industry. One of the most accredited brokers in the industry today, a certified member of the European Maritime Certification Institute, MYBA and the NBMS (Dutch Association of Sworn Yacht Brokers), he holds the record for being the youngest ever yacht broker and valuer to have been sworn in by the district court of Utrecht in the Netherlands (his homeland) at the tender age of 28.
In the 24 metre (79 feet) and above sector alone, Maarten has successfully bought and sold motor and sailing yachts built by 16 different yards up to 104 metres (341 feet) in length for over 30 clients of 18 different nationalities – over 40% of which keep coming back for more, one client having purchased and sold no less than 10 boats from him over 18 years.
Respected by clients for his knowledge of on and off market deals, his reliability and straight-talking, Maarten has proved his worth representing seller and buyer clients alike – in over 50% of his sales, both sides trusted him enough to want him to act for both.
Married for over 13 years and father of 3, Maarten is fluent in English, German and Dutch and enjoys as much spare time as he can sailing and playing tennis…very often with his clients!
