Sea Independent was founded in 2010 by Marcel Borgmann, one of Holland’s most experienced and respected yacht brokers. As founder and CEO of Contest Brokerage, and later as general director of Contest Yachts, he gained lots of experience with international transactions and network cooperation with other yacht brokers. Based on this experience he decided to take international sales of luxury yachts to the next level with Sea Independent.
Rutger van Bemmel, founded Boat Doctor in 2009 and became in 2012 agent for Sea Independent in Spain.
In 2012 both decided that the next step in the development of the Sea Independent network should be a greater integration and a more recognizable branding. “For our clients the network must be fully transparent and 100% reliable”. The network of agents is the only one in the world that is certified according to high-minded principles of competence. This guarantees top quality service.
