About Us

When dealing with an MDBS office, you can be assured of being professionally advised on your boating requirements by people with extensive knowledge of both power and sail boats. Maurice Drent Boating Services (MDBS) commenced business in Australia in 1977 at Double Bay in Sydney.

Having established its name selling quality used power/sail boats and new Bertram cruisers, the business then expanded in 1982 by taking over the brokerage of the prestigious Cruising Yacht Club of Australia, at Rushcutters Bay, Sydney.

During this period MDBS, in Sydney, successfully sold nearly 2,000 boats ranging from Quarter ton yachts to Maxi's and some of the world's best known cruising yachts and power boats, both large and small.

In 1995 MDBS again expanded its Australian operation by opening offices throughout Australia and Asia.
Today the MDBS Brokerage Network is managed by Tim Stranack and Sam Crowle and both are actively involved in assisting with the day to day running of the MDBS Brokerage offices and have selected some of the most experienced and qualified people possible to advise and assist you with the purchase of your next boat or the sale of your current boat.

If you are interested in starting up your own MDBS Brokerage office please contact Tim Stranack or Sam Crowle. Email sales@mdbsaustralia.com for a confidential discussion.
