Welcome to Yoti



These words describe Yoti and the team behind the name. We have the industry experience and now we wish to work for your respect and trust by surpassing your expectations and delivering the results. Founders John C Cowpe and Tim Vine welcome you to browse the website and get in contact in order that we can help.

Yoti was founded in March 2008 and exists to provide an alternative sales platform for the yachting community.

"The mission of our company is to create Australia's most respected sales operation for the sale and purchase of quality production marine vessels. We will grow and lead the industry through honesty, excellence in communication and high levels of service with the belief and commitment of all stakeholders."

Founders John C Cowpe and Tim Vine have developed a deep network within the yachting community both here in Australia and throughout the International sailing community:

Tim Vine

Born in Sydney, Tim has grown up around the waterways of NSW and has developed his love of sailing into a business passion. Tim began his sailing career racing and cruising in trailable yachts, then moving into keel boats when his family purchased their Northshore 38 "Sorceress".

Tim has a wide range of experience in Yacht Sales and Brokerage having worked in Melbourne, Sydney and the South of England. Tim's strength lies in the fact that so many of his clients have become good sailing friends over the years. As National Sales Manager for Australia's largest networked brokerage and direct involvement in hundreds of completed transactions, there is no-one more enthusiastic and qualified to look after your yachting needs.

John C Cowpe

John's passion for the sea has developed from his early years being brought up just along the beach from the yards of the famous Fife yacht builders in the village of Fairlie on the West Coast of Scotland. Whether it be windsurfing, yacht racing, dinghy racing, cruising or sailing across oceans, John has grown up deeply engrossed in the sailing world and continues to share his passion with anyone who will listen!

Having worked through many Brokerage transactions here in Australia, John chose to specialize in the sale of new yachts and catamarans. As Australia's leading new yacht seller, John has over seen the successful hand over of well over a hundred new yachts both here in Australia and in Europe. John's pride lies in the respect of the owners he has had the honor to represent throughout his many years selling yachts.

56' Lagoon 560
2011 A$ 1,350,000

Proudly and exclusively offers for sale the 2011 Lagoon 560 "Ninigo", currently lying in the Whitsundays, Queensland.

The Lagoon 560 is often described as the biggest boat a family can sail without professional crew. It is the ultimate Voyager's catamaran, with all the advanced hallmarks of Lagoon; Infusion molded construction, vertical windows for the saloon, spacious light-filled cabins and the "gull- wing" bridge deck to mitigate slamming.

Ninigo's accommodation consists of four very large double cabins, all with private electric heads and showers, plus a crew cabin in the starboard bow. The starboard aft owners cabin features a very large ensuite plus both internal access and cockpit access via a private sliding hatch.

The free flowing saloon has fabulous 360 degree views through the vertical windows. Forward in the saloon is the navigation station, with Plotter and the newly installed 'C zone' Digital Control and Monitoring system. The galley to starboard is spacious and well appointed while the main saloon seating to port offers somewhere simply to relax or for formal dining.

An abundance of outdoor living areas is defined with the large, yet cosy cockpit with folding table and aft seating. The bow area with sunken seating and large trampolines is additional to the flybridge area with its own lounge area and undisturbed wrap around views.

The flybridge, accessible via a closeable stairway, has a centrally mounted helm station with great visibility. It has all the usual navigation instruments, including a second plotter, autopilot, engine and windlass controls. All lines of her large, but easily handled sail area are led back to four electric winches, around the helm.

A deck accessed, centrally mounted utility space includes the sound boxed generator and technical area. Her main engines are aft and well away from the living quarters and are well insulated. A Caribe 430 Rib with 30 hp Honda sits on the hydraulic tender lift platform which doubles nicely as a fun swim platform or wet bar. Ninigo is a luxurious, high capacity and easy to handle blue water passage maker, ready for her next adventure.
