New Ownership ..


Firstly there are some big changes at Peter Hansen, after 14 years Robbie Somers has decided to retire and enjoy a more relaxing life.  So if you see him cruising around the bay on his Island Gypsy 36 “Serene” make sure you say hello and wish him and Beverley the best for their retirement.  Allan, Gail, Joy, Tori and Ashleigh will all be staying on with the business and helping to look after your boating needs.

My name is Don Home and I live locally with my wife and two chocolate Labradors. As the new owner of Peter Hansen Yacht Brokers and the new Marina Manager of Raby Bay Marina I am looking forward to meeting everyone, so next time you are in the area feel free to drop in and say Hi.  I grew up boating on Moreton Bay and have enjoyed the magnificent waterways we have available with family and friends for a long time and hopefully for a long time to come. My wife Robyn and I have recently returned from living in California for the past 8 years and have settled back into the life here in Raby Bay. 

As an introductory offer and also to support a great cause we will be a running a fuel promotion during the month of May…yes, it is our famous six cents off a litre promo!  Everyone can get the six cents off per litre if they donate a minimum of a gold coin to the Shag Islet Cruising Yacht Club -  Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia charity. I hope that everyone will consider donating more to this worthy cause.

We have put together some exciting plans to expand the range of services that we will offer to all our customers to make their boating more relaxing and enjoyable.  These will be rolled out gradually over the next 12 months and we will make sure we keep you up to date with our progress.  So look forward to more regular emails and also updates on our Facebook page.
