Brendon Grieve has
constructed a highly-
recognised name for himself
which is unsurprising for
someone who has been
working in the marine
industry for 33 years.
Beginning his career as a
boatman and skipper at the ripe age of 19, going
on to sell new and pre-owned boats in 1992 and
then managing R Marine Perth for eight years.
Brendon is on the board of Boating Industry
of Western Australia and still holds a position as
Treasurer on the Marine Brokers Institute of WA
board. With so much experience it is inevitable
that Brendon has built and maintained an
extensive customer base, many of which he
now considers close friends.
So far, Brendon is appealed by the A xopar

maintains the walk-around functionality,
something which to date has been unavailable
Brendon now owns his own brokerage,
Motoryachts Unlimited and is excited to
be adding Eyachts range to his impressive
