Darren and Jason Empire Boat Sales Empire Marinas http://www.empiremarinas.com.au
Leading Sydney Boat broker Jason Ash has joined forces with Darren Vaux of Empire Marinas in an exciting new business venture Empire Boat Sales. A recent fire at the facility has done little to dampen the enthusiasm of the pair, with reparations almost complete restoring the historic marina to its award winning best.

Empire Boat Sales brings together two highly regarded individuals in the marine industry. Prior to running his own successful boat brokerage Jason Ash spent 20 years with Avante Marine, one of Australia’s largest retail boating groups. Darren Vaux is the owner of Australia’s most highly awarded marina, Empire Marina Bobbin Head. Together they make a great team, committed to offering an exceptional level of sales and after sales service for their clients.

Jason's career began establishing small boat brokerages on the eastern seaboard to managing a multitude of marine dealerships right along the east coast of Australia. Passion, drive and customer service have been the cornerstones of his success, 'I love what I do,' he said. 'I have grown up in this industry and I am very pleased to be working with Darren on our new venture at Bobbin Head.'

Darren Vaux is the principal of Empire Marina at Bobbin Head, voted Australian Marina of the Year since 2009, holding 5 Gold Anchors - the highest rating in the international ranking for marinas.



'We are always looking for opportunities to improve and expand on our service to our clients and the boating public,' he said. 'Empire Boat Sales is a logical step in the progression of our business model.'

Vendors and purchasers can be assured of quality service and great results that the two men behind Empire Boat Sales have to offer.
