Michael Coxon | Sales
For 17 years I was happy being a plumber, but in 2011, felt I needed a new challenge. Having always enjoyed boats and sailing, the idea of working in the boating industry was appealing, so I joined the Vicsail team in 2011, and selling the Beneteau Yachts is one of the highlight of this job!
I started sailing Manly Junior’s at Pittwater, then 420’s and 49ers and also raced an Etchells with my father Richard and Tony Hearst, contesting world championships along the way.
“I really enjoy it; it’s a good lifestyle, it only took me a couple of months to get into the groove”. Feel free to contact me in the office when seeking boat sales and Yachts.
Greg Larkings | Sales
I am very excited to be a Beneteau yacht sales team member and have experienced the brand for many years being a past Beneteau owner. I race weekly throughout summer on a variety of boats from Cherubs to yachts at the CYCA. I am also very involved in junior sail racing with running junior club racing and race directorship for junior class championships.
Sydney has the world’s best sailing harbour and I’d like to help more people enjoy it on a new or used Beneteau!
Shane Crookshanks | After Sales Manager
As an avid sailor having the opportunity to sail on a range of Beneteau Yachts from 25ft to 60ft is one of the great bonuses of working at at Vicsail. With their unrivalled sailing characteristics, solid construction and innovative design Beneteau has established itself as the leading brand in the world of sailing in both Australia and all over the world. Any opportunity I get to sail one of these yachts, I jump at the chance! I look forward to welcoming and working with our new Beneteau yacht owners.
