I’m Michael Payne, Yacht Broker with Northrop & Johnson. With over 30 years of yacht brokerage experience, I am a seasoned sales broker dedicated to serving my clients.
I began my career working on yachts, eventually making my way up to Captain. After a chance encounter, I moved ashore and began my career in the brokerage sector of the industry. Since then, I have been actively and passionately involved with all aspects of the yachting industry, whether it be new construction, sales and purchase brokerage, charter or management.
I showcase a sterling reputation of experience, trust and honesty, which are ethics that I have earned and built my career upon throughout many years. Before joining Northrop & Johnson as Managing Director Europe, I worked at Camper & Nicholsons International where I was CEO.
