Our Yacht Sales Team Asia
Paul Stamp – General Manager (SE Asia)
Paul was born and raised in Sunderland in England’s north east, a city steeped in shipbuilding tradition and boating. His love for sailing took him first to Sydney, then onto Thailand and Malaysia where he became an RYA Instructor and Sunsail skipper. He based himself in Phuket in 2004 initially and has lived there with his family ever since.
In 2007, Paul commenced his sales career with Max Marine Asia, Thailand’s Sunseeker dealership where he expanded his power boating knowledge over several years before moving to Asia Marine in Phuket in 2016 where he managed an extensive brokerage division and completed the successful sale of numerous models of power and sail yachts to clients throughout Asia. His impressive experience also includes overseeing a charter and management operation of more than 20 yachts, managing major yacht refit projects, including two 100+ ft superyachts, representing Fraser Yachts in Thailand.
Charles Robinson – Senior Broker, Asia
Charles has worked in engineering and sales for the oil and gas drilling supply industry for almost 25 years and been based in England, South Africa, Dubai, Azerbaijan, Iran and Algeria. Wherever and whenever possible, he pursued his love of catamaran sailing off the many picturesque coastlines around the world.
He sailed Mirrors, Enterprises and Bosuns as a sport at school then moved into Hobie sailing with his wife in Cape Town in the early 90s. The couple continued their love of Hobies when Charles was transferred to Dubai, and they competed in the 2007 World Championships in Fiji with a Dubai team of Masters sailors.
Kevin Quilty – Sales Consultant, Asia
No one knows the South East Asian marine industry like Kevin Quilty and that’s why we are so pleased to have him part of the Multihull Solutions Asia team. Not long after moving to Phuket in 1992 as a flotilla skipper, Kevin assumed the role of general manager of Sunsail-The Moorings’ yacht charter operations. He spent the following 20 years valiantly ignoring the spectacular scenery and instead focussed his energies on building a highly successful business with his achievements including the establishment of new Sunsail bases in Phuket, Langkawi (Malaysia), Nha Trang (Vietnam), Samui and Koh Chang (Gulf of Thailand).
Kevin also established Asia’s first RYA sailing school, and increased the region’s charter fleet to 40 yachts by 2013. Somehow, he also managed to find time to serve as Chairman of the Marine Alliance of Thailand, helping eliminate the import duties on yachts which subsequently created Asia’s marine industry boom. Despite spending most of his life around boats and attaining Ocean Yachtmaster Instructor accreditation, Kevin is passionate about all sport and is an enthusiastic footballer, cricketer and golfer. However, these achievements are almost inconsequential because when The Yacht Sales Co discovered that Kevin was once a drummer who toured the UK in a band, we employed him immediately. Now our company band is almost complete.
Richard Klein – Sales Consultant, Asia
Born and raised on the shoreline of Lake Geneva in Switzerland, Richard had an enviable upbringing with most holidays spent in the Mediterranean, the Atlantic around La Rochelle and the Republic of Côte d’Ivoire. A watersports enthusiast, he never missed an opportunity to go sailing and attended every Geneva Boat Show. With a BSc in Management from The University of London, Richard was appointed sales manager of a software development company at the EPFL University in Lausanne (Switzerland) which collaborates with the famous Alinghi Sailing Team. In 2018, he relocated to Thailand and attained his RYA Yachtmaster certification, participating in numerous regional regattas on Pulses, monohulls and catamarans. Richard joined the Asia team for The Yacht Sales Co to consolidate his passion for sailing and his impressive sales experience, and just as importantly, brings drumming skills to expand the company’s ever growing staff band.
