Meet The Team
My passion for boating can be traced back to my childhood, where I spent a significant amount of time on the water with my family around the South coast of the United Kingdom as well as all around The Mediterranean.
When I’m not busy selling or listing yachts, you can find me fishing, playing golf or scuba diving – whichever the weather dictates.
BoatsIQ enables me to drive my passions forward and help others enjoy life on the water, guiding others into what can begin as a hobby but ultimately turns into a lifestyle meeting a new family of fellow boaters.
As Managing Director of BoatsIQ, it’s my job to think about how best to look after all our clients to maximise their enjoyment on the water, making the most of precious time with their family and friends. One of my greatest pleasures is watching clients enjoying their boat and knowing that you helped them realise their dream which is turned into reality.
Martin McIntyre, Founder
Born and raised in Singapore, my passion for boating and the nautical space can be traced back to growing up on the water, and my close family connections who still actively work within the marine industry.
Boatside and inside of the BoatsIQ office, I am committed to client focus and care, ensuring efficient after sales services, technical support, and all associated marine administrative tasks.
Being a part of BoatsIq and the dynamic marine industry, allows me to combine my genuine love of all things nautical with practical processes and industry experience, to assist boat owners in achieving a worry free and exceptional boat ownership experience.
“I believe being out on the water is an unforgettable way to spend time with those that are close to you, and I want everyone to experience it… the boating lifestyle has so much to offer…”
Yany Aoki, Operations Coordinator
Having started sailing on commercial ships in my early teens, I have always had a great affinity with the sea and jobs revolving around it.
From working on ships plying around the world, I decided to work on Mega-yachts based in the Mediterranean and had the pleasure of working on Lady Moura which was then, the 5th largest yacht in the world.
Upon returning to Singapore, I worked as a Sales Manager for a yacht dealer representing multiple yacht/boat brands. This was at a time when the marina industry in Singapore was at its infancy with the opening of Raffles Marina, the first 5 Gold Anchor Marina in the Asia-Pacific region.
This then led me to work in the Marina industry in Malaysia and eventually to ONE15 Marina Club as Marina Manager.
Also having held the position as Assistant General Manager for Sunseeker Yachts in Singapore, I saw the trend moving up for larger yachts being purchased within Singapore and surrounding areas. Driven by the new owners’ appreciation for quality yachts, and their pursuit of quality leisure on board time with family and friends, I always strive to meet our clients’ needs and guide them in choosing the best yacht for them
Now with Boats IQ, I intend to diligently carry on this duty of always looking out for our clients’ best interests in selecting the right yacht that fits their persona. Let’s keep on “Boats IQ”.
