The Metre Yard was established from a love of classic sailing and motor yachts.

The Metre Yard is run by Carl Whitewood, a classic yacht owner and passionate boat racer. He has been providing brokerage service to clients for over a decade, and, following time at a Super Yacht brokerage house in Monaco, has now returned to his roots in Hamble. He can often be found at the Elephant Boatyard, where he keeps his boats as well his brokerage, tinkering with his Mini 12 or overseeing the restoration of his 1971 classic Dragon, Tschüss.

From selling and buying, right through to the refit management of your next project, The Metre Yard will work with you at every stage.
