About True North

True North Marine - Sailing Tuition

“Boating is a lifestyle that brings family and friends together. This opportunity to share my experience with people who are ready to embark on their adventure is a true honour”

A little bit about me.

Hi, I’m Stephen Prinselaar, proud owner and operator of True North Marine and holder of the RYA Yachtmaster Offshore ticket.

The most valuable thing on any boat is experience and with over 45,000 sea miles, and living aboard my catamaran Parallel Life, my experience is what I’m happy to share with you.

From helpful advice during the ‘just looking’ stage through to purchasing, sailing tuition and delivery, we are here to make your boating journey exciting and enjoyable.

Prior to boat broking I worked as a creative writer in advertising and wrote articles for local and international boating magazines, which I still get plenty of feedback from when I pull into a bay, or show a boat.

Boating is a lifestyle that brings family and friends together. This opportunity to share my experience with people who are ready to embark on their adventure, as I set out on mine, goes well beyond matching people with the right boat. It is helping people to realise their long held dreams and enhance their boating experience.

Whatever stage of the buying or selling process you are at I love talking boats and I am always happy to share sea stories that come from experience and help you fulfill your goals. That’s how we all learn from each other.

I look forward to hearing from you soon. Safe sailing.
