Hailing from Queensland, Australia, Captain Graham Rutherford has been thoroughly involved with marine life since a very young age. Growing up, his father operated daily tours of the lower islands of the Great Barrier Reef – a trade that Graham later undertook. From there, Graham began building his decade-long career, servicing superyachts and developing his skills. As a deckhand, he worked diligently in each task he was given, his hard work leading him to ultimately rise as captain.
Graham then settled in San Diego in 2007, overseeing a variety of jobs from minimal paint jobs on 30’ yachts to major refits on 250’ superyachts as a Project Manager at one of San Diego’s premier shipyards. Building upon his extensive experience in superyachts and yacht maintenance, Graham then founded Aussie Yacht Service in 2010. His ability to build rapport with clients and vendors through responsibility, trust and top-quality service sets Graham apart from his peers, furthering the work of N&J brokers onboard.
As a yacht broker, Graham understands the market intimately, allowing him to provide the utmost service in yacht brokerage. With a passion for customer service and the yachting industry, Graham champions the ability to go above and beyond to satisfy clients’ needs.
