Director of sales & purchase, management and new construction
With over three decades in the construction and operation of large motor yachts all over the globe, British-born Rob Dolling is one of the yachting industry’s most knowledgeable brokers. Captaining and building everything from super-fast, ground-breaking Cigarette boat projects in the early 1990s to the large full displacement world cruising megayachts of today, Rob returned to shore in 2011 to focus on the establishment of Monaco’s premier boutique brokerage firm.
“I have personally spent over 30 years in the construction and operation of large motor yachts, starting way back in 1991. Since coming ashore and establishing VERPEKA DOLLING, we’ve discreetly managed several prominent new build projects and our management fleet has vessels in the Mediterranean, Russia and Asia. Both Nataliya and I utilise years of experience in our specialist fields to ensure every aspect of our operation surpasses our clients’ needs and expectations. When entrusted to find the right vessel at the right price, we have a global database with all the boats on the market – and some that are not! When marketing for sale, we have a large client database and always work on direct sales as our primary method, while promoting relentlessly within the brokerage community. Our ‘time taken to sell’ ratio is far lower than our competitors’ due to the extremely high level of effort we put into each of our listings until the job is done!” – Rob Dolling
Director of Charter
Nataliya Verpeka is one of the most highly regarded and commercially driven charter brokers in the superyacht industry. After working with some of the most prestigious charter firms in the business for a number of years, Nataliya decided to pour her wealth of charter experience and unique skill set into her own business, opening the doors of the VERPEKA Yacht Brokerage in 2010, before inviting Rob to join the boutique brokerage firm the following year.
“I established VERPEKA Yacht Brokerage in 2010 to answer the growing need for a boutique superyacht brokerage company that is completely dedicated to the client. Rob and I very much complement each other, following the client on the journey through all the technical and practical aspects of yachting. We’re very much focused on a personal approach to what we do here, and I pride myself on being a perfectionist. We live and breath the yachting business, and since the very beginning, accessibility to our clients has been of paramount importance. We take an active role in our charter and sales projects, and are proud to be one of the leading Monaco yacht charter and brokerage firms in the business.” – Nataliya Verpeka
