ABOUT ENSIGN COMMERCIAL
Due to constant and increasing demand for commercial vessels such as ships, barges, ferries, trawlers and other business-attached commercial vessels, Ensign has created a separate division that specializes in the sales and sourcing of vessels for businesses from parasailing and whale watching to seismic research ships.
Ensign strives to be the best, most informed and regarded brokerage in the world. In doing so, it is vital that we do more than just list and market boats for sale. Ensign has people who understand the product we sell - people who have operated and run commercial vessels. We have a number of qualified commercial skippers on staff who have driven tankers and operated barges in many challenging environments, from evacuations to building resorts in remote locations. Experience is abound in the team regarding large ships and the fishing industry. A fully-qualified and experienced business REIQ-approved broker also operates to ensure we can sell and advise on the purchase and sale of entire marine businesses, such as tourist operations, houseboat fleets, river cruises and the like.
We have priced a number of Barges and Tugs that we have as standard and that indicate the value of our vessels, but we can also price the vessel to your specifications. Ensign staff are available to assist you with the design and specifications of your vessel. With the Design and Naval Architect virtually in-house, we can get a price back for your vessel within a very short time.
The vessel is being built at worldclass facilities and by efficient tradesmen that makes for minimum build time. Components used in the contruction are similar or the same as the ones used in Australia, making for easy repair or replacement. All equipment and components have been installed and carry global warranty by the manufacturers.

Peter Moloney, Gold Coast born and the "Old Salt" of the crew, gained early boating experience crewing charter boats in the Mediterranean in the seventies. After selling his business in 1980, Peter and some friends bought a 42' Chapelle Gaff Schooner and sailed it to Rhode Island for the successful Australian Americas Cup Challenge in 1983 as a prelude to cruising the Bahamas, Virgin Islands, Caribbean and adjoining areas for the next four years. After returning to Australia and with a couple of businesses behind him, Peter joined Ensign as a boat broker and along with the present co- owner, Tony's father, Jim, bought the long established business. Peter's cruising knowledge and experience is available to any potential customers, and he finds great personal satisfaction finding the right boat to suit the buyer, be it power, house or sail.
