Tony Ross - Managing Director

After some time naval gazing, Tony Ross decided what it was he wished to be doing with his life.  It was a decision to get back to a childhood dream of building a yacht that led him into the marine industry and the Gold Coast.

Taking a year to construct a 50’ Schooner “Carolina”, Tony did the majority of the work with his own hands.  Whilst this was good for the soul, he realised he could have his cake and eat it too, so with a strong sales and marketing background and a burning desire to be in the marine industry, he purchased the majority of shares in Ensign Ship Brokers in 2004.

Today, with over 20 years of experience in the boating industry, it is Tony Ross’s tenacious commitment to ethical business standards that ensures you are dealing with an exceptional businessman renowned for results and the ultimate growth of Australia’s largest boat brokerage.

Despite the economic climate, the last few years have been a time of rapid growth for Ensign Ship Brokers in the marine industry.  The next few years also promise to be exciting times with selling rights for some of the world’s most prestigious brands including Bavaria, IAG Yachts, Rhea, McConaghy Yachts, Hershein and Voyager Power Catamarans.

Now Australia’s leading brokerage with seven offices Australia wide and satellite offices in Korea, Singapore, China and another slated for Malaysia in 2012, Tony and his specialist team of brokers are synonymous with achieving outstanding results for clients and repeat customers.

Ensign educates clients on how to use and care for their boats and that service extends well into the future of these relationships.

Tony has also ensured that Ensign is an all-encompassing brokerage. With international contacts, Ensign can foster a seamless purchase of overseas vessels including sourcing, inspecting, marine surveys, purchasing, registration transfers, insurance, delivery and importation.

A passionate sailor and owner of many sizes and styles of vessel, he is actively involved in the marine industry community and sits on the committee of Marine Queensland.

Tony is looking to make Ensign Ship Brokers the leading brokerage in the world, and he doesn’t measure that in monetary value, but in buyer and seller satisfaction.


 Peter Moloney


Gold Coast born and bread and the "Old Salt" of the crew, Peter 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 has since fostered some very successful sales. 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.

"My boating experience started as a kid sailing on a little VJ and cruising on the family yacht.  I have owned and skippered a number of motor boats and yacht.  In more recent years I have been racing out of Southport in the Twilight and Offshore racing as well as competing in Brisbane to Gladstone, as well as Airlie Beach and Hamilton Island race weeks.  I have had a number of businesses with a high customer contact and service.  With a boating, business and sales background Ensign is a perfect fit with my experience.  Located at the Main Beach office I can help sell your boat or help you find that vessel that is the right fit for you."

Jay Lancaster

Jay’s passion for the ocean started at a very young age growing up surfing on the Gold Coast.

This love of surfing lead Jay into a career as a surf videographer and it wasn’t long before international surf wear brand Billabong, asked him to join the team and develop their in-house Audio Visual Department. He spent three and a half years with Billabong honing his marketing skills and travelling the world creating movies and advertising material. During this time Jay worked on surf charter boats throughout Indonesia and realised how incredible it feels to spend time on the water.

Jay decided to leave the position to spend more time at home and with his love of people and desire for a new challenge he started selling real estate. Back on the Gold Coast boating became much more of his life and so did his desire to get involved with the boating industry.

Though mutual friends Jay met Tony and Marianne from Ensign and the opportunity to combine his love for sales, marketing and boats was there, so he took it and has never looked back.

As a broker Jay sets himself apart from the pack with his high level marketing but his true value to his clients is his passion for people, boats and the lifestyle that it brings...whether you’re buying, selling or just enjoying your boat, Jay will be there to help.
