Jason Zamparutti


My passion is everything to do with the marine industry.

My first paying job was cleaning yacht hulls in Brisbane Marinas on weekends, since then working on or around yachts and boats has been my lifelong Career.

After spending my teens and early 20s working on fishing vessels and coastal commercial vessels around Australia and PNG, a friend and I sailed from PNG to Indonesia and then onto Thailand where I operated small sailing charter yachts and later was introduced to the Super Yacht industry.

After traveling to Ft Lauderdale I landed a job as a deckhand in a super yacht and quickly moved up to Captain, cruising the Mediterranean, SE Asia and crossed the Atlantic several times on Sailing and Motor Yachts.

Wanting to further my career I returned to Australia to complete my Master Unlimited COC. I spent 3 years as Captain on an expedition cruise ship sailing the Kimberlie’s, North Queensland, PNG, Solomon’s, Noumea and New Zealand.

Recently I moved into the offshore Industry and worked for several companies managing up to 40 ships and 500 seafarers. Here I became involved in the sales and purchase of commercial vessels. It was a new challenge and my experience both onshore and offshore was of value to the process.

My father Gary has been in the marine industry and yacht brokerage all his life, It was a natural next step to join him in Yacht Sales DownUnder and capitalize on my yachting and commercial background.

Marketing and Listings - Thailand

I spent the first 12 years of my life at sea on my families Cargo and Fishing vessels in Papua New Guinea. So like the rest of the family, I have sea water in my veins. My mum and dad took me sailing on amazing catamarans on the Queensland East Coast, a few laps of the Whitsundays, Bali and Thailand. So I get it!
My working life has been in Sales, in the Leisure market with Wyndham Destinations and it’s taken me around the world working with them for 7 years. 
I have lived in Thailand for the last 4 years and  for the last 2 my business partner and I  have owned and operated a Digital Marketing Agency , Hampton Marketing Solutions.
Our clientele is based on the amazing beaches and islands of Thailand, so business always keeps me on the water.
I am looking forward to acquiring listings here in Thailand for Yacht Sales DownUnder.
