Cobli: The Art of Ownership

Cobli: The Art of Ownership


Having imported hundreds of boats into Australia and New Zealand, Peter Hrones and John Cowpe felt that the time was right for an importer to bring to the table an offering for high-end equity share ownership. In doing so, they are developing an offering for bespoke fractional ownership opportunities, high-end service, and only the very latest and best products available on the market.

The two have been involved in the equity ownership model for many years and have supported several businesses in their efforts. In fact, one of the very first models in the marketplace was developed by Peter. “It feels good to now come full circle and launch Cobli”, he says.


Peter and John represent some of the world’s most prestigious on-water brands including Lagoon, Axopar and Pardo Yachts, each of which are exclusively sold through Eyachts and The Multihull Group. As such, clients of Cobli can look forward to a wide range of exclusive ownership opportunities.

Cobli’s product offerings are curated to make sense — from the latest catamarans based between Sydney and the Whitsunday islands to high-end day boats for entertaining and enjoyment on Sydney Harbour and beyond. Cobli even allows clients to access the very top end of town with ownership opportunities in the incredible Lagoon Seventy8 Motor Yacht.


Over the years, the founders have received owners’ feedback suggesting that many syndication companies are offering too many shares and therefore miss out on spending time aboard during the warmer seasons and special events. Cobli therefore is offering limited shares of between 4-6 owners, maximising time on the water.


All vessels under Cobli will be managed and maintained to the highest of standards so owners don’t need to worry about anything. The founders have developed a state-of-the-art booking system to remove friction from the process.


Vessels will be brought in from new, and exited in good time to maximise a high resale value. This means more equity is returned to owners who can then choose to continue on to the latest model or move to full ownership.

Cobli will launch with products available on a limited basis in NSW with annual exhibitions to the Whitsundays.
