NJ Thailand office grows

ADVERTISEMENT

Hans Doodkorte has joined Northrop & Johnson as a sales broker in the company’s Phuket, Thailand, office.

Doodkorte, a native of Perth, Australia, began his yachting career as a deckhand on two Oceanfast yachts in the Whitsundays. He later became an engineer, then took on the two-year refit of a large sailing yacht at Royal Huisman Shipyard in the Netherlands. That yacht became his first command as captain after receiving his 3,000-ton master’s license in 1999.

Following a circumnavigation, Doodkorte managed five new-build projects of 164 feet (50m) to 230 feet (70m) at various shipyards, including Feadship and Heesen in Holland. Having spent many years visiting Asia and seeing the new infrastructure and growth in the local industry, he has decided to make Phuket his second home.
