Team Cooper Profile

Cooper Chapman

Founder & Managing Director

Born with a deep passion for boating and raised in the Australian marine industry from the age of 4, Cooper Chapman is a commercially endorsed Captain and Engineer with decades of experience in commercial operations, luxury yachting, vessel management and service, special events, consulting and sourcing yachts on behalf of boat owners. Cooper founded and established Chapman Yacht Management, now Chapman Yachting, in 2008. As Cooper heads the Chapman network into its 14th year of operation, he boasts a fully integrated, cost-effective and efficient platform which provides yacht owners and operators with a revolutionary means of operating their yacht. This is without the need for full-time crew and at a fraction of the typical fees. This management and yacht operations model has taken the full length of his career to develop and is completely transparent, reliable, and exceeds industry expectations on all levels.

Cooper believes this model will revolutionise the way luxury motor yachts are operated in the future. Outside of the core yacht management and service business which Chapman was built on, Cooper also heads the development and operation of the charter, recruitment and sales divisions which he believes will complete the full-circle offerings of the Chapman family and offer clients a true one-stop solution for all their yachting requirements. As Cooper says, “Our approach, our people, our relationships, our knowledge of the industry and our ability to deliver solutions to yacht owners, yacht crew, charter clients and marine operators is what separates us from the rest of the Australian market.”

Cooper plans to continue leading the industry in this line of work and delivering the Chapman promise of the highest standards achievable in all aspects of Australian Yachting.
