Long respected member of the yachting community Peter Croke passes away


Peter Croke, a well known and long respected member of the world-wide yachting community, passed away Friday at the age of 62 following a courageous battle with cancer.

A native of Australia, Peter's interest in yachting began with Fastlane Boats which in turn led him to accepting a position as the Marketing Director of Lloyd Ship in the U.S. Peter then took on the chief role of marketing and development at Norship prior to taking position of International Sales and Marketing Director at Oceanco. Peter joined Merle Wood & Associates as Managing Director in 1997.

Peter lived his life to the fullest, believing everyone should "Make the most out of every day of your life." As each of us take a moment to reflect on our own personal memories of Peter, in lieu of bowing our heads in silence, please look up, raise a glass of red, and toast to Peter. Peter will be dearly missed by all.

Peter is survived by his wife Vicki, sons Simon & Nathan, and his grandchildren Luke & Kylie.
