R.I.P. Sharon Torrens of Grant Torrens International Marine

Australian Sovereign Islands resident Sharon Torrens, wife of superyacht broker Grant Torrens & loving mother of son Mitchell passed away peacefully in the early hours of January 10th 2011 after nine weeks in a coma in the intensive care unit at Allamanda Hospital.

As a Director of Australia’s largest international motor yacht brokerage, Grant Torrens International Marine, Sharon has received international acclaim from her peers. Her husband and business partner Grant believes she was the reason their company reached the number One ranking as Australia’s largest luxury motor yacht brokerage.

Sharon lost her original kidney in the early 80s & has undergone 2 major kidney transplants in the last 25 years. Her proudest moment was giving birth to her only child and son Mitchell.

Mitchell was the first baby born in Australia to a kidney transplant recipient as they put the new transplant in the front of her stomach which made the obvious dangers of having a baby very real. Mitchell was born very healthy, now nearing his 21st birthday and plays an integral part as a yacht broker at Grant Torrens International Marine.

Approximately 9 weeks ago Sharon was admitted again to hospital, her condition having deteriorated and she was moved into the intensive care unit suffering acute renal failure, pneumonia, lung and stomach infections and also a heart attack.

Sharon is survived by her husband Grant and son Mitchell.
