Our Team

Multifaceted, professional and informed on every aspect of superyacht sales, charter, marketing and management, our global team encompasses 26 nationalities, 23 languages, and a vast portfolio of expertise. What unites us is our passion for yachting and for excellence. There is little in the world of yacht charter that our teams have not encountered and their capabilities in dealing with every request are unrivalled. Skilled at negotiating the best rates for clients, creating unforgettable itineraries, and ensuring the smooth running of events, they draw on personal knowledge from the worlds of business, Grand Prix management, PR & advertising and superyacht crew, with a natural propensity to over-deliver.

Integrity and experience are the hallmarks of our sales and management teams, whose individual qualities and knowledge ensure that we can offer a uniquely tailored service to our clients. Their backgrounds have a distinctly maritime or daring leaning, from superyacht captains and engineers, to naval commanders, global explorers, hot air balloon pilots, competitive sailors, sportsmen and business entrepreneurs. There is no one size fits all in the superyacht world, and our diverse team offers a truly individual service to our clients.
