We specialize in large yachts from pedigree builders

Yacht purchase & charter requires expertise. We bring  expertise while assuring that your yachting experience is enjoyable.

Let us find the right yacht for you

We know the builders and the yachts

Yacht builders are as diverse as are auto makers. You need to know the strengths and philosophy of each builder. Pedigree counts - not only in choosing a vessel, but when you sell and hope to recoup your capital investment.

We match the yacht to your mission.

Do you plan to cross oceans and explore globally? Or, will you only cruise the Med? Is this for friends and family, or is it a corporate tool requiring scaleable hospitality and entertainment capabilities?

How we assist

I apply my 25-years of valuable experience and knowledge of vessels to analyze the current market and to identify vessels that are right for you and your mission. My goal is to find the right yacht, and make sure you get it for a fair price. I also stay with you for crewing and to get yacht management set up. 

The company we keep

We are uniquely positioned in the yachting community, with an international focus few brokerage houses can match.

Working with the right yacht broker gives you the ability to have an industry insider fighting for your best interests. Having peace of mind at the closing table, being protected throughout the delicate steps of the yacht-buying process, and having access to all the right yachting professionals and vendors is only the beginning.

Choosing the right broker does make a difference.

Yacht brands matter

There is a reason that very few yacht builders survive over time. Quality and owner service wins, and that is the basis for brand. Brand translates into owner enjoyment and vessel value. The top brands retain their value over time when they are maintained and regularly upgraded. 

I know the brands. I have represented top European builders and have assisted my clients in the acquisition, pleasurable ownership, and recoupment of capital (sale) on a number of notable yachts.
