About Us

Our principal waterfront sales offices are directly on the Superyacht Quai in the marina of Port Camille Rayon, Golfe Juan on the French Riviera. Located at the heart of the yachting world this superb "shop window" ensures premium high visibility exposure in a very upscale environment and is superbly situated between Cannes & Antibes less than 30 Minutes from Nice International airport and within easy reach of Monaco and the Italian Riviera. 

We feel that having a direct retail space and prime window frontage increases our direct contact with owner's, Captains, and potential owners of Superyachts.

Every notable charter yacht in the Western Med berths near our offices in Port Camille Rayon at some time during the season as do many of the world largest superyachts.

Our London Office is based in the prestigious business district of Mayfair with Heathrow, Gatwick and City airport within easy reach. London's position as a leading World financial hub ensures access to the high-net-Worth Global Elite that purchase and own Superyachts.

From these locations we operate throughout the rest of the world within a network of International correspondents in locations including Athens, Dubrovnik, Fort Lauderdale, Geneva, Peking, Hong Kong and Singapore.  Extensive relationships and market knowledge that reach across continents, languages, and time zones.

Marketing to the International Brokerage Community

 A large proportion of successful yacht sales involve two brokers. Therefore, we concentrate on maintaining excellent relations with all other brokerage houses.

Our company policy is to market your yacht to all qualified international yacht brokerage companies, as well as direct marketing to our own clients and to the open market.

Details of our Central Agency yachts, including brochures and specifications are distributed to our clients and in-house brokers alike, as well as to all corresponding brokers worldwide.

Bespoke Marketing

Every yacht is unique and different types of boat appeal to a different clientele. The “one size fits all” approach does not always work in the International boat market and may see your unique Superyacht laying on the market for many months or years.

The clientele for a steel hulled displacement explorer yacht for example is quite different to that of a maxi open composite planning hulled sports yacht.

We will  identify the unique selling points of your yacht and will then put together a personalised marketing campaign to ensure timely results.

Often our first job is to identify why an owners yacht has not sold and to re-organise the process.

Quality, not Quantity

Your yacht will not be lost amongst the others in a huge list of yachts.

Our brokerage team limit the amount of central Agency Yachts that we represent and carefully select the luxury yachts that we wish to dedicate our time to. It will receive the attention and service that it rightly deserves. We prefer to give exceptional service to a small number of clients and to represent featured yachts that we can devote our full attention to ensure a successful sale. Our goal is to sell yachts not just list them.

Reactivity and Availability

Our brokers are available for both buyers and sellers 24 hours a day 7 days a week and throughout all public and religious holidays.

We act fast and reply quickly.If we receive an enquiry it is answered in minutes. Not days.

We believe that it is better to be fast than big and that Superyacht brokers should be reactive and available to their clients at all times.

Teamwork

Our emphasis as brokers is on team-work, partnership and the sharing of yacht market  information and knowledge.

The structure of most, large brokerage corporations is that their brokers all work alone as independent contractors under a corporate umbrella. Instead we prefer to combine our knowledge and effort and work in unison to ensure that information is shared and that our clients receive the highest level of service.

Integrated approach

Perhaps your yacht has been for sale for some time with another brokerage company with no result?

If the price is right, the marketing is right, and if there is no "conflict of interest" your yacht should sell.

Our international yacht sales team are renowned for an integrated approach which includes dealing where applicable with your Captain, Family office, Yacht Manager or Owners Representative in order that all involved work together with the same goal and that all parties are focused on co-operating to ensuring a timely sale.

Screening

We consider correctly filtering and identifying visitors to yachts that we represent for sale to be extremely important. Not only so that we spend time dealing with the right people but also for the security of your yacht and her crew.

Proper planning by brokers is critical to presenting the yacht in the best way possible and we strive to make sure this is the way every inspection goes. Last minute inspections are generally not supported unless we know the broker and client to be very knowledgeable and qualified. We like to see the yacht presented in her best possible light.

Reporting

Each and every month our clients receive a full report detailing every enquiry, client visit, broker visit, inspection and viewing with detailed feedback.

As with any major business transaction our aim is to ensure that you have the most accurate data possible to ensure that you make informed decisions.
