Private yachts

A team of experts who can assist with every stage of superyacht ownership, from new build or purchase contracts through setting up ownership structures, dealing with registrations,  arrangements to sell on and everything in between

Our team of dedicated specialists act primarily for high net worth individuals, providing advice on all aspects of superyacht ownership, including advising on and negotiating construction contracts, sale and purchase agreements and asset financing arrangements. We also assist with vessel registration and the incorporation of corporate structures to own the vessel. We work closely with our client's advisors and their captain during the term of ownership, assisting as necessary with matters relevant to the day to day operation of the yacht.

We have a strong network of contacts within the industry to draw on to facilitate all of your superyacht needs, from management, tax and accounting services to brokerage and new build or refit design and specification.

If problems arise, we have a specialist arbitration and litigation practice to provide practical advice and take matters through to resolution.

Our strong international presence enables us to work for and on behalf of clients all over the world.
