THIS IS US

COMMON SENSE FOR
UNCOMMON WEALTH

Why is it that, while we can innovate, build strong businesses and drive economies forward, our voice as yacht owners remains so quiet? Sure, our brokers, managers and captains have our backs, but they’ve got their hands full. Who’s there to take a high-level view of ownership? Who’s there to provide guidance so we’re not each taking advice and reinventing the wheel? Who’s drafting the agreements and documents we have to have in place? Shouldn’t we be working together? Yes. It’s common sense.

I can’t believe we’re all taking advice on pretty much the same things – crew employment, taxes, etc. It’s great to see owners and their reps come together like this.

FROM
COMPETITION
TO COOPERATION

It all started with a chance meeting between two owners. Sitting on the rail of a Superyacht Cup competitor, they wondered why yachts were subject to so much regulation. Protecting seafarers on large ships, many of the complex rules are arbitrary and inconsistent when applied to smaller vessels. Could this be put right? Yes, if only we, the owners, could speak with one voice. And if coming together, let's share best practice, rather than seek expensive advice at every turn. And why not pool our considerable buying power to negotiate discounts?

It’s a huge honour to be appointed. Having had many owners and managers as clients over the years, I am only too aware of the issues which need to be addressed.

TRUSTED
PROFESSIONAL
CLUB SECRETARIAT

We considered it important to have a regulated professional managing the Club and organising its affairs. After much deliberation, we appointed an English lawyer as our General Secretary. He is a Partner at a leading international firm, regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority, the Financial Conduct Authority and the London Stock Exchange. The General Secretary’s role is to operate the Club at a high level, undertake research, provide guidance and draft the documents and agreements essential to yacht acquisition and ownership. Naturally used to maintaining client confidence, he has also provided expertise on the law and practice of yacht ownership to leading publications and broadcasters, including:
