Yacht Brokerage & Charter:  At Yacht Partners we do not simply pull listings and present them to clients for consideration.  After client preferences and requirements are carefully discussed and identified, specific yachts are vetted for presentation and consideration.  In most instances, a Yacht Partners professional will personally visit and inspect a selected yacht prior to client introduction.   Any yacht presented to a Yacht Partners client will have been investigated by us to determine ownership, operational, and refit/repair history.  This preserves valuable personal time and effort for our clients and ensures that time allocated to yacht acquisition is utilized with maximum return.


Yacht Asset Acquisition and Divestiture:  Yacht operation involves the regular acquisition and divestiture of valuable component assets.  From tenders and water sports equipment to fine wine and exquisite art, Yacht Partners has the capability, references, and  resources to ensure that these transactions and transfers are safe, secure, and value-protected.
