Why Choose 8 Yachts? Find Out Below
We only work with 8 owners because this is the maximum number of yachts to which the two Founders can provide hands on, direct management themselves. This limit ensures that we maintain our proactive, bespoke and industry leading levels of service. Anything more would dilute the depth of service and savings that we offer to our owners.
8 Yachts only provides yacht management services. We don’t broker or charter. Why? Because it means we have no conflicts of interest and can manage your yacht with only your best interests in mind.
Our hands on approach to management means we go the extra mile to ensure our clients get real value from the fees that they pay. We go into the fine details to reduce ownership costs across the board.
Our owner management fees are the only revenue we make. We choose to work with the best professionals in the business, but we do not take ‘kick backs’, referral fees or any other form of commission. Any discounts we negotiate are passed through to the owner and when we make a referral, we are making it with your best intentions at heart.
We don’t sit back and wait for problems to happen, we actively manage your yacht to ensure that we foresee issues well in advance and can mitigate any problems before they become serious. We represent our owners and protect the asset that is their yacht.
We have extensive yacht management experience; we have also served as superyacht captains and have plenty of hands on project management experience from new builds and refits. This means we have a 360 degree perspective on yacht management, ranging from selecting the best yards for builds, to planning cruising itineraries through the San Blas Islands.
Why we are different
Our hands on management approach means you’ll see benefits and cost savings from the start. At 8 Yachts, the two co-founders manage a maximum of eight yachts between them, meaning yacht owners typically get over three times as much time and focus compared to other yacht management companies.
Our experience has shown managing eight boats means we go into the details that other managers are unable to. The result? We can show how our work has resulted in typical savings of 30% on running costs. That’s not possible when managing ten boats per manager like some within the industry.
We don’t have waterfront Monaco Offices and won’t be sending out leather bound coffee table books to brokers and potential clients. With lower overheads we pass savings on to the owners we represent, meaning our monthly fees are usually less than the competition.
