Summer News - June 2016

June 1st, 2016

The last six months have been very busy. Chris has just finished giving expert evidence in Finland in an Arbitration with Nautor Swan. He was also heavily involved in the issues concerning the loss of the recently salvaged Polina Star III. On a happier note we have recently been involved the purchase and sale of several yachts over 40 metres. Ian has attended various conferences and boat shows including trips to Barcelona and Palma, and the London Prestige Yacht car and Aircraft show. Malta Commercial registration and their Leasing Scheme keep us busy. Charter registration in Spain likewise. We now have the Brexit decision to challenge us!

Post Monaco Yacht Show 2015 I first attended MYS some ten years ago. W&M were just breaking into the larger yacht market. But Superyachts - No way! It was therefore with not inconsiderable pride that I observed six yachts moored alongside in the show that we have either surveyed or managed the build of during the course of the last 12 months. The yachts were between 30 - 50m. Who would have thought it!?

Welcome to our new Superyacht Consulting website

August 1st, 2015

As far as News is concerned we can best start with a review of what has been a very interesting and busy 2015. On the Survey front we have inspected some very large yachts including a “Classic” 100m, an Italian built 134m, the largest Sunseeker and several other yachts in the 30 – 60m range. As far as New Builds/Refits are concerned we had our first job at the prestigious Feadship yard and are supervising the refit of 37m yacht closer to home in Southampton. Of particular interest have been investigations into the loss of an Oyster 825, foundering of a CNB 50 and trying to resolve New Build disputes in respect of a large Dutch built motor yacht and a 90’ sailing yacht. Underwriters also continue to keep us busy.
