About SuperYachtsMonaco

Leave Nothing to Chance

SuperYachtsMonaco specialises in the sale, purchase and charter of yachts of all sizes. Headquartered in Monaco, our very experienced and dedicated team operates globally.

We established our yacht brokerage in 2008 in response to growing demand for a company with a simplified approach and strong personal relationships. These attributes are at the heart of our daily business. We offer clear, professional advice and help to make sense of a complex market. You can expect a consistent, individualised service from skilled people with extensive knowledge of the market. We pride ourselves on providing a quick reaction to enquiries and on finding intelligent solutions to difficult problems. In every instance, we understand that clients want to see optimisation and efficiency in what we do. Our specific sales expertise is in the brokerage of existing yachts, as well as new yacht construction contracts. In the representation of individual yachts for sale or construction, we maintain a realistic inventory to ensure that we can provide the necessary level of attention needed to do an exceptional job. For yacht charters, SuperYachtsMonaco is a leading agent, representing some of the world's largest and most exclusive yachts. Our charter specialists create tailor-made holidays on yachts cruising in every corner of the world. In any and all, we offer serious insight and guidance on every kind of yacht, including those considered to be off-market and inaccessible.
