Corporate Yacht Ownership

Corporate Yacht Ownership

Bachmann Yachts understands that each owner has an individual approach to owning and operating yachts.

With our extensive knowledge and expertise, we will manage the whole experience for you. From acquisition to disposal, expertly and discreetly as we have done so for over 20 years.

In today’s fast moving world, the protection and privacy of the yacht owner and their personal assets is of the greatest importance.

Yacht owners frequently decide to incorporate a limited liability company to take legal ownership of their yacht, providing an effective way to mange its ownership and operation.  In doing so, this provides protection from other business and personal affairs to which the management of the yacht may operate, including contracting crew, suppliers, insurance, berthing and other running costs.

Such companies are mainly set up either in British Offshore Terri­tories, namely Guernsey, Jersey, the BVI, or onshore in the UK. These juris­dic­tions provide a well estab­lished, regulated, and stable framework in addition to operating some of the worlds leading yacht registers.

Bachmann Yachts are able to incorporate and operate yacht owning and yacht management companies in all mentioned juris­dic­tions, including the provision of directors, secretary, nominee shareh­olders, registered office and agent.

Our yacht owning companies may be used for yachts both in private or charter use, for owners from any part of the world wishing to sail any of the worlds oceans.­  The choice of juris­dic­tion for yacht owning and yacht management companies is influenced by many factors;­ Bachmann Yachts will provide guidance and support working alongside an owners family office or advisors.

Bachmann Yachts is authorised and regulated in all areas of yacht operation, enabling us to provide an in-house all encom­passing service to our clients, including yacht regis­tra­tion services, crew employment &­ payroll, safety &­ security management and yacht admi­nis­tra­tion.
