Without Richard's professionalism, experience and knowledge we would have not been able to enjoy the procurement, management and chartering of our yacht. His integrity and honest approach makes LYS simply the only option for all yacht owners and future yacht owners to consider. They are simply the best there is.

With insight that spans all aspects of the Superyacht industry, we have the know-how to deliver the individual needs of each and every client.
Now that I am the proud owner of Mary Jean, the advice and support from Richard and his team have been hugely valuable. Whether it is considering an offer from a prospective charterer, pricing a new crane or replacing a catalytic converter, I really would be lost without the analysis, business contacts and commercial acumen that LYS bring to their area of specialist knowledge.

LYS has been consistently delivering innovative solutions to its clients over the past decade. Whether that be a dedicated new build team, purchasing a new yacht, developing in-house management systems or simply offering trusted advice.
Richard acted as my Owners Representative during the build of my 47m motor yacht at ISA. As my Representative he proved to be very conscientious and looked after my interests throughout the specification review and build stages very well. With his technical ability and overall knowledge of yacht systems being very useful in getting the best for the build. It was a pleasure to have him work for me and I would have no hesitation in recommending his services for your owner's new build project.

We were pleased to work with Richard and his team on the refit of a 70m yacht. Their knowledge and experience contributed significantly to the successful completion of the project. They were particularly helpful in simplifying complicated technical issues and ensuring efficient administration of the project in order to meet the client's exacting requirements.

Each of our clients' needs will differ, therefore we specialise in providing a tailor-made service to fulfil
our clients' individual requirements in Management, New Build, Purchase or Charter.
From the perspective owners acting in a fiduciary capacity, I feel that LYS has developed a real 'value added' to its already excellent superyacht consultancy and management service by taking the trouble to really understand our role as Trustees and company directors of companies that own superyachts. In particular, we receive regular and clear communication upon those elements that are particularly important to us in respect of our obligations (financial and otherwise) in owning such valuable, and in many respects, complex assets. It goes without saying that efficient 'behind the scenes' day to day management is to the highest quality to ensure that any passenger, whether beneficial owners or third party charters, will enjoy a seamless five star quality holiday onboard.
