Unlike any other multi-million dollar industry we are
aware of, the large yacht market is characterised
by a large degree of opaqueness with regards to
achieved sales prices, values and market activity
throughout the different market sub-sectors in the
sales and charter markets.
We are in the information business - our in-depth and ground breaking research and analysis by
Fergus Torrance, a former Leisure Sector
Research Analyst at the leading Investment Bank
Kleinwort Benson, allows us to spot trends and has
been instrumental in assisting our clients to make
informed decisions about their yachting activities,
whether it be buying, selling, building or
positioning themselves in the charter market.
For instance, the 68 page report into the 120ft plus charter market
written by Fergus Torrance in 1998, compiled from 100% raw data,
noted the lack of 12 plus guest charter yachts operating under SOLAS
standards in the charter market. This finding combined with other
original market data in the report directly led to the client
proceeding with the rebuild of Christina O to the demanding SOLAS
This foresight has subsequently been acknowledged by the number of SOLAS yachts built since.
