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 classification.

This foresight has subsequently been acknowledged by the number of SOLAS yachts built since.
