Yvonne Smyth has joined Guernsey-based Bachmann Group’s Yachting Division with immediate effect.

Smyth joins Bachmann Yachts with specialist knowledge of yacht registration and ownership structures, skills that are particularly relevant to the company’s activities in the luxury yacht management sector.

“Many people will already know Eve, as she comes to us with an established background in the industry, and has developed a reputation for being very customer focused,” says Bachmann’s head of yachting Gary Le Cras.

“She has a proven track record in financial services as well as familiarisation with the various agencies across multi jurisdictions. All of this experience is required to successfully administer the total yacht management and corporate ownership demands of our clients.”

Smyth has a Diploma in Offshore Finance and Administration from Guernsey Business School and has worked as a Trust Administrator responsible for a portfolio of high net worth clients, followed by eight years in client services for yacht management.

The Bachmann Group’s Yachting Division currently has over 30 yachts under management. The company has a 40-year background in maritime services, handling yacht registrations, purchases, sales and yacht ownership structuring, both for EU and non-EU owners.
