Following the winding up of Rodriguez in July, Camper & Nicholsons International has released a statement to say that the company is now under new ownership.

As reported by SB earlier this month, the yacht brokerage has been sold to Colosseum Services SA, an investment vehicle of a Swiss-based family office.

The transaction was initiated by Brook Hazelton, ex-CEO of Phillips, the international art auction house, and Eric de Saintdo, ex-CEO of Camper & Nicholsons International and of the Cannes Yachting Festival.

In early 2014, they partnered with Colosseum Services to secure the financial backing necessary to complete the acquisition.

“Despite the turmoil of the global financial crisis, Camper & Nicholsons International has always remained solid, which demonstrates the strength of our business and brand,” says COO Laurent Perignon. “We are now delighted to have new investors committed to growing and developing the Camper & Nicholsons International brand into the future.

“In particular it is pleasing that our new shareholders have a long and proud history, sharing the same outlook and values that have made Camper & Nicholsons the standard in superyacht brokerage and management services.”
