Fraser Yachts, a full-service yachting company based in Italy, has added two new sales brokers to its team. Craig Erickson has joined the Ft Lauderdale office in the US, while Alex Krykanyuk recently joined the Monaco office. Both brokers have considerable experience in the yachting industry, says the company.

Erickson initially started his career as a professional NFL footballer, playing for the Miami Dolphins and Chicago Bears among other teams during the 1990s. In 2001 he moved into yacht brokerage and joined Allied Richard Bertram Marine Group where he worked until joining Camper & Nicholsons four years ago. Erickson has sold numerous brokerage and new build yachts throughout his career and across a range of sizes.

Krykanyuk, originally from Ukraine, started his career in yachting in the 1990s and has worked as a yacht consultant, project manager and broker for Russian clients around the world for many years. He has represented clients in projects from 24m-105m for design, refit and new builds of both power and sailing yachts.

Fraser Yachts is said to be the world’s largest luxury yacht service provider, with over 140 employees and 14 offices around the globe. Services include yacht sales, charter, yacht management, crew and construction, specialising in yachts over 30m.

The company is part of Azimut-Benetti’s Yachtique division.
