Yachtzoo, the full service yacht brokerage company with offices in Monaco and Fort Lauderdale, has entered the Asian market with the launch of Yachtzoo Tokyo.
Nigel Beatty, who has been with Yachtzoo since early 2015, was recently joined by Kenta Inaba at the point of establishing the company’s satellite operation in Japan at the end of 2016.
The purpose of Yachtzoo Tokyo is both to promote a range of yachts to the Japanese market, as well as to add to Yachtzoo’s growing fleet of large yachts listed within Japan itself, encouraging both local charter and ownership.
Beyond the immediate market in Japan, the Yachtzoo Tokyo team is in place to work with buyers and yacht owners at a regional level.
Based in Japan, Inaba is an experienced designer and businessman. Beatty is an active member of the region’s yachting industry and currently chairs the Asia Pacific Superyacht Association.
“We are thrilled to be formally launching our yacht brokerage activities in Japan with Yachtzoo Tokyo, and I look forward to working with Kenta Inaba to develop this market further,” says Beatty.
“Japan itself has had a well-developed infrastructure for large yachts for many decades, and being the third largest economy in the world, plus a magnificent cruising grounds throughout its almost 7,000 islands, this is a perfect place to begin Yachtzoo’s expansion into Asia,” Beatty concludes.
