Yacht brokerage and management company YCO has announced the arrival of Neil Cheston as the company’s new director of sales and charter.

Cheston brings not only his expertise in this field, but also the advantage of his experience as former president of MYBA and his current position as chairman of the MYBA sales committee.

Cheston’s arrival coincides with that of senior charter brokers Hume Jones, Nick Heming and Tamsin Priestley, who also joined the YCO London team earlier in December after 15 years each at Camper & Nicholsons International.

“We are delighted to welcome such strong additions to YCO in Neil, Hume, Nick and Tamsin. The years of experience and combined knowledge they bring will be invaluable and we look forward to the continual development of our brokerage and charter divisions in 2011,” says Gary Wright, managing partner at YCO.
