Internationally recognised yacht management firm YCO has bolstered its brokerage division with the recruitment of three chartered brokers shortly due to join their London team.

Hume Jones, Nick Heming and Tamsin Priestly, formerly of Camper & Nicholsons, have extensive experience in the superyacht industry and will work alongside Alisha McDonald who joined YCO in 2009 from another leading brokerage firm.

Gary Wright, managing partner and group executive of YCO, said: “Since founding YCO in 2004 we have invested heavily in creating efficient, reliable and professional systems by which to operate our yacht brokerage and management services and we’re pleased that our reputation is now attracting key industry players to YCO.”

“Hume, Nick and Tamsin are three of the leading charter brokers in the industry. So naturally we’re delighted to have them joining the YCO team soon.”

Monaco-based YCO provides sales, purchase, charter and project management services to the luxury yacht industry. With teams operating from the UK, France and the Gulf, YCO is also recognised as an innovator in the superyacht industry, recently launching its own online yacht management software YCO Live and the first ever Ipad brokerage application.
