It is regarded as the world’s Capital of Luxury Yachting, and in an initiative spearheaded by HSH Prince Albert II, Monaco has been intent on ensuring clients and visitors to the Principality receive nothing but outstanding service, advice and welcome from those businesses who have made Monaco their home. Yachting Partners International (YPI) is now pleased to announce it’s exclusive appointment as a certified ‘Monaco Welcome’ business for luxury yachting.

If the Global Financial Crisis in 2008 resulted in anything positive within the business of luxury yachting, it has to be the focus some of today’s leading brokers now place on super serving each and every client when helping guide them steadily and transparently through the process of owning, selling, building, managing or chartering a luxury yacht. With increased and more accurate market intelligence, a comprehensive knowledge of the yachts and the business of yachting itself and a more highly regulated market place, more clients today benefit from an informed and professional service than ever before.


Since becoming part of the 160 year-old worldwide shipping group, Barry Rogliano Salles (BRS) and indeed the industry from which almost all yachting regulations now emit, YPI has been equally intent on ensuring its long-held reputation for getting optimum results for its clients through an acute attention to detail, in-depth market knowledge and over 43 years of tried-and-tested know-how continues to be the most influential factor in clients choosing to work with and stay with the Group.

This level of welcome and service has now been recognised and certified by the Direction de l’Expansion Economique of Monaco.

“It is always heart-warming to be recognised for the hard work and endeavour your company, represented by each and every one of its dedicated employees, brings to conducting business with clients,” says YPI CEO, Philippe Hetland Brault. “In addition, our customer service and welcome was tested and put under scrutiny by the Principality without us even knowing - so it is a stamp of approval for a very genuine level of service and guidance provided by our team in our Monaco Head Office. Ultimately any luxury business is a business built between people. At YPI we pride ourselves in being small enough to be personal, big enough to make a difference and old enough to know how.”
