We are a friendly and knowledgeable team, passionate about the support of our owners
and crew. We do our utmost to ensure the smooth running of the yacht.


Working as a team, we do our utmost to ensure that every aspect of yacht ownership runs smoothly.

“After years of chartering, we were first-time yacht owners when we were introduced to McMaster Yachts. James and his team provided invaluable advice to us during the purchase of our 37m sloop. They secured a top-notch captain and crew, and coordinated an extensive and time-sensitive re-fit. They have also handled the accounting, bank accounts, safety compliance and itinerary management, freeing us up to simply enjoy the yacht. McMaster Yachts have played a crucial role in our ownership, helping us to make informed operational decisions. We would heartily recommend them to anyone seeking professional, courteous yacht management.”



"Levanter Limited has been a satisfied client of McMaster Yachts for the past three years.
The firm is very efficient in dealing with the myriad requirements of a large yacht, particularly in the area of crews and captains. They have excellent contacts in this field, and contribute greatly to the peaceful operation of the vessel. McMaster Yachts also support wintering and refit activities in a pro-active manner, ensuring smooth preparation and execution of
agreed programmes. Their administrative and accounting services are first class,
and fit well into other corporate structures.
Levanter Limited has no hesitation in recommending them for the management
of a large sailing yacht. "


"I have worked with James since January 2003. James handled my purchase of the original RED DRAGON, after which I appointed him as Yacht Manager. One of his first jobs was to select a captain for RED DRAGON. My captain has remained with me ever since. James has been responsible for all aspects of operational support for both the 43 metre and my new 52 metre RED DRAGON and I am delighted with his highly effective management of my yacht(s)."
