We offer highly-specialised bespoke Management Services.  Experts in the field, with over 30 years of industry experience, our yacht management is completely transparent and owner-centric, tailored in every case to the specific requirements of the individual yacht owner and his or her team.

Our management services can include: operational management, financial control and management, compliance with Class and Flag, insurance, crew recruitment, employment and administration, shore support, mini ISM, captain support, advice and general support services to the owner.

The number of yachts in our stable at any time is limited to less than fifteen, in order that every yacht, every owner and every crew under McMaster Yachts’ management receives a very personal and specialised service, with every detail taken care of.

Our close involvement with the day to day operation of the yacht makes us the logical choice to oversee the charter management and brokerage. Our roles can include responding to charter and brokerage enquiries, fiscal compliance, maintaining the yacht calendar, marketing of the yacht and boat show attendance.

We are members of the Mediterranean Yacht Brokers Association (MYBA).


We ensure compliance with legal safety regulations and can offer on board safety management systems.
This includes advice on travel plans, piracy and on board security as well as monitoring
legal safety regulations – MCA, ISM and ISPS compliance.

With experience of operating yachts in the Indian Ocean and other high risk areas,
we can provide sensible and practical advice.


Cost control is essential to all owners. We develop an annual budget. Expenditure is constantly monitored to keep costs within budget. Monthly financial reports are prepared and sent to the owner’s office. We can take control of all financial aspects of the yacht including dedicated client accounts and pre-paid credit cards.


The selection of crew appropriate to the owners, the yacht and the budget is a critical component to ensure enjoyment of the yacht. McMaster Yachts Crew, in conjunction with McMaster Yachts Crew Employment (a Lloyds approved MLC2006 compliant company), provides the full range of Seafarer recruitment and placement services to owners as well as to crew.


McMaster Yachts Crew welcomes CVs from experienced crew.
Please feel free to view placements and upload your CV on our crew placement dashboard.
