I am passionate about my company and appreciate that the only thing that matters is the customer and servicing their needs to the best of my ability. I have a hands on approach with the business and don't fear mucking in when required. With a family history of Sailors it was really a natural progression for us to go down this route however I wanted to offer a very affluent full luxury service which is why we now have a range of luxury websites, with Luxury Properties, Luxury Yachts for sale, Private Jet Charters, Business Class Flights and Travel, Designer fashion and more.
