Yachts

The combination of Bentleys' commercial shipping experience and our international connections makes us ideally placed to advise on yacht and superyacht related matters. Our dedicated yacht team is further strengthened by a former world champion sailor and Yachtmaster who, having also worked on superyachts, has virtually unrivalled practical knowledge and experience of the yachting world.

New build, sale and purchase, finance

We are regularly instructed by owners, shipyards and financial institutions to advise on sale and purchase agreements, new building contracts, finance agreements, and mortgage arrangements.

Yacht management and operations

Bentleys can guide owners on issues relating to yacht registration, flag state and maritime regulations such as SOLAS, ISM and the Maritime Labour Convention. We provide contract reviews for charter terms. At the end of, or between seasons, we can advise on and assist with negotiating refit contracts and insurance. With our experience in shipping and transport, we advise on logistics contracts for yachts or equipment.

Personal injury

We have a dedicated personal injury manager in the event of personal accident, whether crew or guest.

Bentleys have considerable experience in litigation, arbitration and mediation. We handle all types of disputes ranging from transactional and shipbuilding disputes to charter and contractual disputes. We are regularly instructed in relation to insurance claims and disputes, and are used to dealing with multi-jurisdictional problems.
