Yacht-Match International rebrands itself and secures important dealerships & strategic partnerships


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: On Thursday, 17 November 2022

Yacht-Match Group

Rosmalen, the Netherlands.


Yacht-Match International (est 2016, Sweden), announces the launch of its three new business branches: Y-M Yachts & Brokerage; Yacht-Match Charter & Management, and Yacht-Match Propulsion.

The three new branches will operate under the branded house of Yacht-Match Group and continue to expand its services and market within the leisure marine industry as a total solution provider and specialist for private yacht ownership -and charter management and ownership.

The Yacht-Match Group is a collaboration among companies in the leisure marine industry and the luxury travel market that focuses on creating a key value chain of services and products for the prospective yacht buyer that can be selected from a piece of unbiased purchase advice and consultancy provided by Yacht-Match and its partners.

The group consists of companies that operate on four different continents and focus on the sales, services & after-market installations, and rental market of motor yachts and sailing yachts worldwide.

Clear Division of Services – Clearer Vision for the Future

With the announcement to create a clear division and separation between the various branch of services -and products by Yacht-Match Group, the consumer market and the b2b partners in the leisure marine industry can expect to find services and products associated with yacht sales, yacht ownership, and yacht charter ownership to be represented with distinction by the three main branches.


“In an industry where everyone is jostling to offer you the same services, we believe focusing on the people behind those services and the ways in which they provide them is what really makes the difference. Listing to the prospecting boat owners and our partners for the last 35 years we have been active in this industry, it’s clear that most consumers don’t have a clear overview of the market, because most yacht dealers and charter fleet operators, and even management at the shipyards, seem lack the full picture. Therefore we aim to stay the course we sat in 2016, the vision to be the thought leaders in the industry for a smarter and sustainable way of yacht ownership solutions"
