ABOUT BENEDICT

Benedict’s childhood passions for the sea, flight and motoring have fuelled a career journey spanning some thirty years. He has been involved some of the world’s most iconic luxury yachting, private aviation and motoring brands.

Beyond these key areas of expertise, Benedict has always maintained a close interest in architecture, furniture design and interior decoration. Over time this has led to a number of private commissions for high profile clients. From his London base, he also continues to work closely with a number of important British luxury brands. His work includes the revival of Linley and more recently the heritage brands, Swaine Adeney Brigg and Savoir Beds along with boutique luxury interior and furniture brands L&B and FBC London and iconic British men’s fashion brand Hackett.

Benedict is adaptable and resourceful, an outstanding project manager with a particular eye for detail

A founding member of Edmiston, the London and Monte Carlo based large yacht brokerage company ten years ago, Benedict went on to create a yachting brand for Engel & Völkers before founding his own, client driven boutique yacht consultancy, The Private Yacht Company, which uniquely provides specialist client representation for large yacht charter, new construction, sale, purchase and refit.

Yachting aside, Benedict has been working in the private aviation field alongside operators and owners of both aircraft and helicopters, bolstering his portfolio of expertise and contacts, gaining a clear understanding of the industry, ownership and operation, which perfectly complements his yachting business.

Having spent his formative working years with a number of London based, high profile luxury motor distributors including legendary Rolls-Royce & Bentley agents Jack Barclay in Mayfair and H.R.Owen in Kensington, Benedict naturally developed a thorough understanding of the motor business and an in-depth knowledge of both modern and historic motor cars. He continues to work closely with friends and contacts in the motoring world, advising his clients on collecting, acquisition and disposal.

Benedict is adaptable and resourceful, an outstanding project manager with a particular eye for detail. He has built his superlative reputation on his natural affinity for understanding the needs of individuals, responding to them effectively and discreetly with tailored solutions and creating and maintaining a significant stable of quality connections and ongoing relationships.

Combining his expertise, Benedict now offers a unique and complete proposition in a personal and bespoke client-focused service, drawing heavily on his outstanding knowledge, experience and contacts to provide genuine, discreet and impartial advice and solutions for the finest things in life.
