private clients

Benedict Ridge is widely known for his integrity and varied experience at the top of the market. A trusted advisor, he has been involved in the superyacht business since 2001 and was one of the founding team of the yacht brokerage house Edmiston.

Recognising a lack of clear and honest advice available to clients in an often confusing market.  He founded The Private Yacht Company to provide a unique client-driven service for selected clients with an outstanding advisory service and full transparency on fees. This business now sits comfortably alongside his existing private client work.

Offering discreet access to the world’s most private yachts

Unlike mainstream yacht brokerage, The Private Yacht Company only ever acts in the best interests of their clients, providing discreet, expert advice and uncompromising client representation for all aspects of yacht ownership and charter.

The company does not list specific yachts for sale or charter preferring to quietly but actively research the global fleet for clients, often securing even the most private yachts directly and discreetly.

The Private Yacht Company is uniquely placed to provide his private clients with genuinely impartial yachting advice, ensuring complete client confidentiality, integrity and the highest levels of service and detail possible.

Working closely with the world’s most talented and capable yacht designers, naval architects and shipyards along with a network of yacht owners, captains, consultants and brokers the company offers a full range of client services at every level including bespoke yacht charter, superyacht construction projects, acquisition and sale.

The Private Yacht Company is bolstered by similarly minded unbiased highly specialist team of yachting professionals, all experts in their particular field drawing on individual skills when required.
