Riviera Yacht Support… The solution.

Riviera Yacht Support was founded by Ulf Sydbeck in 2000 after spending 12years working on yachts. During his time onboard he realised that there was a great need for a high-quality and dedicated shore support agency that would meet the expectations and needs of owner, guest and crew. Using the extensive contact network which he had built up all along the Riviera, and combining it with his “can do” attitude and business ethic, Riviera Yacht Support was born.

The cornerstones of quality and service that Riviera Yacht Support was first founded upon are still as strong and evident today. Ulf has surrounded himself with a team who share his ideals, go the extra mile, and who are constantly looking to improve the quality of the services which we offer. Since it’s inception, Riviera Yacht Support has gone from strength to strength, and it’s reputation as the premier choice of agent on the Cote D’ Azur for Captains, crew, management and owners has been earned from over a decade of top quality bespoke services and solutions.

Let us give you back the time you desire, so that you can focus on your job, while we focus on ours. Riviera Yacht Support… The Solution.

RYS Wines

Riviera Yacht Support Fine Wine Supplier.

Our wine division is headed by Louise Sydbeck, our incredibly passionate and knowledgeable wine guru. Louise has been involved in the wine industry for over 20 years and has at her disposal an impressive worldwide network of contacts and suppliers. Our focus is on prestige wines and champagnes of which we offer a large selection of the worlds finest and most sought after. For the more adventurous owner who is willing to sample wines outside of the normal names we can make fantastic recommendations from vineyards that are all too often overlooked in our industry.

Wine makes life more enjoyable and the more you know about it the more enjoyment you’re likely to find. For this reason we feel it’s important to not just supply the wine but also to inform our clients what is in the bottle. Every wine is accompanied by an information sheet which may cover, for example, grape varieties, history and food and wine matching. Riviera Yacht Support is an approved programme provider for the Wine and Spirit Education Trust (WSET course) and Louise holds a number of these incredibly informative courses every year.

Tutored wine tastings are also a great way of learning more about this important and fascinating subject and we can organise these free of charge for our clients. We also offer “themed wine tastings” with more focus on certain regions, comparing vintages or quality levels. Our wine list (which can be found on our website or delivered to you in book form) is merely a selection of what we can offer you.

If you have any other requests or questions please don’t hesitate to contact us and we’ll be happy to provide you with a quote, recommendations or advice. Louise’s wine blog www.theyachtcruwineguide.com is also a fantastic resource for crew looking for answers to their questions and general information on wine and service.

RYS Berthing

An issue common to all yachts on the French Riviera is berthing. Having your yacht in the right port at the right time can play a big role in the success and enjoyment of owner and charter trips.

We appreciate this problem and over the past 10 years we have built up a firm relationship with all the crucial port offices on the French Coast & throughout the Mediterranean. Whether you need the all important night in St Tropez or a winter berth in Cannes, allow us to secure that important berth for you. There is no charge until we have secured the berth, so you can be sure we are doing the maximum to get you that spot.

Please contact us to find out which berths we have available for sale or alternatively if you are looking to sell your berth contact us to have it listed with us.
