The magnificent new Feadship Sea Owl, the first project of Edge Yachts, was recently launched at the Royal Van Lent yard in Holland to critical acclaim within the luxury yacht community. Equally important to her owner as the beauty of her lines and finish, and her technological sophistication is that she was built on time and on budget. That is the result of Edge Yachts, founded by Anthony Sands, who brings a unique and refreshing perspective and approach to luxury yacht management.
What is Edge Yachts?
Edge Yachts is a new, full-service yacht management company with a unique approach to the market: Small is better.
Why is small better?
We believe the bottom line for success from our clients' point of view is full accountability, uncompromising ethics and complete dedication to their interests. At Edge Yachts our clients have one point of contact. Me. We only accept as many projects as I personally have time to personally manage.
What else is different about Edge Yachts?
We listen. We pay attention. We think and act big, but we are committed to remaining small, focused, and private. Our strongest assets are knowledge, experience, ethics and ability to communicate quickly and effectively. We are team-builders, we believe the only way to consistently achieve our client's highest goals is by assembling the best companies and individuals in the industry and leading them to success.
How do you guarantee your performance?
The Edge Yachts contract is a single paragraph: Edge Yachts is hereby appointed to represent (the Owner and/or vessel) within the agreed scope of services (attached). We serve at the sole discretion of our clients, no strings attached. Period.
How would you describe your operational approach?
The keys to our performance are communications and teamwork. A successful project is not only the result of a great collaboration between client and manager, but between every member of the team from both the shipyard and client sides of the construction equation. Swift and effective response to any query is the key to keeping a project on time and on budget, as is quickly and professionally resolving the critical issues that emerge with every build or refit. My role is always to keep every member of the team operating at full capacity and cooperatively in the best interests of my client.
