10 reasons why SuperYacht Times iQ is the essential intelligence system

Written by Justus Papenkordt

SuperYacht Times iQ is the virtual superyacht intelligence expert for every key decision maker or discerning yacht owner.

The superyacht business is a very confidential industry which means information can often be limited, inconsistent or simply wrong. 

There is a need, therefore, for an intelligence system that provides accurate and reliable intel that enables users to draw the right conclusions and make the best business decisions.

Here are 10 reasons why our system, SYT iQ, (also available as an app) is an essential tool:                 

1. A comprehensive fleet database (8,600 yachts 24m+): 

It contains the most accurate and comprehensive database on the global superyacht fleet (8,600 yachts), and is approximately 99% complete for yachts over 30m. 

SYT iQ goes the extra mile, providing detailed information on sales, refits, casualties, flags, owners, contact details and location.

2. Construction book insights (594 yachts in-build):

We give rare insights into the construction books of superyacht builders. Gathering information on the new-build segment is challenging and time-consuming, but we do it because it offers users the possibility of assessing the current state of the market as well as identifying potential business opportunities.

3. We know the sales market (8,800 deals):

SYT iQ provides vast information on yacht sales over 24m, new yachts coming onto market, price reductions, days on market, and central agents making sure you are always ahead of the game. 

You can not only find the best deals available on today’s market, but analyse the records of all yacht sales in recent years, identifying new trends.

Discover the owners of yachts, plus their current and historic fleets. An owner is only listed after being verified through meticulous research. Discovering information such as owners' nationalities can help identify markets and trends.

5. Receive daily updates

In a daily email our iQ users are notified about the latest name changes, price changes, yachts launched, new completions, sold yachts and new listings. 

Everything you need to know can be found in one email. SYT iQ also utilises short notes for as-and-when news announcements. Be it casualties, sales rumours, owner names or auctions.

6. Discover industry professionals:  

We provide contact details for superyachts, shipyards, companies, senior crew, and project managers. SYT iQ users have access to the contact details of 2,500 professionals and more than 5,800 companies.

7. Customise searches 

You can customise our data to your own requirements, monitoring a specific segment or fleet of yachts, and receiving direct updates on any type of activities within the fleet. 

We make sure you get the information you need.

8. Learn a yacht's history 

SYT iQ not only provides the latest data and updates, but also comprehensive information on the yacht's history, including past sales, casualties, refits, past owners and crew. 

We are tracking all yachts out-of-service and casualties caused by damages, fire or sinking.
