Large yacht management specialist Watkins Yacht Management has entered into a joint marketing venture with Air Harrods to provide aviation and concierge support, both helicopter and fixed wing, to the superyacht industry. Transfers to yachts now begin at the owner, charterer or guest’s front door and form a seamless itinerary incorporating limousines, flights and helicopter transfers, supported by highly experienced staff. The cruise now begins at home.
Together Air Harrods and Watkins Yacht Management can ensure that any superyacht voyage begins and ends perfectly with service and style. Both London-based companies have a global reputation based on privacy, safety and service and look forward to offering these extended services to their local and international client base.
Adrian McCourt of Watkins Yacht Management said, "We have worked with Air Harrods staff for over 15 years and are delighted to formalise this relationship and extend our services to the large yacht industry. Their attitude to safety is without parallel and we would have no hesitation in recommending them to our valued clients."
Watkins Yacht Management provided discrete support to high-profile owners and charterers for seven years before launching as an independent large yacht specialist in 2006. In addition to a range of management options, they can source yachts for charter, assist new owners, provide brokerage for sale and purchase or a discrete acquisition service with access to a number of high profile owners.
Air Harrods operates under Air Operators Certificate 2049 which is a requirement of the UK Civil Aviation Authority for operators of public transport/charter flights. This means the CAA have certified Air Harrods as 'competent to secure the safe operation of aircraft'.
