International Yacht Company opens office in Dubai

Dubai International Boat Show 2023

Superyacht brokerage and charter company the International Yacht Company (IYC) has opened a new office in Dubai, in partnership with Vision Investments Limited, a subsidiary of Al Ameeri Group Holding.

The new Dubai office is the 15th office worldwide for IYC, which now has over 130 staff working in its offices globally.

The firm says its decision to establish a presence in Dubai comes as a ‘strategic move’, reflecting the significance of the UAE’s vibrant and growing luxury yacht market.

Last month, superyacht agency Acquera Yachting also established a new Dubai-headquartered subsidiary, operating as Acquera Yachting Middle East, as the firm expands its operations in the Middle East region.

“The opening of our 15th office globally and our presence in the Middle East solidifies our position as a key player in the yachting industry,” says Raphael Sauleau, CEO of IYC. “Our partnership with Vision Investments Limited is a testament to our confidence in Al Ameeri Group Holding and their alignment with our vision and values. We are excited about the opportunities this expansion brings and are dedicated to providing unmatched services to existing clients and new clients alike in Dubai and the Middle East.”

Ahmad Al Ameeri, CEO of Al Ameeri Group Holding, adds: “We are very excited and thrilled to announce our partnership with IYC. This partnership represents a significant milestone in our journey to diversify our investments towards excellence and, in particular, in the maritime industry.

“Together, we embark on a voyage of limitless possibilities, aiming to redefine luxury, sophistication, and innovation in the world of yachting. With IYC & our Group’s knowledge & experience, we are confident that this partnership will provide yacht owners and clients with the finest options and solutions for their yachting needs and will set new standards of excellence.”
