AN ENDLESS PASSION FOR YACHTING
David Fraser’s deep, lifelong love of yachting inspired him to turn his passion into a business. In 2017, that company celebrates its 70th anniversary. Thanks to David’s hard work, high standards, honesty, integrity and strong ethics, his humble venture grew to become a world-leading yachting organisation. Today, those same values and passion for yachting are shared by every member of our team. They are the foundation that lives at the very heart of everything we do.
 
 
A BRIEF HISTORY
In 1947, a young man, David Fraser, decided to combine his passion for sailing and his talent for selling, and established a yacht brokerage on the West coast of the United States.
As the company grew, David instilled his enthusiasm and sense of integrity into everyone he worked with. The brokerage expanded to Fort Lauderdale in the 70s and then merged with the European company United Yachting in the 90s and started offering charter and management services. The company is now 70 years old, with 15 offices around the world and 150 dedicated staff.
