Issue 16


Ten years ago we founded CWP with the ambition to offer a select few yacht owners and charterers really exceptional service. We planned to keep the business small and focus on relationships. So far, so good.

Unfortunately, I find it very hard to turn away talent, so the team has grown a little larger than I had anticipated. We now have dedicated teams in yacht sales, retail charter, central agency charter, marketing, and management.

Ed Carrell is a case in point and joins as our Commercial Director. He’s an old friend from the army who went on to be COO of Barclays Bank in Africa. During our frequent coastal runs together, I would pose my problems and he would give what I felt was wise counsel. I’m delighted to have formalised our relationship and am enjoying Ed’s input and energy.

The Monaco office – led by Founding Partner Henry – has strengthened too, with Alex and Henry 2.0 joining Maria, Liz and Ross. Their lovely new office is overlooking the port from which they could also comfortably view the Formula 1 Grand Prix.

Lastly, I’m pleased to announce that Cecil Wright will sponsor the British Youth and Women’s teams at the 37th America's Cup in Barcelona 2024. More on this soon.

I do hope you enjoy this issue,
