Fi Williams has lived and breathed boating all her life. Her childhood was spent in the Caribbean and for the ensuing 17 years, she worked with yachts both ashore and afloat, sailing in the finest destinations in the world. During this time, Fi also founded an independent charter agency, and she now brings her astonishing depth and breadth of knowledge to Cecil Wright.

Since setting up her own charter agency, Fi has spent two decades keeping abreast of the world’s yacht fleets by attending as many as five charter trade shows a year. Onboard each boat she will acquaint herself with the crew, taste the chef’s cuisine and experience first-hand the quality in atmosphere, design and amenities. She comes away with a deep understanding of the yacht’s defining characteristics: “Boats all look fabulous on a computer screen,” Fi explains, “but I’ve stepped foot on the majority of our charter yachts and I know exactly what
I’m recommending.”

By listening carefully to a client’s requests, not only does Fi confidently match a guest with a charter boat that will tick all their dream boxes, but she can steer them to choose the best cruising grounds too. “I’ve spent more than 25 years working in the yachting industry and still believe that time spent on the water is one of life’s greatest riches,” says Fi, “I know nearly all the places that we charter, and I can bring personal insight and experience to creating the perfect itinerary.”

Since she started working for Cecil Wright in the Hampshire office last September, Fi feels that she’s found the best match for herself. “I’m now part of a very positive team at Cecil Wright, that has great focus, drive and energy. Chris’s mission is to give exceptional service to fewer clients, which has always been my own philosophy, too.”
