How can we help your business?
Given the high cost of a superyacht it is understandable that superyacht owners and managers want access to only the very best legal advice.
Our team understands the unique challenges faced by superyacht owners and operators, offering a range of legal services that span the superyacht life cycle.
From sale and purchase to ownership and refits, our team can advise on the relevant legal issues. These include new builds, purchase agreements, insurance disputes, casualty events, chartering, crew employment agreements and disputes, and registration.
Given that an individual superyacht may find itself in any number of remote locations, it's reassuring to know that Shearwater Law is able to work on an international basis. Our network of global contacts allows us to work on matters of English law anywhere in the world.
We understand that for yacht and superyacht owners, both time and money are precious. It’s for that reason that Shearwater Law takes a straightforward approach to cases, focusing on the merits of the case and seeking to avoid arbitration where possible. Should a case proceed to arbitration, it’s our aim to achieve a satisfactory resolution as soon as possible.
