The story of SmartYacht - Yacht financing and boat share company

The idea behind SmartYacht (FL) arose out of the founder's over 25 years of experience in the fields of yachting, aircraft sharing, financing and international law. Founded in the Principality of Liechtenstein in 2008, SmartYacht comprises an experienced and efficient team of highly motivated experts, who strive to be the best in the luxury boat share industry and at the same time embody the core competencies of the company itself: entrepreneurship, innovative thinking, financial expertise and a marked affinity for luxury.

A unique network of strong partners

It’s all about discretion, trust and service!

“Ask a ship-owner which international accountant he most associates with the shipping industry, and he will probably say Equiom”

(Lloyd’s List)

Equiom provides professional trustee, trust administration and corporate service to private, corporate and institutional clients, whether they are creating or preserving wealth. SmartYacht teamed up with Equiom in order to develop a unique yacht financing and ownership concept, providing its co-owners a maximum of discretion, security and flexibility.
