World’s leading superyacht lawyers

World's best superyacht lawyers

Anyone considering buying a superyacht will already have some trusted lawyers or firms that have advised on corporate work, trusts or property transactions. So paying for a specialist superyacht lawyer may seem like an unnecessary expense. It is rarely a decision you will regret.

Buying and operating a superyacht will nearly always involve several legal jurisdictions and complexities that few non-specialist lawyers are aware of. Specialist superyacht lawyers will be able to spot problems and help reduce stress. But they cannot solve every problem.

“Buy a yacht for enjoyment; buy the yacht you will enjoy; and build with the yard that makes you feel comfortable. Give fiscal considerations their proper priority, which is rarely at the top of the list. Get these things right and your lawyer can help make the deal happen with all necessary protections; but don’t expect a contract to turn a bad deal into a good one,” says Jay Tooker, partner, Holman Fenwick Willan.

The following lawyers have all been recommend as experts by buyers, brokers, yards and other lawyers.

Lawyers do not pay to be listed. The only way to make it is by being recommended. To nominate an exceptional yacht lawyer please email us.
