Management & Consulting

THOMAS B. ROWE , Managing Director joined the company in 1984 and manages the yacht sales and charter division. Prior to joining NYM, Tom sold new and used yachts in New York with McMichael and in Newport with Bartram & Brakenhoff.

Prior to that he owned and operated a travel agency in Chicago. Tom also has experience serving as an owner's representative in a custom yacht building project  where his responsibilities ran the gamut from preparation of general specification to equipment selection to final delivery of the yacht. Tom's sea miles  include the U.S. Coast from Maine to Florida, Bermuda, the Caribbean, the Greek Islands and the Great Lakes.

From the conceptual stage when commissioning a new yacht, the experienced NYM team can help you in selecting the right design, the most appropriate yard, or advising on the best materials and accoutrements to meet your needs. We'll even function as your advocate, on site, during the construction refit process, assuring the most effective use of your money.

  • Design Specification: The NYM team will help you develop a detailed list of engineering and accommodation requirements, to make certain that the end result will be suited to your tastes, budget and intended use.
  • Materials and Equipment: The NYM team working closely with the owner, captain, designer and builder offers knowledgeable insight into construction material and equipment necessary to assure that the yacht is as seaworthy as it is elegant.
  • Shipyard  Supervision: The NYM team is familiar with every aspect of yacht design and construction making us an indispensable ally at the yard; we oversee every detail to assure top quality workmanship, delivered in a timely manner, at a fair price.
  • Yacht Maintenance: The NYM team works directly with owners and captains to develop a prudent maintenance and inspection schedule for the yacht. This can make the critical difference in preventing unnecessary expense and the inconvenience of lost time and or revenue due to unscheduled repairs.

Yacht Sales

Our comprehensive knowledge and experience in the sale of substantial yachts, ensures that clients wishing to buy or sell, receive the finest service available in the industry. Contacts with all the major houses, on a personal level, as well as through Yacht Council , (which is an industry owned MLS) by computer and modem, enables us to identify an extensive range of yachts meeting our clients general criteria.

We educate our clients so that they are not unduly bothered by trivialities and properly understand areas of major concern. We advise on whether or not re-negotiation is necessary or when it is appropriate to resort to a simple escrow agreement.We have a working knowledge of many of the laws effecting yachts as they travel around the world. We are particularly strong on what is required of vessels carrying the US flag. We have been consulting with the U.S. Coast Guard for several years about the documentation and registration of charter yachts.

Most of the knowledge employed to benefit the buyer of a yacht also applies to the seller. Beyond the change in focus, we can help with a marketing plan, establish a fair market value for your yacht, create and place ads in appropriate media, consult with fellow brokers and buyers about the viability of your yacht in the marketplace, revising strategies to implement a fast efficient sale.

Charter Sales

NYM's depth of knowledge in the yachting and travel industries lends an uncommon perspective to our charter sales division. We go beyond traditional charter brokering, seeking to provide clients with a memorable yachting experience, as opposed to merely "finding them a boat." Having lived and sailed in most of the world's great cruising grounds, the NYM professionals know not only when and where to go, but how best to get there. Our worldwide network of distinctive yachts is available to escort guests to virtually any destination. We'll assist with travel arrangements to and from the charter base, identify key points of interest along the way and advise guests about local customs and practices.

We work directly with clients or through other licensed brokers. Should an NY M yacht be unavailable at the time and location of a client's choosing, we'll work diligently to find a suitable alternative. We also insist on speaking with the captain directly to assure all arrangements are clearly understood prior to each charter. All we need from the client is information on the type of cruising they enjoy, the number of guests, budget parameters and when and where they would like to go. We'll handle the rest.

This personal attention to detail is the difference between the NYM yachting experience and ordinary chartering.
