Yacht brokerage Yachtzoo has opened its sixth international office in London’s Square Mile, with new brokers Neil Hornsby and Amanda Armstrong at the helm.
“The expansion to include an operation in London is a significant landmark for Yachtzoo, which this year celebrated its 10th anniversary,” Yachtzoo’s founding partners Paola Scalabrino, Kirsten Ringsing, Darrell Hall and Chris Richardson stated in a company press release. “Having a physical presence in one of the most popular cities for our clientele will be of huge benefit to them, and the combined brokerage expertise that Amanda and Neil bring to the team is outstanding.”
Hornsby has more than 25 years experience in the charter business and has helped develop charter divisions for some of the biggest names in yacht brokerage. Before life as a charter broker, he worked on superyachts in the Mediterranean and Caribbean, and subsequently as an insurance broker for Lloyd’s of London.
Armstrong, whose yachting career began in 2000, spent seven years as a charter manager before focusing on retail charter space a decade ago.
Yachtzoo also has operations in Monaco, Fort Lauderdale, Tokyo, New Zealand. Croatia and Montenegro.
