Veteran manager starts firm


Yacht manager Michael Reardon has opened his own firm, Reardon Yacht Consulting (RYC) in Ft. Lauderdale. RYC provides ISM and MLC implementation, management of new build and refit projects, and crew management.

Reardon brings nearly 30 years of experience operating and managing luxury yachts. A former captain, he spent 11 years as a manager with Fraser Yachts and most recently was head of U.S. operations for yacht management with Hill Robinson.

“Working with some of the biggest companies in the yachting industry has given me a unique opportunity to gain experience in all phases of international yacht and charter yacht management,” Reardon said. “Now I am delighted to have the chance to draw on my knowledge base to provide my exceptionally high level of service to clients in the setting of a much smaller, high-touch firm.”

Over his career, he has managed many of the world’s best known yachts, including the 425-foot Lürssen M/Y Octopus, the 257-foot Royal Denship M/Y Pegasus V (ex-Princess Mariana), and the 197-foot Oceanco M/Y Pegasus II (ex-Alfa Four).

An active member of the U.S. Superyacht Association (USSA), he is on its Advocacy Committee and also served as moderator of the keynote panel for second annual USSA Superyacht Summit in late March. He is a founding member of the Mediterranean Yacht Brokers Association’s Yacht Management Committee, and is a member of the Florida Yacht Brokers Association (FYBA).
