Munro joins SBG

Spencer Buley Group, a luxury asset group based in the U.K. that specializes in sourcing, acquisitions and new builds of luxury one-off assets, recently announced that it has been joined by Derek Munro, managing director of Yacht Consultancy, who now forms part of the owners team and will head up yacht new build projects for the group.

Munro, who serves as chairman of the Superyacht Charities Foundation, was project manager for the design and build of S/Y Black Pearl, the world’s largest and most technologically advanced sailing yacht, according to a statement from SBG. Munro now privately manages Black Pearl through his yacht management company, Divergent Yachting.

According to SBG, founder Ashley Spencer Hurrell and Munro share core principles in ensuring the client’s needs remain at the forefront of the design and build process, while also pushing boundaries in the zero-emissions megayacht market.

“Yacht design needs to become more cutting edge to meet the exacting standards and ‘green’ specifications required by our avant-garde, eco-conscious clients,” Hurrell stated.

According to SBG, the group’s association with independent professional partners provides unique opportunities and complete discretion – “completely off grid, under the radar, private and off the market from the public eye.” In association with Yacht Consultancy, SBG will tailor a project or owners team around clients, introducing them to independent partners – specialist yacht design and naval architects, interior designers and service providers.
