Our values

Our core values drive everything that we do. Please see below for details.

Sustainability

We have profound respect for people and for our planet. Working and living close to the sea, we understand the importance of becoming a sustainable business. This is present in all our dealings – with clients, suppliers, employees and anyone we meet – and in the products we recommend. Thanks to our partnerships with multiple eco-friendly and sustainable companies, we offer an extensive choice of organic brands and products. We use biodegradable packing materials and recycled cardboard to consolidate items for shipping. We recommend using durable and biodegradable products and materials, and local suppliers, whenever possible. In addition, Yacht Chandlers sponsors the Nova Southwestern University Shark tagging program, to help scientists to track the life and health of sharks worldwide.

2003 - Having organised outfitting solutions...

Having organised outfitting solutions for several new build yachting projects during her career, Brenda realised that there was very little support available for crew, management companies and owners for this particular aspect of the challenge. She set up her own interior outfitting company, called New Wave Interiors, to plug the gap and make the entire process much easier, quicker and smoother to navigate.

2008 - Heavily pregnant with her first baby

Heavily pregnant with her first baby, Brenda completed her final new build yachting project in the role of chief stewardess and promptly focused her attention on growing her shore-based business. She led many new build, refit and other outfitting projects to exceptional styling outcomes worldwide, saving captains, interior managers and other stakeholders lots of time, and replacing uncertainty with peace of mind.

2011 - Two babies and one flourishing business later...

Two babies and one flourishing business later, Brenda decided it was time to broaden the scope of her business. She teamed with Yacht Chandlers to create a dedicated, specialised interiors department. YC Interiors was born and Brenda was named managing director of the European division.

In the same year, Brea joined Brenda. In a small office near the port of Antibes, they combined their expertise, passion and drive to provide a truly world-class, end-to-end luxury outfitting service. Together, they built the YC Interiors brand.

2012 - Brenda and Brea started to expand the business...

Early in 2012, Brenda and Brea started to expand the business. Their first recruit was a sales manager to support the growth of YC Interiors’ technical department. The interiors department soon needed to increase headcount too due its rapid growth. An accountant and driver were next to join, and the search for a bigger space was on!

2013-2014 - YC Interiors moved to a bigger office...

YC Interiors moved to a bigger office, with ample warehouse space, near Port Vauban. The team continued to grow. Vicky and Sascha joined the deck and engineering department, Renate assumed responsibility for accountancy, and John took on logistics. Staff numbers doubled from three to six and – outside the office walls – five new babies were born!

2015-2018 - YC Interiors continued to grow...

YC Interiors continued to grow as did the passion of the team behind it. With many of these projects taking place in Holland and Germany, the need for local ground support for new build and refit projects in these countries soon became apparent. The company expanded accordingly. It also extended its service to cover luxury villas and apartments around the globe.

2020-2021 - The pandemic hit...

The pandemic hit and suddenly the business world had to get more creative. A team of blue-sky thinkers, we soon came up with many out-of-the-box solutions that enabled us to keep delivering a first-class service to our customers. And business continued to boom! Jeannette, Alex and Sarah joined the team and we opened our flagship showroom in Antibes, opposite Yacht Chandlers’ state-of-the-art warehouse.

2022 - We could not be more proud of what we have achieved...

This year we were fortunate enough to welcome Andreea and Nicole to our sales team, and Vadym and Ana to our logistics team. John has adjusted his focus to marketing projects while, in the US, Samantha has joined our equally dynamic team there.

We could not be more proud of what we have achieved, nor more grateful to all our partners, clients and colleagues for helping us to get there. Thank you, all! Please continue to support us as we keep our sights firmly set on providing an outstanding outfitting service to crew, interior managers, management companies and owners in the yachting and high-end residence space. We’ll continue refining, tweaking and polishing our services, processes and partnerships to ensure that we keep raising the bar in this exciting space. Thank you for being such a vital and valuable part of our journey so far !

What our clients say about us…

I found their services exceptional!

“I have worked with Yacht Chandlers regularly over the last nine years and more recently I worked with them to help set up our 50m new build. I found their services exceptional! Their extensive knowledge and efficient, professional manner really made things easier for me. Communication was clear, prompt and always helpful. I have had no issue with any product supplied by them as the quality has always been to a high standard. If there was ever any minor issue, they were always great in helping sort it out. I have genuinely enjoyed working with them and would use their services again without a doubt. “

Hannah – Chief Stewardess

I highly recommend YC Interiors

“I am continuously approached by other companies trying to poach our business. However, I would never move away from YC Interiors due to the Premium Service that they provide. They are prompt with quotes and go above and beyond to get things ordered under extremely tight timeframes. Whenever deliveries arrive, I have no doubt that everything will be in impeccable order. Not only is their service amazing, their quotes and invoicing is very straightforward and easy to navigate. I highly recommend YC Interiors for any boats who are looking to find an agent for their interior needs!”
