Contact one of us and you will be accessing the experience and knowledge of the West Nautical group- empowering your decisions in yachting with the best possible advice.



West Nautical has been in the luxury marine business for over twenty years, retaining a knowledge base spanning every aspect of the industry. From shipbuilding, to brokerage, to crew selection. Our clients testify year on year that our expertise fosters confidence in us to deliver.

Unparalleled service

West Nautical understands the high levels of service our clients expect. Our CEO Andrey Lomakin’s experience as both as a serial yacht owner and longstanding industry figure underpins our approach; ensuring purchase is as much of a pleasure as ownership.

Our team appreciates the emotion involved in purchasing a luxury that’s been considered long and hard. Know that you will be in capable, experienced hands throughout the entire process; dealing with a dedicated team member.

After purchase, we will continue to support you throughout your ownership. Many of our clients handover management of their yachts to West Nautical following purchase.

A record of sales

West Nautical’s brokerage department is active and ambitious, with strength in both sales and purchase, we forge healthy relationships within the industry and deliver a competitive package for our clients- many of whom are moving from yacht to yacht. During our twenty years in the industry, West Nautical has sold hundreds of yachts.

Tailored to your needs

Whether a new purchase, or perhaps even a full refit of a classic hull you fell in love with, West Nautical has the knowledge and experience to customise your new luxury yacht and get it perfect. A positive and possible approach is fundamental to how we operate.


West Nautical is justifiably proud of its sales record and employs some of the best brokers, something distilled by our sales record.

Nowhere in our business is it more true that knowledge is power. Our relationships within the industry are, quite unusually, truly international. Something echoed by our team’s many languages and our physical presence in the South of France, the UK, and Russia, 3 of the powerhouse nations within the yacht industry.

Financial advice

West Nautical is well versed in advising on the most efficient financial solutions for your particular circumstances, whether your yacht is run privately or as a commercial charter vessel. We introduce our clients to our trusted network of financially regulated suppliers who can advise on all VAT options available, depending on the specific scenario of your yacht and personal circumstances.
