If anyone is worth a full praise it is Charter Broker Jessica Engelmann. I am truly impressed by her effort, effectivity, helpfulness and professionalism. We send her our greatest and warmest thanks. She is are our hero!
I have absolutely no hesitation recommending Charter Manager Natascha Weber to an owner. In our many dealings, she has always been extremely well informed regarding her yachts and crew, the legalities of the industry, MYBA rules and regulations, taxation and the superyacht industry in general. It is a pleasure to work with her as her knowledge, dedication and timely responses keep the flow of information buzzing at all hours of the day (and night).
I have worked with Charter Manager Natascha Weber for many years and have always found her to be very professional, informative and a great pleasure to work with in general. Natascha has always made a point of responding to enquiries in an efficient, courteous and punctual manner. I have no hesitation in recommending Natascha in her role as central agent and it will be my great pleasure to continue working with her in the future.
Senior Charter Broker
I’ve had the pleasure of working with Charter Manager Natascha Weber for at least 20 years in her capacity as a charter broker, charter manager and charter director. The qualities I associate with Natascha are professionalism, diligence, honesty and reliability in all her dealings; these are coupled with an enviable perspicacity as a “dealmaker” and a healthy sense of humor. Many times, I’ve called on Natascha’s expertise for an opinion about a charter yacht and its crew, within or outside of her fleet, both locally in Spain or further afield. She has always been objective and well informed; I’ve thus been able to confidently book or thankfully avoid particular yachts for my clients.
It is an absolute pleasure to work with Charter Manager Natascha Weber who works in a very professional and reliable manner. She knows her yachts and crew well and has impressive knowledge of the different areas in which her yachts operate. Natascha always ensures that the information on the boats she manages is kept up to date. She promptly replies to enquiries, follows up and is available at any time.
We have known Charter Manager Natascha Weber for many years and she has proven to be a knowledgeable professional with a high sense of ethics; she has always been there for our captains and ourselves, regardless of the time of the day or day of the year. Furthermore, she is well known across the global luxury charter industry and retail charter brokers from all the big companies have always shown great respect and high esteem for her. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Natascha to any owner looking for a devoted professional to manage the charters of this yacht.
I give a most genuine and enthusiastic recommendation for Charter Manager and Broker Natascha Weber. Natascha was involved in our charter business as charter broker and later was central agent during my engagement on several yachts. Throughout the years of working with Natascha, I only can praise her abilities to the highest possible standard; she maintains an incredible high level in all aspects of her work. Her professional approach makes her a big asset to any yacht.
I have worked with Charter Broker Fiona Maureso for more than 20 years, I would not consider booking my charters through anyone else. She has a thorough knowledge of the market and her advice is always spot on.
Some clients have entrusted me with managing their charters every year for more than 30 years. It is therefore with very considerable care that I chose another charter professional with whom to work. Trust is an essential ingredient for a successful working relationship. With Charter Broker Fiona Maureso, I trust her professional attention to detail, her comprehensive understanding of the international charter market and her total reliability.
I have such great respect for Charter Broker Ann Landry. She has been such a leader in the charter segment of our business, and it is inspiring.

Charter Yacht Owner, Greece
Thanks to Charter Broker Ann Landry, the trip was amazing. We absolutely loved it! In many ways, the best part of the trip was the crew. I realize constructive criticism would be helpful, but I honestly don’t have any We just simply loved every minute and aspect of the trip. So many thanks to Ann for finding us the boat and planning such a wonderful trip. We are ever-so grateful. I will sing Ann’s praises to whomever mentions “yacht charter” from here forward! What a pleasure this has been from our first interaction to now.
Charter Client, Virgin Islands
I appreciate all the time and assistance from Charter Broker Ann Landry. I just caught up with my friend who recommended her, and I told him she had been most helpful. I will certainly use Ann again.

During my 12 years in this industry, I never had a charter broker follow up as much and none has ever sent me a pre-charter checklist or has been as thorough as Charter Broker Ann Landry prior to the guest’s arrival. I recommended that the client keeps using Northrop & Johnson’s services!
I have completed more than 11 purchases or sales transactions in 24 years with Kevin Merrigan, and eight of these were boats larger than 100 feet. The process on this latest purchase truly showcased his value in these transactions; not only before the purchase, but also after as well. From locating the right boat to counseling us on key points to make a deal, to arranging the best surveyors to your negotiation skills that resulted in a substantial reduction in the purchase price, which was due to your credibility with the opposing broker, to your introduction to a direct lender and your coordination of the financing at logical rates and terms and finally, counsel on hiring the right captain and crew and your recommendations on various subcontractors for the modifications and improvements are invaluable. Thank you for having our interests as the primary driver of this transaction. Thank you again for getting us into the right boat at a bargain price and with the best crew. Thank you to your entire team for making this a seamless transaction that was impressively documented and fun for all involved.
Yacht Owner, MYCHELLE
From our experience, Sales Broker Annie Avery is truly honest in her business dealings and relationships with others. Buying a boat is all about emotion. Annie understand that more than anybody else; she displays empathy with sound counselling and the highest level of professionalism. She knows her business well and is a people person; she cares about the finding the right boat for clients. Most valuable, when all was said and done, was how she able to transform the buying experience into something very pleasant and exciting. You can trust and appreciate a yacht broker as knowledgeable, professional and as caring as Ann Avery!
Buying a large yacht is quite an experience. From the dream of cruising the islands in a beautiful yacht to the reality of owning one, it can be rude awakening. But not so with Sales Broker Annie Avery. Annie is genuine in her dealings with us, pleased to show yachts and share her own passion and in-depth knowledge. She also disclosed all the important details or got answers swiftly for us; no games, no manipulation, no surprises — Annie presented all the facts up front. She made us comfortable about the ownership of a large yacht and help us demystify owning one.
Sales Broker Annie Avery is key in finalizing transactions and handling all details required to make the sales process move smoothly for all parties. I would not hesitate to recommend Annie nor would I choose any other broker for my representation in the future
Throughout the past 20 years, Sales Broker Annie Avery has assisted me with numerous transactions in the boating community; each of these experiences demonstrated her professionalism as an individual and her extensive knowledge of the market.
I have worked with Northrop & Johnson buying two boats and selling one. There is a reason I use them for my boat purchases and sales: they get the job done! Northrop & Johnson is responsive, straight forward, honest and its brokers know boats. I trust them completely, both as a seller and a buyer.
I cannot thank Sales Broker Wes Sanford enough for his expertise and assistance with the successful sale of SAFIRA. His persistence and expert guidance ensured that the sale went smoothly and better than anticipated. I am truly impressed by Northrop & Johnson’s professionalism and ability to see this transaction full circle. Everyone’s efforts were extraordinary, and it was a pleasure watching the entire team interact and keep our goals in mind.
When we listed our yacht, we expected the process to take a couple of years, but thanks to Northrop & Johnson, within two weeks he had a potential buyer. Our broker worked tirelessly to ensure the sale was remarkably easy for us. Knowledgeable and committed to the deal — these are the traits of a Northrop & Johnson sales broker.
Being a first-time boat owner can be overwhelming, but Sales Broker Michael Geraghty was there every step of the way making the process easy and enjoyable. We will definitely use Michael and Northrop & Johnson for future purchases.
I own three boats, all purchased with Michael Geraghty, and have purchased seven others with him in 15 years. He’s simply the best.
It would have been a real struggle (well-nigh impossible) without Sales Broker Philip Bell’s proactivity and knowledge on everything and Oscar-winning performances on the price!
