Hey there, I'm Ben Young and I'm the Founder and Director of SYM SuperYacht Management. It's been an amazing journey starting from a spare bedroom and growing to work with an awesome team at SYM, our clients and captains, and the Northrop & Johnson team. We're always excited to serve our lovely clients and work with a fun group of people.
I left the UK in '94 and fell in love with skiing during my first ski season in Val D’isere. I started as a deckhand and worked my way up to becoming a Captain before starting one of the first yacht management companies. I love sailing and have recently gotten into wing-foiling.
As for the future, I'm super excited to see how far we can take Yacht Management! The possibilities are endless, and I'm eager to explore every single one of them. With a passionate and dedicated team by my side, we're ready to embark on new adventures, set sail towards uncharted territories and elevate our services to even greater heights.
My Outside-office Life
When I'm not working, I'm usually skiing, cycling, wing-foiling, sailing, hiking, traveling or spending time with family and friends.
I was awarded an MBE after setting up and running a charity called Cogs 4 Cancer, where we raised over €1 Million for charity.
I had the honor of being Captain for HM Queen Elizabeth II
I was once attacked by pirates off Yemen
