I’m Richard Higgins, Yacht Broker with Northrop & Johnson. With over 12 years of experience in the yachting business, I am dedicated to providing my clients with an exemplary level of service through my extensive experience, technical acumen and dedication. I have lived and worked across three continents, learning the trade before settling full-time in the South of France.
I have always been fascinated by the water. After learning to sail at a young age in Southampton, I found my passion for the sea and started my yachting career as crew working on an 85’ sailing yacht in Australia. I went to school in the UK, and after graduating, I worked in the defense industry in London. In 2010, I decided to follow my true passion for the sea and was drawn to the yachting industry. I moved with my wife to the South of France, where I began building a successful and respected career in yacht brokerage.
I hope to continue to advance my passion for yachting and be a successful broker, negotiating and searching for the best deals for my clients. I enjoy learning and being inspired by others, absorbing as much knowledge as possible from other experienced team members.
