About Us

Sarnia Yachts has over 45 years’ experience in yacht ownership and operational services. With a presence in Guernsey, Malta and the UK, we formulate and deliver the best, long-term solutions for owners of both private and commercial yachts.

Sarnia Yachts provides a diverse and flexible range of services including advice, yacht administration, VAT management, flag registration, crew employment and payroll and corporate yacht ownership. We are one of the longest standing fiduciaries in the marine sector with a team of 15 in the Guernsey office, 5 in Malta and a further 5 in our new UK office. Yacht owners, trust and family offices, lawyers and yacht brokers often call upon Sarnia for our specialist knowledge in flagging, yacht registration or VAT management.

We are a trusted partner for anyone in need of specialist yacht administration services. Every day our crewing department helps captains and crew keep their ship on a steady course. We have gathered knowledge through decades of working in the industry and Sarnia is licensed by the Guernsey Financial Services Commission to provide fiduciary services and Malta Financial Services Authority to provide corporate services. 

Yacht ownership and operation are now highly regulated. There are numerous maritime laws to follow and financial pitfalls to be avoided. Sarnia can guide you through these complexities, leaving you to relax and enjoy the journey. We believe it’s the small details that make a big difference. And it’s Sarnia’s specialist knowledge that makes the journey of yacht ownership a smooth one.
