The Company was founded in 2011 by Mr. Mohamed Al Zaabi as it was his vision to create a new evolution in the Luxury Charter market. His vision turned to reality as he began and grew his luxury yachting Business in the Mena region offering high end luxury charters. During this time, he realized a wanting demand in yacht brokerage and developed the Royal Yachts brokerage activity.

Nowadays Royal Yachts provides an innovative service no longer based on a simple activity of brokerage but focused on an exclusive, personalized and complete consulting service aimed at the most demanding and expert customers.

The keystone of Royal Yachts is to treat the client and his operations thinking of the luxuries that take place in them; therefore not a mere broker, often without license, but rather a manager, a consultant, a professional, who together with the client can share common interests. The client, once perceived to deal with a professional who can understand his needs and share his lifestyle choices, will naturally entrust Royal Yachts with the management of an asset such as a yacht, his own holidays (charter), the sale or purchase of his dream.

In the last few years, customers and yacht owners have often been treated, not with the care and assistance they would need when buying a new yacht or buying and selling a second hand one, chartering or management of their holiday. It is from this reflection that Royal Yachts  proposes a new concept of yachting consulting a highly professional service (commercial / technical / legal) guaranteed by more than thirty years of experience and professional ability of its team, from a desire to offer a complete service that goes beyond pure advice but thanks to the philosophy of good living can give some useful suggestions to use their yachts and yachting, thus leaving the owner, the pleasure of using yachts, both owned and chartered, without the technical / management problems of the same.
