The International Yacht Law Consultancy

Specialising in UK and international yacht law for private and commercial superyachts.

Since 2001 John Tolcher has acted for UHNW superyacht owners and brings to market an international superyacht law consultancy available to assist owners and their representatives, and other industry participants, in all transactional and operational matters, including resolution of any disputes arising therefrom. 

John Tolcher’s experience in high value superyacht matters is second to none.  He was, for example, responsible for all legal aspects on the owner's side in the design, construction, delivery and registration of the 162.5m M/Y Eclipse from the start of the project to the time of the yacht’s delivery many years later.  In a subsequent press article reference was made to owner’s “iron cast contract” for that project. 

In fact, of the thirty largest yachts in the world at the present time, John Tolcher has acted as owner’s marine lawyer in relation to the construction and/or sale and purchase of five of them.

He is therefore available to use that experience on future transactional or litigation matters and to take over the management of all marine law issues.
