Welcome to Bernard Gallay Yacht Brokerage - BGYB. With a relentless team of dedicated and experienced professionals, yachting contacts around the globe and a depth of industry knowledge, Bernard Gallay and the team are dedicated to making clients' dreams come true.
Founded in 1994, BGYB originally dealt with small vessels on a simple brokerage level. Today, BGYB has expanded across multiple fields with an international network of offices and representatives, selling super yachts up to 175ft long. BGYB specializes in yacht sales & purchase, luxury yacht charter and yacht management, offering clients a unique, professional and enthusiastic service. We build close relationships with our clients, based upon trust, honesty and dedication, ensuring the best service and guidance offered within the yachting industry.
A Changing Industry
Since the company was founded, the yacht and super yacht industry has undergone enormous change. The number and size of boats have increased, technical complexity has intensified, and legislation, standards and safety have all changed. After only a few years BGYB obtained a reputation as an international organisation, and became a member of the MYBA – Mediterranean Yacht Broker Association, to which the most important international brokerage companies belong to, and of which its commercial terms and uses have become an international reference for the yachting industry.
Our International Service
BGYB offers an unparalleled professionalism in its service which has its roots in a genuine passion for the seas. All our representatives have an extensive background in ocean racing or yacht management before turning to the brokerage profession. This passion has resulted in a service built upon a genuine interest and dedication to the nautical world and means that BGYB can draw upon a wealth of experience no matter the discipline. BGYB is constantly expanding and playing a significant role in the international brokerage scene with offices across the globe in France (Montpellier, Paris, La Ciotat), Moscow, Los Angeles, Palma de Mallorca, Monaco, Grenada, Hong Kong and Turkey.
