Financial Services We Offer
Financial Planning for Yacht Crew
We’ve made it our life’s work to help yacht crew leave yachting financially independent. Let us help you too.
Classic and Special Opportunities
In addition to our regular investment strategies, we also created two special classes of Polaris investments. We did so based on the feedback from a survey we did among superyacht crew. We asked them what they wanted to invest in. Then we went out in search of opportunities to meet their wishes.

Why choose us as your financial planners
We’re the genuine Yachting Financial Solutions (Yachting Financial Services (Ireland) DAC, to give you our full name)—the only financial planners dedicated solely to superyacht crew. It’s flattering that others are copying our name, but don’t be fooled. We don’t work with any other financial consultants and advisors, nor do we have any affiliation with other financial consultants and advisors.
Why not? Because other financial consultants don’t understand yachting like we do. And they don’t treat yacht crew like we do. Also, We have ex-yacht crew at all levels of our company. So we know your world. And we know how to help you make the most of your career in yachting.
We are here for YOU
We’re not a faceless financial corporation trying to cash in on yacht crew. We care. You’ll be treated like a human being by a team committed to your financial success.
We’ll be open and honest with you. The goal is to make you financially free. That’ll take some work. So see us like your personal financial trainer. Part friendly consultant, part drill sergeant. But 100% on your side.
Together, we’ll keep you on track so you reach your destination—the life of your dreams.

Beware of YFSOL Imitators
What people say about us
“Once you start saving, it is amazing how quickly it accumulates. Before talking with Yachting Financial Solutions, I would have just left my earnings in the bank doing nothing. But now I know that my money is actually making more money, and I feel more secure about my future when I retire from yachting.”
It was great fun chatting to you today. I really do appreciate you taking the time to get to know me better and find out what my hopes are for my future.
After attempts over the past few years, with other financial advisors and institutions, I now feel so much more confident and optimistic about my financial future and look forward to working with you further and hearing your ideas and prospective plans on how I may be able to achieve my goals.
“It is crazy but suddenly I feel more motivated at work. It makes me feel like I could actually be working for something.
“I guess I have no real sense of purpose since I don’t have a home or anything to spend my hard earned money on (apart from holidays). It is good to have a sense of purpose. In fact, I now recognise that this is what has been missing from my life for a while now.
“I think I have to give it a go. Especially now since I am financially secure enough to do so.”
Putting away regularly a seemingly small amount of money with the help of Yachting Financial Solutions, provided me with an income to support the lifestyle I needed when I retired. What could be better than that?
“I’m so glad I meet you on the dock in St Maarten. You really understand the ups and downs of yachting, have a clear vision on helping your clients achieve financial freedom. I am always impressed that each year YFSOL keeps adapting and improving.”
