Why choose us
We’re the genuine Yachting Financial Solutions. 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. We have ex-yacht crew at all levels of our company. We know your world. And we know how to help you make the most of your career in yachting.
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. 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
“Dear Clive, Teresa and the rest of the YFSOL team,
“I just wanted to drop you a quick note to say a big thank you!
“It really is nice to work with a company that truly do understand the needs of us ‘Yachties’
“Over the period of setting up my YFSOL relationship I had lots of things going on – a family holiday, training and a major change in job that lead to me having very little time for personal things. Through all of this you managed to meet my needs and move calls to times that suited both parties, you were patient and understanding – for this I thank you.
“I get such a rush logging into my account through the website to see how my investment is doing, the currency converter is a very handy tool as it allows me to convert back to my home currency.
“Throughout the whole process from start to now I have been extremely satisfied with the service I have received, the professionalism that all your staff have towards your clients and availability of information available at just a click of a mouse. I have and do not hesitate to recommend YFSOL to anyone that will listen!
“Keep up the great work guys and a huge thank you!
“Hopefully one day soon I will be able to buy you a drink!”James
“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.”Clara
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.Kerry
“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.”Laura
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?Joe
“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.”Andrea
