Asia Yachting Group, a leading regional dealer founded and led by Olivier Besson, is partnering with BlackOrange, a boutique superyacht brokerage firm headed by Greg Gheraia. Asia Yachting’s new yacht portfolio includes Prestige, Fountaine Pajot and Nautique, while BlackOrange focuses on 30m-plus superyachts and remains a standalone brand within Asia Yachting Group.


Besson, Asia Yachting’s CEO, said: “BlackOrange is a dynamic independent company with a superyacht sales and charter business that, when partnering with Asia Yachting, will allow us to accelerate our strategic growth plans.”


The acquisition supplements Asia Yachting’s specialisation in luxury yacht dealership, brokerage, management and after-sales service in Asia with BlackOrange’s positioning as a renowned global boutique superyacht brokerage firm.


Both Asia Yachting and BlackOrange have had strong years to date. Asia Yachting has nearly 150 active listings in the luxury yacht sector and has brokered over 15 pre-owned yachts so far this year including 888, a 38m Azimut Grande Trideck delivered in early 2023.


Over the last 10 months, BlackOrange has achieved 10 superyacht sales including the 56m Benetti Lady Candy. It has also brokered other sales and been appointed to market megayachts such as a 155m Lürssen and a 90m Lürssen.


Gheraia, Director of BlackOrange, said: “This partnership will make us even stronger and more effective in ensuring our clients’ best interests. Join us at the upcoming yacht shows in Cannes and Monaco to witness the first wave of our exciting new developments.”
