Royale Oceanic manages yachts registered within the UK, Cayman Islands, Isle of Man, Bermuda and Marshall Islands. All ‘Documents of Compliance’ are held in the Royale Oceanic Newcastle Office which has developed into the hub for the yacht management division.

Whilst Newcastle may not be the first location you think of when discussing super yachts, there are some key operational advantages to the location, which play into the hands of the professional yacht management team as they focus on regulatory compliance.

Newcastle-Upon-Tyne is steeped in nautical history and the Royale Oceanic office is based on the quayside where in days past hundreds of ships were built and thousands of skilled locals employed. Whilst the shipyards have now all but disappeared, the infrastructure and labour has remained in the North East of England, and Royale Oceanic Yacht Management are surrounded by well-established blue chip companies within the commercial shipping sectors as well as some surprising names in the yachting world.

Within 5 minutes of the Royale Oceanic office there are large commercial shipping offices for the likes of AP Moller Maersk, Technip, Bernard Schulte, Svitzer, OSG Ship Management, GL Nobel Denton, ASP Ship Management …….. the list goes on! With the presence of so many shipping companies, there has been the natural migration of shipping law firms, classification societies, insurance underwriters and P&I Clubs being based within the city limits, all of which Royale Oceanic have close connections to.

The MCA’s Large Yacht Division – ‘Ensign’ – is based in the Port of Tyne and minutes away from the Merchant Navy Training College ‘South Shields Marine School’ where thousands of seafarers attend short courses, conduct apprenticeship training and use their state of the art simulators and facilities to further their maritime education.

With a well-served international airport and Port of Tyne being one of the UK's major deep sea ports, the Newcastle area has excellent access to the global maritime community which is why this Royale Oceanic office has been developed into the home of the Yacht Management Division.
