With New Investors Camper and Nicholson’s Face Brighter Future


The deal is done, the dust has settled, the uncertainty banished, Camper and Nicholson’s International has new owners.

Confirming that the sale had been successfully concluded C.O.O Laurent Perignon commented: “Despite the turmoil of the global financial crisis, Camper and Nicholson’s International has always remained solid, which demonstrates the strength of our business and brand. We are now delighted to have new investors committed to growth and development.”

He added, “It is pleasing that our new shareholders have a long and proud history, sharing the same outlook and values that have made Camper and Nicholsons the standard in superyacht brokerage and management services. We look forward to taking our organisation to even greater heights in the coming years and to demonstrating that ultimately good customer service, integrity and honesty are the values that superyacht owners appreciate.

The transaction came about from the personal relationship, between Brook Hazelton, former CEO of international art auction house Phillips, and Eric de Saintdo, who was not only a former CEO at Camper and Nicholson’s International and a director of the company behind the Cannes Yacht Show.

Together they worked with Colosseum Services a company based in Switzerland in order to secure the financial backing necessary to complete the acquisition and provide the resources enabling the company to enhance its leadership position at the forefront of the yachting industry.
