Onlyyacht Opens in Fort Lauderdale

The foundations of The Pastor Group and their involvement in superyachts can be traced back to when the Pastor family arrived in the Monegasque Principality in 1880 from Italy. Jean-Victor and Patrice Pastor, the sons of Victor J.B. Pastor, today continue the family tradition, both in Monaco and abroad.

The group spans construction, real estate, the restaurant industry and most notably insurance through Suisscourtage Assurances, an independent insurance broker servicing international clientele since 1988.

Now the Suisscourtage Group, has announced the opening of its first U.S. office for its Onlyyacht brand. The new office is located at 777 Southeast 20th Street, Suite 210 in the heart of Fort Lauderdale’s yachting business district.

Headquartered in Monaco with offices in key global yachting, aviation and wealth hubs, the group has been operating as an independent insurance broker for more than 25 years. Currently operating offices in Antibes, London, Luxembourg, Monaco, Rotterdam, Viareggio and now Fort Lauderdale, the company advises and assists high-net-worth private clients on all insurance needs offering made to measure solutions for yachts, private aircraft and other luxury assets.

As an independent Lloyd’s broker, Onlyyacht has direct access to the world’s largest insurance market which gives it the opportunity to place and renew client’s policies at constantly improving terms and rates. This direct access is also the guarantee of high confidentiality appreciated by clients.

For the past decade, the company has provided superyacht and crew insurance protection, including superyacht loss or damage, liability protection, crew and guest welfare and claim services. The company currently insures 370 yachts including some of the largest superyachts in the world, more than 3,000 active crew members, and protects more than $6 billion of assets.
