Edmiston welcomes new Director of Yacht Management to the team

Edmiston is delighted to announce the appointment of Chris Andreason as the new Director of Yacht Management. Chris brings a wealth of experience through his illustrious 40-year career, with a diverse portfolio of work across many different marine disciplines, from sea to shoreside.

His career began in the Navy at the age of 16 and since then he has served in wide range of roles as an officer, superyacht captain, build captain, build project manager and most recently as a marine consultant. Throughout his career, he has worked on warships, trials vessels, training ships and superyachts, and has extensive shipyard experience with new builds and refit projects for both yachts and warships.

Chris is passionate about building a strong and educated team who he can support and empower through the mentorship he brings. Edmiston shares his vision for the future of yacht management, and we are thrilled to have him onboard.

“What I have realised is that many of the issues captains experience are shared, and it is likely that I myself have experienced them during my career. Helping others to overcome those problems and challenges is really what makes me tick and is certainly a big part of what we want to bring into Edmiston’s Yacht Management department.” – Chris Andreason.

Chris recognises the responsibility of the yacht management team to support the owners and captains with the right level of operational, technical, financial, and administrative knowledge. In his new role, he joins a number of highly experienced team members who will continue to inspire confidence within the Edmiston team and for our clients.

“All the things that are important to me align with Edmiston’s mentality. They are committed to crew welfare, the leadership and mentoring of the team, and are determined to be a force for good. Having a platform to address the challenges that people face within this sector is very exciting.” – Chris Andreason.
