We started as a very small team with a small boat called Crystal Blue. Well, actually it wasn’t a small boat it was a 24 metre luxury Super Yacht.
We started referring to it as the “small boat” when we launched the YOT Club, the worlds first Super Yacht entertainment venue, 23 metres wide (as wide as Crustal Blue is long) x 40 metres long, licensed for 400 guests over two luxurious levels.
We designed and built the YOT Club right here on the Gold Coast at the Coomera Marine precinct. From an initial napkin sketch to the official launch on the 9th of March 2019, the YOT Club was a monumental two year construction project requiring over 20,000 hours to complete the build.
Following the launch, and great reaction to the YOT Club name, we renamed Crystal Blue to YOT Blue and adding to the luxury fleet, this September we will launch a 22 metre luxury motor catamaran called YOT 75.
Across the current fleet, we have a passenger capacity of 530 people and exciting plans for a new 100ft Super Yacht vessel later this year.
When reading about our story, it’s easy to get the impression we are in the big luxury boat business. However, this couldn’t be further from the truth.
We pride ourselves on being in the hospitality business – “the friendly and generous reception of guests, visitors or strangers”, in our case, “on very big luxury boats”
We understood from the start that the boats create the “wow” factor as you step aboard (no denying the boats are very cool), but the real enjoyment, the fun and happiness factor that build long lasting memories, and ultimately a sense of fulfilment come from much more.
Those feelings come from a combination of a lot of things that are more tangible – great friendly service, delicious food, new and exciting drinks, music you just want to get up and dance to and views that are hard to replicate on land, all while cruising at a leisurely 6 knots watching the world go by.
Whether you are a couple enjoying Lunch on the YOT or you’re hosting a corporate event for 300 associates, the same principles apply. Enjoyment and lasting memories come from great hospitality and that’s the business we are in, that we strive for continuous improvement every day.
