|'Y.CO has enjoyed a record sales year in 2015, with 7 luxury yachts sold in 7 weeks in the summer, accounting for 25% of total superyacht sales in that period. The average length was 46 metres, 7 metres higher than the industry average, including two AMELS yachts: STEP ONE, the first Limited Editions 180, launched in 2012, and a second exciting Limited Editions 180 new build project sold by Y.CO in June.'
No wonder they want the shares at a penny.|
|Paperwork came through today from Broker with the 1p offer, I'm not selling.
|1p are they avin in a laugh? I wouldn't be happy with 1p as a special divi.
|They are just profiting at our expense - they always have and always will. I will never forget the EGM and the obvious utter contempt for shareholders that oozed from every pore of their smug and overly suntanned skin|
|You're right there!!
Has anyone been able to sell their holdings since the delisting?
|A shame that shareholders have little to celebrate:
Y.CO Discuss Their Impressive Trajectory
Having proven their mettle time and time again after announcing numerous sales and introducing new projects, Y.CO co-founders Charlie Birkett and Gary Wright joined us to talk about their rapid rise to success and what the future holds for the yellow and white brand.
.Casting your eye around Monaco’s Port Hercule harbour, the evidence of the company’s accomplishments is laid bare. The Monte Carlo-based company has come to the principality with a remarkable roster of yachts, and the early signs are that there could be some serious business to be had over the coming days.
Among the Y.CO yachts sitting proudly in the iconic harbour are the 42.1-metre Royal Huisman-built S/Y Hanuman, the 59.3-meytre Benetti-built M/Y Lady Lara and the 39-metre Vitters-built M/Y Cinderella IV.
But that’s far from the entirety of their Monaco showing. Also present are the 38.55-metre Feadship-built M/Y Katrion, the 36.65-metre CNB-built M/Y Hamilton II, the 37.15-metre Fitzroy Yacts-built M/Y Moonbird, the 41.45-metre Palmer Johnson-built M/Y Griffin and the 34.1-metre Royal Huisman-built S/Y Unfurled.
It is some presence for arguably the world’s prestigious yacht show. Y.CO are clearly at the top of their game and show no signs of stopping.

|Agreed. I too am interested in selling my holding at a reasonable price (whatever that might be). Have you managed to get contact details for the broker?
I did a bit of digging some months back (been away for two months)and I understand that Capita are handling these on a matched bargain basis. Have you tried to sell via this route? Checking my notes, I think this is the number for dealing: 08453733479.
Look forward to hearing from other investors stuck in this company.
|I am becoming increasingly certain that there is ABSOLUTELY NO exit strategy by the BoD on behalf of shereholders. The money being made by the company is being completely "reinvested" in shoring up senior executive pay and in particular their lavish jet set lifestyle. Evidence was already produced that demonstrated how management were using the company's coffers as their own personal bank account. What can shareholders do to ensure that management's responsibility to shareholders is taken into account now that YCO is delisted? Seriously interested to speak with other investors who still have sizeable holdings locked in this company|

20 March 2014 by Tom Isitt
Curtis Stokes has been in touch to say that he has sold the 38.7m superyacht Endless Summer, with Steve Elario at Y.CO as the listing broker.
Endless Summer yacht sold with Y.CO
Built with an aluminium hull and superstructure by the prestigious Australian yacht builder Lloyds Ships in 1984, Endless Summer has been regularly upgraded, most recently in 2012 when she underwent extensive refit works and bring her up to pristine condition both inside and out.
Accommodation is for up to 12 guests in five staterooms comprising two very well appointed master suites, a luxurious VIP stateroom, and two triple cabins. Crew quarters accommodate seven crew members. In the engine room, twin 1,250hp Caterpillar 3412E diesel engines give megayacht Endless Summer a top speed of 15.5 knots and a cruising speed of 12.5 knots. Her 46,116 litre fuel tanks and 15,876 litre water tanks give her a very useful cruising range.
Endless Summer was asking $3,375,000.
Y.CO's Gary Wright Talks Revolutionary Launches
Gary Wright of Y.CO, CEO and Co-founder of one of the most exciting brokerage houses in the world, joined Superyachts.com for the launch of the 2014 Top 100 Largest Yachts Forecast to discuss his views on the new entrants into the large yacht fleet.
.Last year was an incredible milestone for the superyacht industry as a wealth of game changing large yachts took to the water.
"I think undoubtedly we have to go straight to the top and look at Azzam," comments Gary. "In a world where we're seeing people really interested in new propulsion systems and new technologies, I think Azzam ticks all of those boxes [...] equally we can look to Feadship for Madame Gu, I think that's a wonderful, wonderful yacht but I like Chopi Chopi from CRN in Italy; which I think goes to show not just the Northern European yards weathered the storm."
Even with the recent crisis befalling yacht builders and brokers across 2009 onward, things are certainly starting to return to a stable level; emphasised by last years launches, and the forecasted arrivals into the Top 100 over 2014.
"I think that those markets we've always looked to remain," explains Gary. "The markets that we work with in the Gulf, in Russia and it's very good to see the United States coming back and the US is coming back very strongly. I don't think we've seen quite the activity from the emerging markets such as China, Brazil and India that we anticipated but the US [...] is going to drive the market over 2014."
