Braemar SA, the multi-disiplinary Marine Surveying and Technical Consultancy arm of Braemar Technical Services (BTS) has announced a key appointment to further strengthen its yacht services capability.

 

The Company’s latest recruit, Stefano Scarpa, joins Braemar SA’s well established team of marine consultants and surveyors specialising in yacht services and brings with him a wealth of experience to this important sector.


Stefano is a maritime professional with 15 years’ experience in working in the superyacht market, including experience in design, naval architecture consulting and project management. In his previous role as Senior Naval Architect and Project Manager with a major international superyacht specialist, he reviewed and monitored the design and construction of new build yachts on behalf of yacht owners, in addition to carrying out pre-purchase surveys, warranty surveying and technical due diligence for financial institutions.


“Alongside our traditional services Braemar SA has a well-established global yacht surveying and consultancy capability,” says Nigel Clark, Managing Director of Braemar SA. “With a broad base of experts strategically located around the world, including within the important yacht centres such as London, Miami and Dubai, we are ideally placed to further expand our range of services in this exciting sector of the market and we are delighted to welcome Stefano on board. His move to Braemar SA will add a new dimension to the team and contribute to our continued growth in this sector.


Although technically the challenges facing the surveyor or consultant when dealing with superyachts can be very similar to those when dealing with other vessels, there are still always some differences in approach that make this a niche sector requiring specific skills.”
