Neal Jones Furniture (NJF) and IYC are delighted to announce a new partnership to offer world-wide, streamlined luxury marine furniture procurement.
IYC is one of the largest international yachting companies, with over 130 passionate professionals based in 15 strategically located offices around the globe. They offer yacht sales and purchases, chartering, yacht management, charter management, yacht agency services, crew management, insurance & claims management, and new build consultation. Most recently, IYC have sold three 70m new-build Admiral GC-Force 70 superyachts, and featured at the Monaco Grand Prix.
Neal Jones Furniture specialises in luxury bespoke and semi-custom marine and residential furniture and for the last 15 years has been crafting furniture in the UK for a huge range of well-known and high-profile clients. Working with IYC, NJF will be able to offer a tailored design service to customers to ensure their new yacht (or their refitted or refurbished yacht) is fitted out in the utmost quality and luxurious furniture, inside and out.
“I am absolutely delighted to be able to announce our new partnership with IYC,” says NJF founder and creative director, Neal Jones. “They are the go-to for yacht sales and deals, and their service mentality and ethos aligns with our own ideals perfectly. We stand for quality beyond compare, and we are thrilled to be able to offer our services to IYC’s clients going forward.”
“Our service approach is all about putting the decision making in the hands of our customers, and having a company like Neal Jones Furniture on board allows us to give our customers all the options they need to fit their yacht in the very best furniture,” says Raphael Sauleau, CEO of IYC. “If a more paired-back commercial design is needed, we can provide that, if something bespoke and out-there is desired, we can provide that too – or anything in between. It’s a great partnership and the people going to benefit most are our fantastic customers.”
This partnership means that IYC will have a furniture expert on hand at all stages of a project, including at tradeshows, events and initial customer meetings, to ensure that the customer’s vision is viable, achievable within budget, and to offer guidance on aspects such as material choice and design decisions.
“We pride ourselves on being that one-stop-shop for all yacht purchasers and charterers, and having people with the expertise in every aspect on yachts is key to our business and the delight of our customers,” adds Raphael.
“Working with IYC not only allows us to get our message and long-standing expertise out there,” says Neal, “but it means we can offer the very best prices possible, to ensure we meet everyone’s budgets as required.”
