We escaped the golden bubble. Now we live life on our terms. Let us help you do the same.

Imagine this: by the time I was 38 I had built one of the most successful sales teams ever at one of the world's biggest life assurance companies. I had two company cars and was on big money. Really BIG money. I thought it would never end. But it did. Not slowly, but in the blink of an eye, after a corporate takeover.
The rewards and the lifestyle were gone. Money, cars, house—pop! I was left with a former holiday home in the south of France.
That's where Yachting Financial Solutions (Ireland) DAC (YFSOL for short) was born. I saw crew on board superyachts earning big money and enjoying a lifestyle most people couldn't even imagine. And I saw time and again how it was taken away from them in an instant. They were in a golden bubble they thought would last forever. But the bubble always pops.
So I dedicated my life to helping superyacht crew use their time in the bubble to achieve financial freedom and live a life of independent happiness.
For decades now, Yachting Financial Solutions have been the premiere financial planners dedicated solely to superyacht crew.
Having served super yacht crew for over 30 years, I know there are other people I can help. The super rich employ personal chefs, chauffeurs, secretaries and assistants, butlers, pilots... all manner of people who provide a vital, dedicated service. They all live inside the same fragile golden bubble.
By now, I've done it all, seen it all and (quite frankly) worn the t-shirt so many times, I've had to bin it. If you are one of the 10% of people who work for the super rich and want out of the bubble, I can help you build your dream life. Or if not me, then Teresa, my wife—she's the gentler one of us. By the way, can you believe she chose me over working with a huge-name rock star? (I'm as surprised as you are, even after all these years.)

Imagine having to choose between working for a big rockstar or building a business and an independent life for yourself. That’s the choice I had to make.
Cheffing for a rockstar has its appeal. But, instead, I chose me. I chose to build an independent life on my terms. A life based on what was important to me.

I joined Yachting Financial Solutions (Ireland) DAC (YFSOL for short) because I knew it would allow me to help others do the same—specifically superyacht crew. I knew the sacrifices they were making. I also understood the incredible opportunity they had to use their time in yachting to build lasting wealth and independence for themselves. And a happy and fulfilling life.
