Adrian Tinkler joins the global superyacht brokerage from Burgess

Adrian Tinkler has been appointed yacht management partner at Yachting Partners International (YPI), the bespoke luxury yacht brokerage that specialises in personalised yacht sales, charter and management services to global clients. He is tasked with growing and overseeing the operations of the yacht management department as part of the company’s forward-looking direction under new strategic leadership.

Tinkler joins YPI after having worked for over 13 years as fleet technical manager at Burgess. In this role, he worked across and managed all yacht requirements during operational, refit and new build periods since 2006.

Prior to this, Tinkler served on several large yachts as an engineer and chief engineer for more than a decade.

YPI director Abdullah Nahar says: “We are delighted to welcome Adrian to the YPI family. His deep knowledge and experience of the industry will be an invaluable asset to our yacht management operations and throughout the company, as we continue to increase our presence in the industry. With Adrian onboard, we are one step closer to achieving that goal.”

Founded in 1972, YPI is one of the world’s oldest superyacht houses. The company was acquired by by Mercantile & Maritime Investments (M&MI), the investment division of the Singapore-headquartered group, in September last year.
