Senior Management Team

A Look Back at Our Company History

Yacht Carbon Offset was formed in 2008, introducing a unique opportunity for clients to support renewable energy projects worldwide. That same year, M.Y. Lionheart made waves as one of the first superyachts to come on board!

In 2009, we got approval from Lloyd’s Register Quality Assurance for our Quality Management System following the ISO 9001: 2008 standards, and we’ve been renewing this certification every year since.

Our superyacht client base continued to grow, and our services expanded to include other big players like the shipyard MB92, the MYBA Charter Show, and the Antigua Charter Yacht Meeting. It’s been quite a journey!

Joining our fleet are S.Y. Hyperion and S.Y. Twizzle, adding to the growing list of superyachts supporting our mission towards a more sustainable yachting industry.

In 2012, we welcomed M.Y. Baton Rouge and M.Y. Meamina as our community of environmentally conscious superyacht clients continued to grow.

Experiencing remarkable customer growth, we expanded our team to support the increasing demand for our carbon offsetting services.

In a pivotal moment, Rachel Goult, a seasoned professional with 20 years of renewable energy project experience, becomes our Managing Director, further enriching our expertise.

Setting a new course, we extend our commitment to carbon reduction by supporting our first marine-based projects, Mikoko Pamoja and Vanga Blue, in Kenya.

As part of our dedication to environmental preservation, we introduce the option for clients to donate to our partner charities, further enhancing their action to preserve the health of our oceans.
