SYT iQ is the virtual superyacht intelligence expert for every key decision maker or discerning
yacht owner.

The superyacht business is a very confidential industry which means information can often be
limited, inconsistent or simply wrong.

There is a need, therefore, for an intelligence system that provides accurate and reliable intel
that enables users to draw the right conclusions and make the best business decisions.
Here are 10 reasons why our system, SYT iQ, (also available as an app) is an essential tool:

1. A comprehensive fleet database (10,261 yachts 24m+):

It contains the most accurate and comprehensive database on the global superyacht fleet
(10,261 yachts), and is approximately 99% complete for yachts over 30m.
SYT iQ goes the extra mile, providing detailed information on sales, refits, casualties, flags,
owners, contact details and location.

2. Construction book insights (833 yachts in-build):

We give rare insights into the construction books of superyacht builders. Gathering information
on the new-build segment is challenging and time-consuming, but we do it because it offers
users the possibility of assessing the current state of the market as well as identifying potential
business opportunities.

3. We know the sales market (12,000 deals):

SYT iQ provides vast information on yacht sales over 24m, new yachts coming onto market,
price reductions, days on market, and central agents making sure you are always ahead of the
You can not only find the best deals available on today’s market, but analyse the records of all
yacht sales in recent years, identifying new trends.

4. We know the owners (3,603 of them):

Discover the owners of yachts, plus their current and historic fleets. An owner is only listed after
being verified through meticulous research. Discovering information such as owners'
nationalities can help identify markets and trends.

5. Receive daily updates:

In a daily email our iQ users are notified about the latest name changes, price changes, yachts
launched, new completions, sold yachts and new listings.
Everything you need to know can be found in one email. SYT iQ also utilises short notes for
as-and-when news announcements. Be it casualties, sales rumours, owner names or auctions.

6. Discover industry professionals:

We provide contact details for superyachts, shipyards, companies, senior crew, and project
managers. SYT iQ users have access to the contact details of more than 3,100 professionals
and 6,700 companies.

7. Customise searches

You can customise our data to your own requirements, monitoring a specific segment or fleet of
yachts, and receiving direct updates on any type of activities within the fleet.
We make sure you get the information you need.

8. Learn a yacht's history

SYT iQ not only provides the latest data and updates, but also comprehensive information on
the yacht's history, including past sales, casualties, refits, past owners and crew.
We are tracking all yachts out-of-service and casualties caused by damages, fire or sinking.

9. Refit histories and current status (11,000)

You can track a boat's refit history as well as the latest yachts going into refit, including the
location and type of work. Thanks to our contact information, this can be a great source of
potential business for suppliers.

10. Put together by experts (the SYT Intelligence Team)

Finding the right information about the superyacht market does not only take a lot of time but
also requires knowledge and principles. We have established a strict set of guidelines to make
sure we can present the most accurate data.

data-points every day. Through our live chat the team can react quickly to any questions from
