In a statement, Edmiston predicted that Bond's arrival is likely to fuel the firm's already strong start to the year owing to his performance as one of the industry's leading brokers. His proven record includes more than €950 million in cumulative sales for yachts from a variety of the world's largest shipyards.
Within the past three years, Bond has been responsible for the sale of five yachts from Feadship, four from Amels, three from Heesen, two from Oceanco and one from Abeking & Rasmussen, as well as an array of other yachts longer than 70 metres.
In the case of the 75-metre Feadship Arrow, Bond secured a sale for the €139,900,000 superyacht after only 10 weeks on the market. One week later it was announced that he had also sold the 60-metre Heesen motor yacht Lusine, which had an asking price of $82,000,000.
"I am very pleased to welcome Andrew to the Edmiston team," commented Edmiston CEO Jamie Edmiston. "With an enviable depth of knowledge, he is a disciplined and insightful broker who will immediately fit in with our existing team members. His appointment further cements our position as the leading global brokerage house."
For his part, Bond expressed his enthusiasm to be joining Edmiston after many years spent "watching from afar".
"[Edmiston] are at the cutting edge in terms of their brand and marketing. I am very excited about this next chapter and know that it is the right step on my yachting journey," he said.Read More/75m Feadship superyacht Arrow sold in 10 weeks
