Kevin Glancy Established With His First Superyacht Order, M.Y. Mi Gaea

Before entering the yacht business, my previous life was in the motor trade. One day a friend of mine invited me to lunch in London with a couple of his clients. Over lunch one of these men, who I later found out was a yacht designer, asked me what I did for a living and before I could open my mouth my friend said, "Kevin will get you anything in the world". We got chatting and to both of our surprise it transpired that I had retrimmed a car which he now owned. Later that night, back at home in Manchester, I received a fax saying, "To 'The Man Who Can Get Anything In The World', can you get me some Baccarat Crystal?" Having no idea what it was, I asked my wife who suggested that it sounded French, so I phoned the French Embassy and the rest is history.

Jonathan Fawcett Established

It was a matter of timing, to be perfectly honest. My father's craft was making marine models, and he had been working on a model of a particular 50m yacht which I helped him hand-deliver to the shipyard. That was my first glimpse of the interior of a superyacht and, as simplistic as it sounds, I thought there might be a gap in the market for outfitting yachts as not many people were really doing it 30 years' ago (although, there was a young Kevin Glancy already covering the tableware side of things.). I decided to progress and start researching the linen side of the process. I started in Ireland, went on to Italy, and then it went from there really. I developed a fond affinity for the industry that has never left me, and here we are today decades later!
