Time spent working in high-end events, paired with this long tenure in the yachting industry and extensive knowledge of the best cruising grounds in the world, has built Sofia a reputation for creating unique and unforgettable charter holidays. With a complementary skillset Thérèse boasts many years in the luxury travel industry, including running a boating company and founding a luxury travel agency. Making use of a deep understanding of what is needed to craft the perfect vacation experience paired with a passion for tailoring a charter to the individual client, Thérèse will use her knowledge and expertise to help to craft custom charter packages for clients and offer a full “concierge package.”

The new IYC Scandinavia office was opened in response to a growing interest in the yachting world from Scandinavian countries and a desire for IYC to always be based on the ground in key yachting hubs around the world. “ Boats and the sea is in our blood and we are daily surrounded by it up here in the North” says. Sofia Nordlinder. “Scandinavia is an emerging market within the yachting scene, that is fast expanding, and we are here to educate and enable clients from this region in realizing their yachting dreams. As a Scandinavian broker that has working in the yachting industry for more than 15 years it is amazing to see the yachting lifestyle finally picking up in this part of the world.”

This growing interest in luxury yachting and charter holidays is a natural step for Scandinavian residents, with a yachting culture inherent in the region and boating a longstanding part of Scandinavian culture and heritage. Part of an ongoing goal for IYC Scandinavia will be working with their local clients to help them enjoy the best that the luxury yacht market has to offer. “Within the high end travel market we have seen that Scandinavian clients are now looking for a different way to travel and it is clear that yachting is the ultimate way to spend a vacation and see the best of destinations around the world,” says Thérèse Kristoffersen. “At IYC Scandinavia we are looking forward to spreading the message about luxury yachting and helping to create unforgettable memories on the water for our clients.”

As a cruising destination Scandinavia is also proving increasingly popular thanks to its beautiful scenery and stunning waters, including the Norwegian fjords, a host of islands, many major cities on the water, including Stockholm, and plenty for visiting yachts to see and do. As well as serving the local client base the IYC Scandinavia team will also be delighted to offer expert advice to anyone looking to visit this beautiful part of the world.
