Northrop & Johnson (N&J), the global superyacht brokerage and yacht services provider, has expanded its office network with a new base in Monaco and a relocation of its office in Ft Lauderdale, Florida to the Lauderdale Marine Center.
The new N&J office in Monaco is located on the Avenue d’Ostende, overlooking Port Hercule. The company will provide its full portfolio of services, including sales, purchase, new construction, charter retail and charter management, to clients in Monaco and the surrounding region.
Michael Payne, N&J’s managing director for Europe, will head up the Monaco office.
“We’re delighted to now have a base in Monaco,” says Payne. “We are hopeful that our presence in this yachting hot-spot will bolster our regional and global recognition and allow us continue the impressive growth that the company has enjoyed throughout the past few years.
“We are bringing on a team of exceptionally skilled brokers and look forward to offering a total-service approach for yachting clients in Monaco and beyond.”
N&J COO Daniel Ziriakus says Monaco is a huge next step for the company. “Michael Payne is assembling an impressive team of renowned sales and charter brokers who will begin working with us in the coming weeks. We will be fully operational by the end of February 2018.”
N&J’s other European offices are located in Antibes, Palma and the Netherlands.

The new office will bring all N&J divisions under one roof. Brokerage and new construction, charter retail, charter management and crew services all will be housed in the new suite, which has been completely rebuilt for the company. The 10,000sq ft office will have two conference rooms, multiple meeting areas, office suites for all brokers, a full galley, gym and ample space for growth.
