Yacht charter broker Helm re-acquired by founders

The London-based yacht charter broker Helm has been re-acquired by its founders, Peter Harrison-Hill and Simon Morgan, after being sold to Borrow A Boat.

Harrison-Hill and Morgan co-founded the yacht charter broker Helm in 2015, having worked in the charter industry for many years, first as skippers and then as brokers, before selling the company to yacht charter and boat hire business Borrow A Boat in June 2021. The pair continued to work within the group to provide stability during the uncertain economic climate post-pandemic.

Since the Borrow A Boat acquisition, Helm has grown and thrived, delivering almost 700 booked charters in 2022. The company is on course for over 1,000 charters for summer 2023. Charter destinations include Croatia, Greece, the British Virgin Islands, the Balearic Islands and Thailand.

Morgan said:

The transaction was led by specialist business advisory firm FRP.

Harrison-Hill and Morgan will resume the day-to-day running of the Helm brand. The duo say they are keen to emphasise that existing charters remain unaffected.
