A new specialist deck hardware company has been launched by the founders of Superyacht Tenders and Toys (SYTT) following increased demand for quality superyacht deck equipment.

Josh and Claire Richardson’s Shipyard Supply Co (SSCo) will be headed up by Luke Porter, a former project manager at Oyster Yachts with superyacht industry experience, who will oversee operations.

Mr Richardson commented: “By launching Shipyard Supply Co. we are evolving with the superyacht market and meeting the rapid growth in the demand for deck hardware.

“The new business will operate as a separate entity handling the manufacture and supply of everything from tender whips and fenders to custom stainless steel and carbon projects.

“This allows SSCo to go beyond the scope of SYTT products and form new relationships and distributorships within the industry and we are very excited to have Luke onboard to manage all of this.”

Peter Emmons, technical sales at SYTT, will join Mr Porter at SSCo as technical manager, handling all deck equipment enquiries. However, he will continue to work closely with current SYTT clients, assuming a dual role to bridge the gap between the two companies in the early days.

Since its launch in 2011, SYTT has seen year-on-year growth, particularly in its deck equipment division.
