Superyacht Tenders & Toys (SYTT) was awarded the British Marine Business of the Year Award during a celebratory dinner in Southampton on 26th March, fulfilling the criteria of a business ‘showing excellence in 2018’. This is the third major award in its seven year history, having won British Marine’s Best Employer Award in 2018 and a Queen’s Award for International Trade in 2017.
“The company’s success is down to our dedicated staff and the specialist consultancy and project management we offer to the world’s most advanced superyachts. It’s fantastic to have the recognition for all the hard work we are putting in to the business.” said SYTT managing director, Josh Richardson.

In 2018, SYTT won British Marine’s Best Employer Award and placed 45th in the Sunday Times Lloyds SME Export Track 100 - a year where the company grew sales by 38%, employed five more UK staff and also increased the size of its premises. Export sales account for 95% of the business with orders coming from Brazil, Australia, NZ, USA, the Middle East and Europe.
Also in 2018, SYTT commissioned and managed the world’s deepest diving personal submersible ever to go onto a superyacht, and commissioned 21 custom tenders to UK manufacturers.
“Thanks must go to the British Marine Trades Association for organising a fantastic evening." said SYTT senior project and sales manager, Richard Booth who collected the award (pictured above). "Whilst the majority of our business is exporting, it’s hugely beneficial that we have the opportunity to share insight and collaborate with companies in the UK.”
