Blue Marine Yacht Club
The ocean’s favourite club.
Launched in 2012 by His Serene Highness Prince Albert II of Monaco, Blue Marine Yacht Club (BMYC) was formed to unite the world’s yachting community in a clear mission to protect our oceans.
The BMYC brings a modern approach to environmental protection. Whether a yacht owner or company, the BMYC provides a platform in which supporters can express their concern for the ocean and desire to protect its future. By donating, providing their support and expertise, they are part of a project that is bringing about real change in the way our oceans are cared for. They are providing a legacy for the world that their children and grandchildren will look back on with pride.
All donations received through the BMYC go directly to support BLUE’s work around the world and its mission of protecting at least 30% of the world’s ocean by 2030.
BMYC members play an active role in ensuring that our seas remain a resource to be enjoyed by future generations. It is only through acting together that we can really make a difference.
Supporters of BMYC are recognised by three tiers of membership which indicate the level of commitment and their donation to BLUE and the ocean environment.
Since its launch, the BMYC has attracted influential supporters from the yachting industry including: Ernesto and Kirsty Bertarelli, Sir Charles Dunstone, Peter Lürssen, Winch Design, Imperial Yachts, Benetti, Feadship, Princess Zahra Aga Khan, Matthew Freud, and Simon Le Bon among others.
Joining the BMYC is an elite statement of intent by a group of people who have a unique ability to influence the way the ocean is treated for years to come.
Founder Imperial Yachts, 3 star BMYC member
“It is with pride that we at Imperial support BLUE in their ongoing projects and campaigns. Since Andrew Winch introduced us in 2016 for the inaugural London to Monaco cycle ride, we have increased our support year after year. Becoming a BMYC member during the 2019 Monaco Yacht Show has formalised this long-term relationship and, as long as BLUE keeps pursuing its goals and educating the younger generations about ocean conservation, we will do all we can to support the team and echo their successes.”
BMYC Founding Patron
“It is through strong institutional partnerships, such as the one between my Foundation and the Blue Marine Foundation that we can fight against climate change and manage our natural resources responsibly.”
CEO of Lürssen Yachts, 2 star BMYC member
“It is an honour to be a 3-Star Member of the Blue Marine Yacht Club. And at the same time it is a strong motivation to continue our support for BLUE and especially helping to organise the creation of marine protected areas. The state of the oceans is degrading at an alarming rate and it is our responsibility towards the future generations to help save the oceans and the marine life. Everyone can make a contribution – no matter how small – to make a difference.”
