Glynn is the president and owner of Ethereal Yachts which was founded in 2021. He is originally from Southampton, England where his hobby of sailing swiftly turned into a passion for boats in general and by the age of 19, he moved to Italy as a mate on a private sailing yacht. He quickly moved up the ranks and became a captain at the age 23. After many years captaining sailing yachts, he transitioned to superyachts (up to 200 ft./60 meters) chartering in the Mediterranean, Bahamas, Caribbean, US, and Central America. Glynn is a fully qualified MCA 3000-ton superyacht captain. He has encompassed 14 exceptional Mediterranean charter seasons and eight Caribbean charter seasons on high-profile charter yachts supplying clients with the highest service possible. His 23 years on yachts uniquely positions him to truly understand every aspect of yacht operations, including refit, project management, crew management, new construction, systems, and yacht ownership. Glynn specializes in sales, new construction and charter and has sold and built some of the largest, most expensive yachts in the world ranging from 15 meters to 90 meters (40ft-300ft). He is exceptional at not only guiding the client through the purchasing process but also at how to maximize the nuanced experience of owning a yacht. Having been in the yachting industry for over 30 years, Glynn has been able to cultivate close relationships with industry experts, including but not limited to, yacht management, construction, and tax and maritime law experts. Because of this, his service to clients is unmatched. In his spare time, Glynn enjoys spending time with his son who has shared interests in boxing, golf, and sport shooting.
