About us

Yachting Scandinavia AS was formed in 2000. Although the services we provided in the beginning were limited, we helped yachts enjoy Scandinavia and supplied information where required. From 2004 the company has gained in strength with the addition of key personnel.

Yachting Scandinavia AS is the brainchild of Sam Bugge, a Norwegian who started sailing at a very early age on the South Coast of Norway. After working as a Captain on a wide variety of large superyachts for the past 12 years he decided to consolidate his knowledge and contacts in the marine industry into what became Yachting Scandinavia AS.
After having gained his Norwegian Class 5 he went on to gain the English RYA qualifications of Offshore and Ocean YachtMaster, and then to gain his MCA Class 4 Master licence in 2003(yachts<3000 tons, worldwide operation)

After having sailed, raced, chartered and refitted large yachts around the world including 8 trans Atlantic passages, circumnavigating the world via the Pacific Ocean and Indian Ocean, cruising and racing in America, Caribbean, Mediterranean, Atlantic Europe and of course in Scandinavian waters, and having worked for an international clientele his broad experience will benefit a larger audience.

Seeing the trend towards larger and larger sail and power yachts combined with the inherent limitations and skyrocketing costs of the traditional cruising grounds of the Mediterranean and the Caribbean, he envisions a move towards less exploited and more genuine waters like Scandinavia. Also, considering the recent terrorist threats in most of Eastern Europe, Red Sea and the Americas combined with the political instability of Asia and recent SARS outbreaks he fully believes that the Owner of a large yacht may wish to seek out less troubled waters.
