How I got here

Nautical alphabet h

Tim has spent the last 20 years as a broker working with UHNW individuals and served 14 years in the British Army reserve with tours in both Iraq and Afghanistan. His career began in private aviation before moving to superyachts. Growing up in a naval family, he developed an early passion for boats, and the yachting industry was a natural transition. 

Drawing from his experience in larger brokerage houses, he aspired to provide a more personalized service to clients—a level of care that can only be achieved in a boutique firm. This led him to establish TJB Super Yachts in 2013. The swift success of his yacht brokerage speaks volumes about his team’s unwavering commitment and hard work. Running an innovative business with strong ethical values has its challenges, but it is also gratifying, as evidenced by a steady growth in yacht charters and revenue each year. 

Tim prides himself on two core principals; a boutique, personalised service combined with a super high-tech internal infrastructure. His team are mentored at every level to nurture client relationships and provide consistent, highly efficient service. Clients receive the most up-to-date, accurate information as soon as it is released and can use the innovative and intuitive TJB Super Yachts website to build their own itinerary and explore the charter and sales market for themselves. 

Tim Johnson, TJB CEO

“TJB Super Yachts is everything I had wanted from a career.  I love the diversity of clients, the unique characters of the individual vessels and the satisfaction of pairing the right client with the right yacht. Ultimately, the magic of yacht ownership and charter is the quality time it affords you with your friends and family – and every year my passion for the sector grows. Every charter we broker has the TJB ethos at the forefront – creating remarkable experiences for our clients.”
