CSO Yachts was created by Mr. Claude LP Schmitt. After 38 successful years of continuous trading he retired from the yachting industry with full confidence in his right hand man for 12 years, Claude Niek. Partner with his spouse Elisabeth Niek, Claude Niek took over in 1998 keeping the same business ethics, professionalism and discretion shared since then by the entire CSO Yachts team.

All sales and charter contracts provided by CSO YACHTS follow the guidelines of MYBA (Worldwide Yacht Broker Association). Claude Niek was a board member and the Vice-President of MYBA from 2004 and 2010 and Elisabeth Niek is the Treasurer of MYBA since 2010.
