Who are we?

Kismet is a team of people with diverse skills, working to provide advice and assistance in many different areas. We work both for individuals and for businesses. Between us, our experience covers the travel industry (especially winter sports), property search and construction, the leisure boating industry including liveaboard worldwide cruising, technical marine equipment, management consultancy services, finance and accounting, digital marketing and website development, operations management, business strategy and planning, procurement and logistics, supply chain management and international business environments.

We have owned and worked for small owner/operator businesses and also for large multi-national organisations. Our experience covers several countries and cultures and we each speak several European languages. The one thing we have in common is yachts, the Alps and travel so most of what we do is connected to that one way or another.

Our mission is to provide cost-effective and practical help of all sorts to small businesses and individuals. Maybe you want to create a personal travel blog or small business website and need help to put it together? Or your business is struggling and you need external assistance or advice? Are you looking to buy a new yacht or upgrade what you have? We can track down the perfect vessel for you at the best price – both new and pre-loved – and help you design and procure all your systems.

Are you looking for a perfect rental property or holiday home in the Alps? Using our contacts and on the ground knowledge, we can source stunning properties before they come on the market and search for the right one for you. If you want to build your own, we can look for a building plot and guide you through the process. Our relationships with local builders and advisors and our project management skills support you all the way.

Whatever your need – get in touch today and see how we could help!
