ABOUT us

YOUR YACHT
DISCOVERY EXPERTS

BehneMar was founded over 15 years ago on the simple premise to deliver uncompromising excellence in superyachting. We are your experts, your consultants and your partners. We are your voice of experience and your counsel. We offer you a bespoke, highly personal service that spans the superyacht fleet, from under 100ft to over 100m.

From superyacht purchase and new build to yacht management and charter, our leadership team has, in total, more than 50 years’ experience in the superyacht sector. You have direct access to this and our select network of partners – from designers and naval architects to leading shipyards and beyond.

You need a team who are resilient and relentless in their quest to provide you the right level of service. And we understand that the difference between ordinary and extraordinary is that little extra.

Facts

If you have the right people, you don’t need a lot of people

OUR TEAM

The Family Office for superyachts

Dr. Rainer Behne

Chairman

A trained medical doctor, life-long entrepreneur and yacht owner, he is the founder and Chairman of BehneMar. His background, incorporating sectors across real estate, private banking and marine services, offers clients an unequalled and more worldly level of expertise and personal service - unique in yachting. 

His personal experience is the basis on which we assist our clients to this day. It allows us to provide our renowned personal consultancy – and has allowed him to turn his hobby into a business. 

His passion for innovation and technology is echoed in his personal life. From collectors’ cars to advances in health technology, he pursues a lifestyle focused on being active and healthy.

Tim Trenker

Chief Executive Officer

A renowned expert across automotive and powered sports, Tim’s passion for innovative design and technology comes from his time as a FIM Cross Country Rally World Champion. His attention soon evolved from the automotive world to focus on superyachts. 

Tim has been leading specialist projects across the MENA region for over 30 years. Now, having lived in multiple countries and travelled extensively, Tim is using his experience to lead BehneMar’s evolution and growth.

Outside of work, Tim prioritises a healthy and sustainable lifestyle, either unwinding in the dunes or on the waves indulging his passion for outdoor sports.

Hisham ABUSHAKRA

Executive Director

As one of the first members of the BehneMar family team, Hisham is a highly valued team member who brings extensive understanding of our clients – and across the Middle East and its cultures in particular. With his auto mechanic diploma, his passion for yachts is a natural evolution from his background in the luxury automotive sector.

Generous with his time and knowledge, Hisham also enjoys sharing his rich Lebanese heritage, from traditions to cuisine. 

Florian Vinciguerra

Yacht Consultant

Despite being one of the younger members of the BehneMar team, Florian shares the same passion for superyachts. Indeed, following the mantra of a healthy mind in a healthy body, Florian spends as much time in and on the water as possible. His favourite quote “No wave too big” can equally be applied to his approach to work.

Graduating in engineering and business, Florian knew his career would combine his passions for the sea, technology and commerce. 

Gregory Alice

Regional Manager

Gregory was destined for a life in yachting. He achieved his first skipper’s licence at the age of 16, before moving to a yacht consultancy by the time he was 20. With a thirst for knowledge and ardour for his work, Gregory has built his experience delivering yachts across Africa, the Middle East and Mediterranean.  

A quick thinker and doer, Gregory brings more maritime experience to the BehneMar team.
