Yacht Crew, Start Your Wine Collection!

We all like a spot of plonk every now and again but, have you ever thought about having a large collection of wine for your home once you leave the yachting industry?

Or have you ever thought about wine for a long-term investment? Wine investment is safe and exciting and what’s the worst that can happen? You have to drink it!

Onshore Private Reserves is the answer.


Lets start from the beginning.

Ed and I worked on yachts for seven years. We always had an interest in wine, which is what lead us to leave and start a wine provisioning company for yachts called Onshore Cellars. As the years went by on yachts the desire to go out every night became less and less and we started thinking about the future! (Yes we all grow up eventually!)

We wanted a collection of wine in our house when we finally left the industry and we also wanted to make a smart investment. So we started a cellar.

We bought wine for a number of reasons. Whether it was for investment, to buy more of a wine we liked from a restaurant or for christening presents for our friend’s children.

We wanted to share the same opportunity to you so we started Onshore Private Reserves. 

We understand you have limited room on board and that you might not have a permanent home as yet. So we have designed Onshore Private Reserves specifically with yacht crew in mind.

We offer a route to purchase wines for your cellar and bonded storage in London to keep your wines in perfect condition. Guaranteeing their provenance and so that you are not disappointed when pulling the cork.

In addition we offer a viable route to market should you want to sell your investment wine back to yacht owners once they have reach maturity through OSCX, our unique trading platform.


The whole process is easy and so interesting!

If you need advice we are here to help. If you want to build a cellar purely for investment, we can suggest wines based on the latest market analysis. We will only suggest wines that have a proven track record in the secondary market.

Now when it comes to sending your wine home, this is easy. We have chosen London for our bonded cellars as it is a central hub in the world. We know you may not have decided where you will live after yachting. Maybe you will move to Palma or Antibes or go back to the Southern Hemisphere. So with your wine stored in London it is ideally located to ship anywhere you may end up. Once you are ready to send your wine home, you just name the place and we do the rest. You can send one bottle or your entire collection, its up to you. Costs can be as little as £1.50 per bottle to Australia.

We already have a number of yacht crew signed up and starting to make their purchases. Remember this doesn’t have to be an expensive activity. You can spend as little or as much as you like and still have a wonderful cellar to either enjoy in the years to come or as a tangible investment.
