The Bond Group will again be at Monaco Yacht Show! We are also celebrating our 10th year in the business, and welcome you to join us throughout the show for a glass of champagne or a cold beverage.

Having completely designed and managed the AV/IT & Communications of the 3 largest yachts in the world, our experienced engineers will be on the stand to discuss any of your new build and refit questions.

Congratulations go out to Denis Butko, based in the Bond TM Amsterdam office, who recently passed his Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) course and was the first Level 1 IT engineer to be promoted to Level 2 within the company.


Denis joined Bond TM in 2011 after graduating with an MSc in optoelectronic devices and systems followed by 10 years as a system and network administrator and system engineer.


It’s one of our core principles at Bond TM to continually invest in the training of our team of IT engineers. This helps us to ensure that our clients are given the best and most up-to-date advice for superyacht refit and new build projects, as well as ongoing support on board.

Q. What’s your technical background and how did you first become interested in this area?

Picture this scenario: the yacht owner is on board for a month-long summer charter with his family. The children are mad tennis fans, so you know that they’ll be glued to the television watching Wimbledon. The owner himself will be working a fair bit, in constant email and Skype contact with his team around the world, as well as working out in the on board gym to the surround sounds of his favourite tunes.
