We have very recently worked with Jaymo on a 100metre plus superyacht during a six-month refit period in Germany. Jaymo had been working with the owner previously and were able to quickly specify what the owner required onboard the yacht to bring it up to the expected performance levels for AV/IT systems. This was essential as we needed a quick route to specification then installation during the allotted refit time period together with expected lead times of equipment.
They were on site with us soon after the refit and began working perfectly with the onboard AV/IT officers and yard personnel. The service was always on time and knowledge was excellent in terms of adjusting existing systems to integrate new owner requirements and reduce costs of ongoing service contracts that already existed with other providers.
It was a pleasure working with Jaymo and we look forward to our next project which we have started with them in the planning stages now.
Jaymo were appointed to carry out an AVIT/Security upgrade during our recent six-month refit period in Germany. Jaymo had previously worked with the Owner’s team and were able to quickly specify what was required onboard the yacht to bring it up to the expected performance levels for AV/IT systems. Jaymo were also able to develop, design and install a significant security upgrade to improve coverage of CCTV as well as enhancing our intruder prevention systems.
Jaymo provided a first-class service throughout the upgrade, from short notice response to design specifications and fast turnaround and deployment of resources in order to meet the very tight deadlines available whilst the boat was in the yard. Jaymo were also able to respond effectively when the owner requested early departure of the boat to mee t operational needs, engaging positively in trouble shooting issues prior to departure as well as re scheduling works for completion upon arrival in the Mediterranean.
My team and I were very impressed with Jaymo’s project delivery throughout the project and, as such, have appointed Jaymo to carry out the next phase of our security upgrade at the earliest opportunity. I would not hesitate to recommend Jaymo to other Owner’s/Owner’s teams/Yachts.
We have had a continued strong professional engagement with JAYMO for well over one year to date and during this time I have personally found them to be honest, reliable and highly professional in the delivery of the services offered
Thes services have included but are not limited to; hardware procurement AVIT planning and work specifications and operational procurement consultation. In all of these areas JAYMO have excelled, engaging in positive dialogue to ensure the client's instruct ions and needs are met.
The level of service throughout has been of the expected high standard while offering professional, transparent and thorough proposals and quotations, which time again have proven to be extremely competitive on price as well as, importantly, quality. I continue to welcome the ability of JAYMO to bring an independent experienced service to the operation and view the service they provide as great value, not only from a monetary perspective but to the overall high level of product delivered to the client.
I would not hesitate to recommend the services of JAYMO.

Jason is a highly accomplished professional with a diverse background in finance, aviation, marine, private family office management and entrepreneurship. Having grown up in Zimbabwe he began his career by qualifying as a chartered accountant at Ernst & Young, gaining a strong foundation in finance.
Jason's career took off when he joined a large 747 cargo airline, becoming the Finance Director at the age of 30. With a turnover of $400 million, small margins and operations spanning the globe, it was an often challenging yet rewarding exposure to international business.
Due to the strong relationships formed while at the Airline, Jason was invited to join the single family office (SFO) of one of the Forbes top 50 richest families in the world. In this capacity, he oversaw the management of aircraft, yachts, and properties across multiple jurisdictions, ensuring efficient operations and compliance.
In 2012 he was approached by likeminded businessmen with an enticing opportunity to invest and join Magma Aviation, a startup 747 cargo airline. They soon found themselves up against major government-backed airlines competing for new routes and markets. Through contacts, reputation and innovative thinking they fought for every dollar, strategised to gain market share, and ensured the airline's success in a highly competitive industry. The company's exceptional performance and reputation attracted attention, leading to its eventual sale in 2017.
While still at Magma Jason was headhunted back into the SFO as the CFO/COO. He became accomplished in navigating the complexities of different legal and regulatory frameworks. He built up a rapport with many leading advisors across the world to ensure compliance and mitigate risks associated with international transactions. With his approachable nature, problem-solving mindset and genuine persona, he became the go-to person, both externally and from within, for any challenges or issues surrounding the SFO.
Working within the SFO provided a unique platform to understand what services UHNWI’s need and depend on, driven by his entrepreneurial spirit and the desire to provide an exemplary service Jason founded Jaymo. The core ethos is ‘Built on Trust’, we gain it, we build on it and then we have to keep it, this raises the bar above our competitors and ensures that we are always looking after our clients’ needs in the best possible way.
