Y.CO Domain Name Sold to Y.CO Luxury Yacht Company


Today, Y.CO became the first luxury brand to acquire a single-letter .CO domain,, following in the footsteps of companies like Google (, Twitter (, and Amazon (

Y.CO is a yachting company, with services to help you sell, purchase, charter, manage, and build yachts. Around 1,100 yachts are available to charter around the world, ranging in price from $45,000 to $2 million for a week. On board, guests may be greeted by an executive chef, personal trainers, dive instructors, or beauty therapists. They can enjoy beautiful art collections and interior design, new technologies, and “high-tech water toys.”

While guests are chartering a yacht, they might try some scuba diving, wakeboarding, waterskiing, or fishing. Y.CO also has partnerships for on-land experiences, ranging from a tour of the pyramids to a Borneo orangutan sanctuary visit to a treasure hunt in the Mediterranean.

Y.CO also launched an iPad app today where interested users can browse yachts for sale and charter, save a list of favorites, and contact the Y.CO team for help. screenshot

Y.CO was founded in 2003 by Gary Wright and Charlie Birkett, who met six years earlier onboard a yacht where Wright was captain. They both have decades of experiences in yachting and boating.

The news comes just as the 2013 Monaco Yacht Show is kicking off today.

Tech Cocktail is proud to call .CO a partner and sport the domain.

    When I originally commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get four emails with the same comment.
    Is there any way you can remove people from that service?
