arhad Vladi was studying economics and René Boehm law in Hamburg, Germany, when they decided to become partners,with a view to the establishment of what, at the beginning of the 1970s, was a novel enterprise: the sale of private islands. And that’s how Boehm & Vladi was born. The successful partnership during which they established the world’s first and only firm dedicated to the sale of private islands lasted until 1985, when the two men decided to go their separate ways, despite remaining friends. Mr. Vladi set up offices in Halifax, Nova Scotia, while maintaining the firm’s headquarters in Hamburg, his native city. Vladi Private Islands also has offices in Wellington (New Zealand). In the last four decades, Vladi Private Islands has sold more than 2,000 islands and island castles and has rented out thousands of others. At the heart of the company are files kept at the Hamburg office, which contain information on more than 12,000 properties. Each file contains detailed data on a particular island: topographical maps, marine charts, aerial photographs of the property, its natural features and manmade installations, extracts from property files recorded at local deed offices, appraisal notes, correspondence carried on with the owner, and reports on

arhad Vladi y René Boehm estudiaban en la ciudad alemana de Hamburgo economía y leyes, respectivamente, cuando decidieron asociarse en lo que constituyó, a comienzos de la década de 1970, un novedoso emprendimiento: la venta de islas privadas. Así nació Boehm & Vladi. La exitosa colaboración, que consolidó el primer y único negocio de venta de islas privadas del mundo, se prolongó hasta 1985, momento en que ambos decidieron seguir caminos diferentes en lo profesional, aunque mantuvieron su amistad. El Sr. Vladi instaló oficinas en Halifax, Nova Scotia, aunque sus cuarteles generales continuaron y continúan en Hamburgo, su ciudad natal. Vladi Private Islands cuenta, además, con oficinas en Wellington (Nueva Zelanda). En las últimas cuatro décadas, Vladi Private Islands ha vendido más de 2.000 islas e islas-castillo y también ha rentado miles. En Hamburgo, sus archivos contienen información sobre más de 12.000 propiedades, lo que representa el corazón de la compañía.
