Safety and security

The safety and security of the Owner, family, guests, crew and the yacht are paramount. This is our number one priority in everything that we do. We go above and beyond to ensure safety and security, and we have elaborate systems to measure and protect them.

We emphasize prevention, but we also have emergency measures in place. If anything does occur, we are prepared to take immediate action.

Financial management

Finances might happen behind the scenes, but getting them right is integral to the everyday success of the yacht. Knowledgeable and responsible shore-based accounting allows the Captain and crew to do what they do best, which is running a fine yacht- not to mention exceeding the Owner’s expectations.

Weekly, Monthly and Annual Reporting

Regular reporting is integral to any proper financial management. We make a point of recording our finances on a weekly, monthly, and annual basis to ensure we’re being responsible. These are provided directly to the Owner and Captain.

Purchase order, Invoice Verification and Payment

Purchase orders are processed, invoices are verified, and payments are issued. We offer flexible services to suit your needs based on the invoice’s origin, amount, and speed required.

Bank Accounts

Bank accounts are set-up for the yacht in an offshore location. Let us know whatever currency you prefer, and we’re happy to set it up.

Foreign Exchange Management

Banks often charge for currency transfers- not to mention that they also take a “margin” between the buy and sell rates. We can register you with a broker to consult with so that you get the best deal.

Worldwide Petty Cash Transfers

As required, the Captain can arrange cash transfers in your desired currency from the bank of your choice.

Crew Payroll

We manage the crew’s payroll in compliance with all applicable laws and make all salary payments, so you never have to worry about it.

Insurance

We are happy to advise you on what insurance plan is right for you. We are familiar with all the areas of risk and can help you ensure that you have a comprehensive coverage.

Planned maintenance

Planned maintenance is key to maintaining the vessel’s reliability and ultimate value. We use our specialist knowledge and experience to keep our yachts in pristine condition.

We use a maintenance system to reduce our risk of operational performance failure. We also prioritize the training of all of our crew members so that quality is at the forefront of all decision making.

The Owner can monitor the maintenance reports and view upcoming maintenance and maintenance reviews if they choose to.

Yacht Brokerage

We’ve been experts in yacht brokerage for decades, so you can feel confident in our representation during the sale or purchase of your yacht. We have the capacity to provide technical assistance, delivery, and operational support, including an assessment of unique selling points, a personalized marketing plan, identification of potential clients, and continuous reporting to keep you up to speed. We’ll be at your side every step of the way, advocating for the best possible deal and following through until it’s a reality.
