SAFETY & COMPLIANCE
We provide a structured system to yachts, to ensure compliance amid the complex world of rules and regulations by which they must operate.
By working with the vessels to maintain existing requirements, we streamline the implementation of any new regulations which come into force.

This system can be tailored to suit the specific needs and operational requirements of any individual yacht in the most user-friendly way.
For yachts under 500gt, which are not required to meet the full requirements of the ISM and ISPS codes, we can provide a tailored version, giving peace of mind for the owner and crew
We create a valuable planned maintenance programs tailored to each individual clients needs. A planned maintenance programs typically consist of the following:
Regular Bottom Cleaning
We work only with reputable, insured, and licensed divers.
The yacht’s topsides will be washed on a biweekly basis
Main engine, generator, gyro, and other mechanical equipment (bi-weekly & monthly)
Our proposals do include biweekly starting of main engines, generators, and gyro stabilizer. Every other week We start the mentioned systems and let them warm up to operating temperature to ensure oil movement throughout engine interior and prevent corrosion.
Once a month the vessel would be taken out for a sea trial and refueled as necessary.
After careful consideration depending upon the condition of the vessel the yacht’s interior should be detailed at least once a month to maintain it in pristine condition. This service is included in my management package and will be performed by a professional yacht stewardess.
To ensure the yacht is always in tiptop shape we will perform weekly visits that include a walkthrough the vessel and systems check
Electrical Systems ( AC & DC Power)
The on board electrical systems and operating systems of the vessel will be powered and tested on a monthly basis to ensure optimal operation. This service is normally performed the same day that the sea trial is scheduled but might be subject to change.
