Do you love your yacht more than anything? Wouldn’t you want the best team to maintain and protect your prized asset?
Protect your asset
Nautical MS can work closely with the owner, captain, engineer, and crew to understand the details of all the technical issues onboard, assisting with the recording and accounting for any upgrade, defect or concern as applicable, as well as dealing directly with insurers in the event that any claims or repairs are needed.
Nautical MS will ensure that routine maintenance is conducted at all times, assist with creating shipyard proposals, specification reviews and can oversee any refit periods upon request.
We will conduct bi-annual technical inspections of the entire yacht and its systems, in conjunction with the crew. The planned maintenance systems will be reviewed monthly, and any issues or concerns identified and worked on productively.
There is also the facility within our bespoke management software to integrate the vessels planned maintenance routines into a ‘Maintenance Manager‘ application, a completely customisable maintenance interface which removes the need for expensive 3rd party systems (such as IDEA and Techman etc), and ensures all records are in one secure, integrated, and manageable location.
Any owner or guest request for an onboard adjustment or upgrade can be reviewed and worked on in the background whilst the crew are busy during the season, saving valuable time and allowing requests to be better appraised and more cost effective. The results and analysis will be worked on collectively prior to submitting proposals to the owner.
Maintenance comes in many forms, with key differentiations being ‘preventative’, ‘routine’ and ‘breakdown’. It is vital that preventative maintenance is conducted in order to manage costs and minimise the ‘down time’ of the yacht.
Flag registries and classification societies will need to carry out surveys at specific points during the life of the superyacht in order to certify its seaworthiness in conjunction with regulatory and insurance compliance, and we shall work alongside the yacht in all manners to ensure full compliance.
