Our mission is to act as “Owner Representative”.
We can supervise any construction, refit or repair full time or part time basis as concluded with owner.
Each step of the work process is followed by a report about the situation according to working plan and budget.
Our Project Managers have boatbuilding and business backgroung. The years spent in the marine industry will have hardwired them to understand issues on board that those outside of the industry may well over look.
The Project Manager will be working closely with the owner for a considerable length of time, therefore trust is necessary. The Project Manager will be speaking on behalf of the owner, so it is imperative that they can be trusted to advocate the owner’s wishes accurately.
The Project Manager will be part of a large team that includes the owner’s representatives, yacht captain, broker, legal expert, supervising surveyor and even a chief engineer or engineering team. He must ensure professionalism along with strong leadership capabilities.

HAUL OUT MANAGEMENT
All yachts require an annual Haul Out for antifouling, anodes and a general polish but as this will most likely take place during the winter so as not to interfere with your cruising time you will probably not be interested in taking time out to manage this yourself. We can offer a Haul Out Management service either as a stand alone product or to run alongside the WINTERvention package. We will organise everything for you, reservations for your yacht to be hauled out in the yard of your choice or at a place we recommend if you don’t know anywhere. We will then go to your boat and deliver her to the yard at the time of the booked Lift Out, we’ll be on hand to check she’s lifted safely, chocked and washed and then subject to your needs we will arrange all the necessary works and maintenance while she is out of the water including anodes, antifouling and polishing, filling and fairing, bow thruster works, prop shaft and stern gland seals and bearings checked. We’ll be on hand to oversee all of this work and will photograph and report on everything that is done so you can rest assured that you have received what you wanted and paid for. We’ll also be able to advise on any problems that are found while she’s out and liase with you about extra works that need to be done. After everything is finished we will oversee the drop in, check the bilges and vent the stern gland before delivering the boat back to your berth.
Prices for Haul Out management vary depending on size of boat, the location of your berth and the boatyard plus the list of jobs you have while she is out of the water and whether you want us or the boatyard to do the works.
