Yacht Management by Professionals
“An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” ~ Benjamin Franklin.
His words are very relatable to the idea of yacht management. So many times we have seen beautiful yachts turn into disasters due to mismanagement or lack of any management.
Something as simple as a faulty, blocked bilge pump or improper installation can sink a yacht very quickly and these things happen, far more than they should. There are so many things to check for on a yacht and it’s important to have someone with the proper experience to identify these issues.
We always want to empower owners, and what we check for is no secret sauce. We want you to know everything we look at every time we step aboard a new vessel to help guide you through what it is we monitor and why these speculations are of such importance.
Batteries, for example, are a common problem for all boaters. In fact, according to TowBoatUS, one in every ten calls they receive is for a “dead battery”. Making sure a battery is charging properly is very important to yacht maintenance and regular weekly check-ups can remedy most of these issues. Unlike a battery in a car, a battery on a yacht isn’t being used as frequently, sometimes sitting for weeks or even months without being used.
