We can take care of accounts and budgets, recruitment and management of crews and ensure the best safety and security standards are set and adhered to, whilst taking care of all logistical and administrative duties which come with sailing in different parts of the world.
Because we are not brokers and are completely independent, our focus is always entirely on the yacht management requirements, something which is essential in current times and with frequent changes in regulations.
We are proud of our established long-term relationships, having been trusted for 25 years of excellent management of some of the world’s finest superyachts.
Our team includes former Captains, Master Mariners and an excellent mix of commercial and yachting professionals.
We’ve managed yachts ranging from over 100 metres in length to 30 metres (330feet to 90 feet). Our services cover commercial superyachts and privately registered Yachts operating under the Large Yacht and Passenger Yacht Codes.
Yes. All the yachts we manage are tracked and have alarms on board which are regularly tested in our control room. When cruising in remote locations or transiting high risk areas such as the Indian Ocean or the Red Sea, security is obviously a high priority. Many of the yachts we manage have made safe transits around the Horn of Africa and all have a small armed security team on board. We also register the passage with the Marine Security Centre Horn of Africa to ensure naval support should it be required.
The core cruising areas is still the Mediterranean in the summer and Caribbean in the winter, but an increasing number of yachts we manage are now venturing further afield. We have well-established contacts with most Flag States which hold the jurisdiction over oceangoing vessels and hold a Yacht and Passenger Ship Document of Compliance (DOC). We were the first yacht management company to obtain a passenger ship DOC with the Cayman Islands.
Should a yacht have an emergency such as fire, flood, a collision or a medical situation we provide a 24/7 support service. Crews are given contact numbers for a Dedicated Person Ashore (DPA) who will consult with the Captain and decide whether to man the office with a crisis support team. We will also ensure the Flag State is informed, as well as crew members’ next of kin.
Wilson Yacht Management can support vessels anywhere in the world and our team have been involved in a wide variety of yacht cruising schedules and itineraries worldwide, as well as the usual cruising grounds of the Mediterranean, Caribbean and USA.
Yachts we manage can regularly be found in the Far East, Australia, the North and South Pacific, Alaska, India, Middle East, the Indian Ocean, Alaska, North and South America and across Europe.
Our complete independence and integrity. We are not beholden to anyone other than our clients and that is quite rare in the industry. It means we always act in the best interests of the Owner and focus entirely on providing them with an outstanding service. We ensure yachts and superyachts are maintained and operated to the highest standards whilst complying with necessary legal and regulatory requirements. As a business we look to develop long-standing partnerships and many of the yachts we manage have been with us 10 or more years.
Allan and his team have a wealth of experience in the yacht management field and have always been efficient, diligent and honest in our dealings. I greatly value their support and service, and recommend them to any new yacht owner to help make the transition smooth and enjoyable.

I wish to say a personal thank you for the support you have given me and Vortex Marine over the last two years. Peter, my late husband was pleased he picked the right company, yours, to help with all matters.
Pauline Bull, Motor Yacht Titan
It has been about a year since you have taken over the management of our client's 60 meter Feadship. We have previously had two other management companies and even did the work ourselves for several months. I wanted to thank you for your excellent service and let you know how pleased we are in how seamlessly you have taken over and done just what we needed.
