Our team will assist your Captain to arrange berths and for bunkering and ships agents when required.

Ensure effective communications at all times.

For many Owners keeping in contact with their businesses is key, and this is something we can ensure is all in hand by organising yacht communication packages including V-Sat, Sat-C, Mobile and 4G services. We’ll also assist in setting up satellite TV services worldwide.

Manage maintenance and repairs to ensure minimum disruption

Many yachts are in use both summer and winter so with refit and maintenance times in short supply we’ll make sure all is in hand by sourcing quotes and arranging for the purchase and supply of spare parts and by liaising with service personnel.

Frequently Asked Questions

What sizes of yachts do you manage for owners?

Wilson Yacht Management company is proud to manage a wide range of yachts, superyachts, passenger coded yachts, mega coded yachts and commercial vessels.

Our current fleet is comprised of several commercial superyachts of over 100 metres in length (330feet), 7000 GRT passenger ships and privately-registered yachts operating under the Large Yacht and Passenger Yacht Codes. We can also manage smaller vessels, from 30 metres in length (90 feet).

Do you help yachts and Captains sailing in potentially dangerous areas of the world?

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.

Where are the majority of the yachts you manage?

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.

What happens should a yacht need emergency support?

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.

In which locations are you able to provide Yacht Management support?

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.

What makes you stand-out as a Management company?

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.
