Technical Support

Our team have years of experience in assisting Captains and their crew to keep their vessel in an excellent condition – meeting standards required by insurers, laws and regulations.

Ensure your yacht stays shipshape at all times when in use

Maintaining your yacht when in use is essential and our team can advise and support with technical and condition surveys, maintenance procedures and other technical work on board, as well as assisting the captain to devise maintenance programs and when reviewing reports.

Help reduce running costs

Knowing how all aspects of your yacht are performing helps avoid unforeseen – and significant – repair bills. Our team has the experience of ensuring systems are in place to monitor all machinery, stocks and spares, ensuring damages and defects are immediately reported whilst a constantly updated inventory ensures timely delivery of required parts at realistic prices.

Arrange and oversee maintenance and refit work

Shipyard work is often essential and obtaining and appraising quotes is part and parcel of the work we do, ensuring it is schedule for suitable time of the year. We can also visit your yacht at the shipyard at the beginning, during and completion of works during a maintenance project or refit period to monitor the works and costs, or oversee it day to day if so desired.

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.
