Yacht Compliance & Safety

The safety and security of owners, guests and crew is always our priority.

By providing a structured system to yachts, we ensure compliance amid the complex world of rules and regulations by which they must operate.

We work with the vessels to maintain existing requirements and streamline the implementation of any new regulations which come into force.

Our safety management system (SMS) has been developed over many years and is approved by a number of Flag authorities, meeting the requirements of the International Safety Management (ISM) Code. This system can be tailored to suit the specific needs and operational requirements of any individual yacht in the most user-friendly way.

For yachts under 500gt, which are not required to meet the full requirements of the ISM and ISPS codes, we can provide a tailored version, giving peace of mind for the owner and crew.

Ship Security Plan (SSP)

We create and help implement a yacht-specific Ship Security Plan (SSP) to enhance security of the vessel and meet international requirements, allowing the vessel to operate safely worldwide.

Vessel Audits

We implement an auditing framework for the vessel where we can, check, report and follow up on all aspect of safety and security compliance.

DPA & Crisis Support

We provide a fully-qualified designated person ashore (DPA) and company Security Officer (CSO) to support vessels, offering 24/7 cover should it be needed. We can also assist in all matters relating to Emergency Support and Crisis Management.

Professional & Global Expertise

Worldwide operations

We can support vessels anywhere in the world. Our team have been involved in a wide variety of locations – including the usual cruising grounds of the Mediterranean, Indian Ocean, Caribbean and USA.

Vessels we manage can also regularly be found in the Far East, Australia, the North and South Pacific, Canada, Alaska, India, the Indian Ocean, Alaska, North and South America and across Europe.

Compliance & regulation

We can provide all of the ISM, MLC and ISPC compliance a vessel needs, as a standalone service or as part of our full management package.

To ensure you’re compliant at all times, you’ll be provided with a Flag State approved Safety Management System (SMS).

For further reassurance, you’ll be assigned with a Dedicated Person Ashore (DPA) to act as a main port of call in an emergency.

We have an exceptional safety record and hold Documents of Compliance for major Flag States. If new safety or security legislation is issued, we’ll make sure your vessel always meets the ever-changing regulations.

Vessels of every size

Serving Captains and Owners, our current fleet currently contains 7,000 GRT passenger ships as well as a host of privately-registered superyachts.

We can also manage commercial vessels, passenger ships, survey ships, special purpose and cargo ships.

24/7 emergency support

As part of our ISM, MLC and ISPS service, we are always on hand to coordinate the response to any emergency situation.

As part of our management service, we will provide 24/7 crisis support that could prove the difference between life and death in a serious emergency.

To safeguard the welfare of anyone working on a vessel, we also play an instrumental role in delivering the safety management systems adopted on board.

Independent management experts

We are proud to provide Owners and Captains with an outstanding, independent service focussed entirely on their management requirements.

Because we are not brokers, we’ll never try to engineer the sale of a vessel and protect your asset is our main priority.

If you’d like to establish a long-term working relationship, built on trust and confidence, our management specialists will deliver five-star service backed by decades of experience.

Highly-competitive fees

Our team will ensure your vessel is run and maintained to the highest standards at all times, allowing you to pick and choose the services you need for a competitive monthly fee.
