The clients in our yacht management program travel the far reaches of the globe and we are adept at tackling the challenges of logistical support wherever the vessels may dock. With advanced planning, a megayacht can be ready for voyage turnaround in a matter of hours not days.
With offices located in multiple time zones, we access our network of vendors and purveyors to be on standby with the required supplies ready to run up the passerelles. Spare parts for engineering, fuel bunkering, specialty provisions and medical supplies are just a few of the items on the list that IYC managers are routinely arranging.
Often, yachts are used as floating hotels which owners may establish as a base station rather than continual cruising. Our management team is adept at negotiating for long term dockage when the yacht remains stationary for weeks or months at a time.
We don't overlook commercial facilities as an alternative to pricier resort marinas when the calendar indicates that guests will not be utilizing the yacht. Economy is always in the forefront of our minds when we can save in practical ways without compromising the integrity or security of the vessel.
A yacht's captain is responsible for safe passage and we want his route to always be smooth sailing under blue sky. When one of our management vessels is underway, we check short and long term weather forecasts as well as consult with the yacht's insurance agent to be certain that the location and timing all fall within existing policy parameters.
When it comes to offshore operations, we fuss like over-protective parents because every owner and crew is a member of the International Yacht Collection family.
We focus on the foundation: the budget. Our system is designed to keep all the planned and spontaneous activities in motion without exceeding prudent financial realities.
When your enchantment with your present yacht has waned, we have a formula for sales success strategies that are ready for deployment the moment a seller is ready.
The best yachts in the world must have the best crew in the world. Whether the yacht is strictly private or actively engaged in chartering, the level of training and discretion is a direct reflection of our management oversight.
ISM regulations brought positive changes to the safety of yachting, but certainly added to the physical and clerical work. Our yacht management team is well versed in the minutia of the code, and will implement a compliant program on all the vessels under our management program.
Our mission statement compels us to take care of all the business of the yacht so that the owners in our management program have the peace of mind that comes with making such a large investment.
Does it sound like we are obsessed with safety? We are. Even the most carefully planned itinerary, however, can be subject to unforeseen circumstances. Mother Nature and Father Time are not always the most amenable travel companions.
