Ready To Sail
The moment you step on board, you immediately want to enjoy the pleasures of your yacht. Let us know that you are coming and we will prepare your ship for you: whether you like to go sailing or to just stay in the harbor. We’ll ventilate and clean the cabin, fill up the tank and if you request so, fill up the refrigerator with your favorite products. You can have a cooled bottle of champagne waiting for you when you arrive.
Whether you are a frequent sailor or not, your yacht is constantly exposed to the elements. Salty water and UV-light highly affects the hull and equipment. That is why we recommend to submit your yacht to a thorough check-up once a year apart from the monthly maintenance services we offer. Apart from the fact that this helps maintaining the value and beauty of your yacht, the annual revision is crucial for your safety and comfort.
The Hull As the hull of your yacht is always in the water, it is highly recommendable to take her to the dry-dock once a year. You will not have to bother about selecting a nearby dry-dock, having your yacht brought there and finding trustworthy craftsmen to perform checks and reparations. You only have to let us know, and we will have our team:
– Check the hull for damages and applying anti-fouling
– Clean the shaft, propellers and bow thruster
– Check and replacement of anodes
– Clean, wax and polish the hull above the waterline
