Refit Management

Professional Motoryacht Captain. Experienced, professional and available worldwide.

All refits and new build projects have budget and time constrains and employing the services of an experienced refit captain or manager can save the owner time and money.

My comprehensive understanding of ships systems and the management of contractors, crew and the yard helps ensure your project is completed on time and on budget. I keep insurance companies, owners, managers and surveyors up to date with regular reports and inspections, both good and bad. 

Haul Out

Planning and preparation are paramount when hauling large vessels. Miscalculations at this stage can become very expensive.
