FAQ

Why should I have Passion Yachting manage my yacht?

There are many reasons, firstly to take the “dirty” side of owning a yacht out of your hands, the wash downs, strainer services, bilge cleaning,  to have a turn key operation your vessel needs constant attention to detail. Along with the planned maintenance schedule. Your insurance company will require someone close to your vessel if you’re an absentee owner.

Deliveries what to expect?

Firstly we will inspect the safety equipment onboard and the spare needed for an agreed trip, documentation and insurance. With a passage plan in place and the correct weather window we will move your vessel. Things do come up, break downs and weather which we will communicate and manage, while being in constant contact with the vessel owner.

What do we do?

We take the hassle out of yacht ownership, add value by keeping up on the maintenance.
