I have never liked management companies. I have always seen them as just adding another level of cost and input that quite simply gets in the way of my role running the yacht. Truthfully, YPI may slowly be changing my opinion. The manager with our yacht knows what he is talking about, he understands my role and he works with me. YPI is a natural and welcome extension to my team and they are making a difference to how we run this yacht.
Having managed the previous vessel myself, with the owner, we understand very well what it means to have shore-side assistance. We are a very busy charter yacht and don’t always have the time to check all the safety/insurance and survey updates. YPI's dedicated manager for our yacht has always been a great help. When it comes to yard planning and budget assistance, it saves us so much time. For our owners, it’s good to have a very experienced yacht manager explaining some of the maintenance and yard costs.
When things go wrong, we know that in the event of any incident or accident, we are backed up by a team of professional captains with commercial and yachting backgrounds. We know this first hand, when I have encountered medical and mechanical incidents over the years.
I have been working with YPI for eight years and look forward to us working together for many years to come.
