Over recent years, an increasing number of yacht management companies have joined the increasingly saturated management market, and with increasing regulations the debate surrounding whether or not to be supported by a management company is happening less and less. Regulations, quite simply, need management, whether that’s in the form of a full-service management company supporting the captain and owner in everything from crew payroll to MLC compliance, or whether it’s a simple case of Voluntary ISM.   

With the management sector and regulatory sphere growing side by side, therefore, understanding the value (monetary and operational) of a good management company is pertinent to the forward movement of the superyacht industry. And, it’s important the industry as a whole understands what constitutes a good management company from those who are, realistically, dealing with managers on a daily basis – the captains.

Tell us what works about management and what doesn’t, and which management companies have supported you and which haven’t.
