Professional Services for Sailors, from Sailors !
Love for the sea creates a desire to own a boat, to many people. However, very few people proceed to make this wish come true. Even when the financial prerequisites are in tact, the procedures, the service and the care required on an annual basis are enough to hault the plans of the majority of people. Things become more complex, if the boat is also required to be chartered (with or without crew).
This is the basis on which some Fleet Management companies have been active and busy for many decades. They practically take ownership of all these worries and deliver some income and a few weeks of “carefree” holidays to the owner. Why then, a great number of (managed) boat owners do sell their “dream” after a few years ? And why a great number of them complain about the services they have received ?
We believe that only true sailors or people who have been active in sea activities (and not simply being a member of the marine industry in general) can feel empathy for a boat owner, who bought his boat out of his love for the sea.
A boat is not a mere professional tool, even when it is actually a true commercial asset and is being chartered on a regular basis. Neither, a means of transportation, like a car. Every boat has its own name, its own character, its own unique faults and advantages, its own identity.
That is why some charterers ask by name the same boat that they had chartered in the past !
We are sailors, we are boat owners ourselves, we are interested to grow our ownership of boats and having secured some excellent conditions for our own boats, we can undertake to do the same job that we do for our boats, for the boats of other owners, for mutual benefits. Benefits related to a larger turnover, benefits related to economies of scale and benefits due to boat loving care !
