Made up of experienced engineers, captains and surveyors, West Nautical’s technical services team has an impressive history. Our careful management of your superyacht’s planned maintenance schedule and operations means we can take care of preparing work lists, requests for quotation and scheduling – allowing the captain to focus on their operational duties.
To protect the value of your asset, as well as ensure the safety of any guests onboard, regular maintenance periods are essential.
West Nautical can work closely with the owner, captain, engineer and crew to understand all the technical issues on board, assisting with the recording and accounting for any upgrade, defect or concern as applicable, as well as dealing directly with insurers in the event that any claims or repairs are needed. We will also assist with creating shipyard proposals, specification reviews and can oversee any refit periods upon request.Refit Management
A yacht refit is a complex business. Without effective management, careful planning and ongoing evaluation it’s something that can quickly go over budget and schedule.
We act as an effective management partner; ensuring the refit is efficient and economical. Our technical team have had long careers across the marine sector and have excellent contacts across every marine trade, with a practical appreciation of the refit process.
The West Nautical approach to refit starts with understanding exactly what you want, making a detailed plan before beginning an appraisal of suitable yards for the refit, providing detailed quotations, logistical assistance and attending the refit on your behalf.
We embrace even the most ambitious re-fit projects and enjoy seeing an owners vision come to fruition.
