Technical Management

To protect the value of your asset, as well as ensure the safety of any guests onboard, regular maintenance periods are essential.

Maintenance comes in many forms, with key differentiations being ‘preventative’, ‘routine’ and ‘breakdown’. It is vital that preventative maintenance is conducted in order to manage costs and minimise the ‘down time’ of the yacht.

Flag states and classification societies will need to carry out surveys during the life of the superyacht in order to certify its seaworthiness in conjunction with regulatory and insurance compliance. AMC Marine can assist owners and captains in making sure rules and regulations are met.
