There is no doubt that Superyachts are the platform for some of the most amazing and memorable experiences with family and friends and, as the ultimate discretionary expense, we have an enormous responsibility to ensure a positive experience so that owners continue to invest in the Superyacht Lifestyle and recommend yachting to friends.
Whether an existing yacht owner or owners team, considering a new-build project or purchase of an existing yacht, looking at ways to improve the yachts operation and management, or have a vision for yachting that is not being delivered on – Three Sixty Marine can help.
I take a ‘three hundred and sixty degree‘ approach that is based on knowledge and practical experience in command on some of the Worlds’ largest yachts. That privileged vantage point has exposed me to all aspects of yachting including; new build, purchase, refit, operation, management and leadership, and has helped develop a deep appreciation of their role in the yacht ownership experience.
Using knowledge, insight and experience to support, inform and guide
Working alongside captains, owners and their teams, Three Sixty Marine can support the operation and also help define their yachting vision and aspirations. That information can be used to assist in the purchase of an existing yacht or new construction and, for operational yachts, refit projects and help guide and motivate crew towards the owners priorities and onboard experience.
Management of yachts, like any high value asset, is essential to protect the value and ensure the yacht delivers on an owners priorities. Today, there are some are some extremely capable and professional management companies but, like yacht budgets, there is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ management model. Three Sixty Marine can help assess the most suitable yacht management structure – full management, in-house or hybrid – that is based on an owners desired level of engagement and resources.
