Yacht Support Services

Luxury Yacht Group support services operate as a land based support network to assist the Captain and Owner in the smooth operation of the yacht. The only true manager of the yacht can be the Captain, who has onboard control and monitoring of the vessel activities. Our support services ensure the administration, maintenance and operation of the yacht are run at consistently high levels. Having the crew placement service seamlessly integrate into your shore support contract is the key to our success, as without a qualified and great crew the yacht will not run efficiently.
