We ensure safety, to prevent human injury or loss of life, and to avoid damages to the
environment, in particular, the marine environment, and to the Yachts. Many of the items listed are “operational” and our role is to put in place systems and support to assist the Captain in carrying out many of his functions. We also monitor the Captain and crew in their daily operations of the Yacht. The system in place is monitored through: a system of monthly returns from the Yacht designed to highlight deficiencies and ensure that best practices are applied, two on board audits per year carried out by our” Designated Person Ashore” (DPA) and a general security assessment of basic good practice.
