Today’s yacht owners recognize the importance of protecting their assets and investments. Whether you’ve purchased a 40’ express cruiser or a 100’ luxury motor yacht, your first priority is to keep your yacht in pristine condition while being able to enjoy the yachting lifestyle you’ve become accustomed to. Unfortunately, many owners may become disenfranchised about owning a yacht once unexpected mechanical failures come to the surface and maintenance programs are required.
Water Fantaseas, with our extensive background in charter and yacht management, has put together a flexible Complete Yacht Management Plan to suit the varying needs of owners.
Our Complete Yacht Management Plan is really a combination of two items, yacht management and charter management. Beginning with yacht management, Water Fantaseas offers a wide array of services to ensure that your yacht is maintained properly, in pristine mechanical and cosmetic condition.
