The International Safety Management Codes, the Maritime Labour Convention and other regulatory organisations set out procedures to minimise the risks associated with operating a superyacht.
At SYM, we are MLC 2006 accredited and are hugely experienced and adept at translating those rules and regulations for your particular vessel. We will implement, maintain and advise on all safety and security procedures, ensuring owners, captains and crew are familiar with their responsibilities.
SYM’s services mean that we can fully enjoy our yachting experience without having to think about, worry, or take care of anything else. They have time and time again demonstrated flexibility to tailor their services to exactly what we need.
SYM were first employed as our yacht managers in 2012. Since then they have been an integral part of our yachting experience, for our 88ft to the 115ft we currently have. They take care of all Captain and Crew recruitment and have produced some truly exceptional personnel who have maximised our yachting experiences throughout the years. In addition, they have been on hand to deal with stressful issues such as quick crew turnaround in unforeseen circumstances.
Secondly, SYM produce accurate budget and actual financial accounts each month. They have worked with us through the years, learning our spending habits in order to produce a more and more specific budget each season, which is important to us so that we are able to very accurately forecast and be confident of our expenditures, ahead of each season.
Moreover, SYM have been absolutely exceptional in working with our Captain and Engineer to undertake repairs onboard. Without SYM, we would have had to deal with this issue in an industry that we have little experience and I am certain that we would not have achieved the same results.
Finally, SYM’s service goes above and beyond their standard services. We have just finished building a house in Antibes and they have helped us on countless occasions with matters both big and small, at no extra cost and this is the kind of customer service and flexibility that they demonstrate season after season for us.
Overall SYM’s services mean that we can fully enjoy our yachting experience without having to think about, worry, or take care of anything else. They have time and time again demonstrated flexibility to tailor their services to exactly what we need.
