Rest assured that your yacht is in safe hands Operational yacht management

Operational management leaves no space for error. At Ocean Independence, we think service and consistency are as important as being adaptable and cost effective. We assign a dedicated yacht manager to every yacht, who is permanently available to act as your personal point of reference and deliver regular reports on all aspects of the yacht’s operation, including onboard inspections.

Our full operational management package assures that your yacht is always operated safely and smoothly. Crewing and technical management (including maintenance planning and support) are part of the package, as well as payments and accounting, cost control and inspections, reporting and our global 24/7 emergency support. We also have an in-house legal advisor, allowing us to respond quickly, independently and cost-efficiently to any legal questions and issues from reviewing contract clauses to settling insurance claims.

We maintain a strict non-commission policy for services rendered to our clients under the management agreement. The many discounts we are able to obtain from suppliers are always credited to the owners and there is no mark-up whatsoever on our services. After all, integrity is our hallmark.
