WHERE DO WE BASED ?
Our main office is based in Switzerland, but we also work in conjunction with our partners:
ACURY, in the UAE Dubai
NED SHIP in Europe
SEA STELLA in China
CIMC RAFFLES Pride Mega Yacht in China
We manage maritime projects (new builds of yachts, patrol vessels, ferries and other specialised commercial vessels) to ensure professional workmanship is carried out by skilled teams under the leadership of qualified and experienced supervisors and managers from all over the world.
Due to lower labour costs in these parts of the world, the work can be completed at prices that are considerably lower than those offered in Northern Europe, making the UAE and China very attractive locations for these kinds of projects.
WHY COME TO THE UAE DURING THE WINTER SEASON?
Formula 1 race
Yacht owners with vessels in Europe may wonder why they would want to bring their yachts to the UAE for work; after all what is there to do here? The UAE is now famous for its major, international and glamorous sporting events. In November each year there is the Formula 1 race week, which attracts thousands of spectators from all over the world. Yachts arrive from all parts of the globe and congregate in the fashionable “YAS Marina” to watch the races. This is also a very popular time for yacht charters, with suitable yachts commanding very high charter fees.
Dubai World Cup,
In spring each year there is the culmination of the horse-racing season, the Dubai World Cup, with the highest purse in the racing world and a day to equal Ascot.
Major tennis and golf tournaments
There are major tennis and golf tournaments, which attract all the top international players in these fields as well as many other international sporting events of every kind.
As well as being well worth attending, these occasions also provide the opportunity for charters for those owners who regularly offer their yachts for charter.
Luxury exhibits at the annual Dubai Boat Show
In between events, owners can take advantage of their yachts being in the area and have refits or services carried out locally by professionals at attractive overall prices. For owners looking to sell, then once refitted in the UAE, the Dubai Boat Show in spring is an excellent showcase for all kinds of luxury yachts with potential buyers coming from all over the world to make purchases.
After the yachting season
After all works are carried out to complete satisfaction, then ….. well ….the world is open!!!! Yachts can set off for cruising or charters in the Red Sea, Indian Ocean, or further east to the many islands around Thailand, the Philippines, Indonesia and Malaysia.
WHAT DO WE DO FOR YOU?
We can offer a fully comprehensive range of services, removing the need to deal with multiple parties and so provide a single point of contact for a new luxury yacht, for patrol vessels or passenger ferries.
We know who the most professional and organised yards and contractors are and who to approach for the specific work for each project. Our team understands that not everyone has the same requirements and that each yacht has to be looked at as "individual". This way we always find the "right man for the right job".
Once we have the necessary requirements and specifics for a project, we can put a package together that satisfies all the requirements and find the correct partner to carry out the project for you.
