The past few years has seen a significant rise in owners choosing to take advantage of Simpson Marine’s Yacht Management division. Since the pandemic began, people are now more focused than ever on making the most of special time with family and friends. Time is precious and for this reason more and more owners are looking to free up their own time by handing over the responsibility of the management of their yacht to Simpson Marine.
“Owning a yacht is an incredible experience, but to properly look after your yachting asset the day-to-day requirements of yacht ownership do require time, effort, experience and resources.” says May Choi, Simpson Yacht Management Operations Manager. “That’s where we come in to make the ownership experience easy and worry-free. We take responsibility for the management for the yacht, meaning owners can simply relax and enjoy their time on the water.”
The Yacht Management team is highly skilled, with a broad range of experience, meaning every boat in the programme is in the best of hands. “Our management team is composed of highly trained and qualified individuals who can aid and guide yacht owners and captains to guarantee that the boat is properly maintained, administered, and operated,” says Choi. “We look after boats all around Asia, delivering a comprehensive service to suit the needs of every owner.”
Currently counting five members including Operations Manager, Technical Manager, Fleet Captain and Yacht Management Administrators, the Simpson Marine Yacht Management team has implemented major upgrades in 2022 by introducing two new software systems that help to manage their growing fleet in a more efficient way. VOLY is an accounting system for Yacht Management that is globally recognised as one of most comprehensive and professional ones to manage yacht expenses and get them approved by the yacht owner in a clear and easy manner. MANAGE MY VESSELS (MMV) is a professional technical support software for the yachts that is a great tool for captains and our Yacht Management Technical Manager to oversee the technical condition of the yacht and quickly follow up any arising issues. Currently all of our Yacht Management yachts are using VOLY system and we expect to see all of them enrolled into MMV system in 2023.
The team works with owners to create a bespoke plan for looking after their vessel. “We tailor our services to meet the requirements of each individual yacht owner,” says Choi. “Our yacht management team handles everything from catering for parties to planning cruising itineraries, as well as the financial costs of boat maintenance and other living expenditures.”
The comprehensive service offering from the Yacht Management team includes:
