Simpson Marine is proud to be a full service provider and a few years ago our new Yacht Care service was created to meet the needs of the absentee owners who keep their yachts in Asia but don’t live here. Originally founded in Thailand, which remains the service centre for our Yacht Care programme, the popularity of this service has meant we now have Yacht Care set ups in Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, China and Hong Kong too.
Currently this service is mostly used in Thailand, which has become the epicentre of Asian cruising and chartering and where owners are happy to keep their yachts safely and well looked after. Our Thailand Yacht Care team has a fleet of 15 yachts under regular care and maintenance.
The Simpson Marine Yacht Care programme is a comprehensive service plan that can range from full management and concierge services, including airport pickups, champagne reception and regional visiting arrangements to owners, to more practical aspects such as regular technical checks, ongoing maintenance, repairs and spare parts supply, cleaning, preparing for charter/owner’s usage, refuelling, provisioning, crew providing, and more. Our Yacht Care offering is also a great complementary service to Yacht Charter Management programmes, where we manage yachts for charter operations within the Simpson Yacht Charter division.
