How Did That Boat Get There?

Along with yacht ownership comes certain responsibilities and requisite services such as insurance, finance and moorings. These are obvious and will come as no surprise, and many will already have at least a minimum understanding of them. The one service that is often overlooked, mis-understood and often forgotten about, almost until the sale is made, is the yacht delivery.

Nick Irving, Director and Founder of Reliance Yacht Management spreads some light on the subject in his recently published article in the September/October 2016 issue of MULTIHULLS Magazine

Safety Procedures

In response to the CPS’s decision to bring charges against the manager of Cheeki Rafiki, it is understandable that the sailing industry takes a long look again at its policies and procedures and see that all that can be done is being done to minimise risk.

We take the view that sailing is not without risk but lessons can be learnt and anything that can reduce the risk is welcomed. Reliance Yacht Management wishes to reassure clients, captains and crews that we adopt a range of policies and procedures. Each year we undergo an external assessment of our business procedures to maintain our ISO9001 accreditation. In addition we support every captain by providing guidelines and tools to assess and minimise risk. These are reviewed regularly. Each and every Captain we contract with has access to templates to record the yachts condition, inventory and stowage plan and create a risk assessment. We encourage Captains to brief crews on emergency procedures including fire and man over board. We believe the Captain is the best placed to make best decisions. Our captains know that safety of the boat and crew is paramount above all other considerations.
