One of the major grievances of your owners and captains is that the process starts with a budget of 100 and ends up costing 150. It is frequent that budgets are substantially overrun due the lack of clarity. So how do we prevent this from happening.

5 steps to clarity

  1. First and foremost we need to set acceptance criteria to manage expectations. We’ll tell you more about these criteria here.
  2. The second step is to evaluate the status of the vessel, the square meters of the areas to be painted, the amount of damaged areas, fittings that need to be removed etc. We have a refit program called “the Super Yacht tender survey” , developed for the following:
    • Like for like quotes
    • Clear objectives
    • No surprises and overrunning budgets
    • Value for money
    • Experts overseeing the refit.
  3. The third step is a kick-off meeting in order to have all items clear to parties involved.
  4. The fourth step involves intermediate surveys done by experts.
  5. Step five is a final survey to make sure that all work has been carried out according to specification as agreed in the kick-off meeting and the contract.
