Andrew Weir Yacht Management has announced that it has been contracted as the sole provider of technical management services to Eclipse.
The company will be responsible for providing a full ISM system and related services, including the appointment of a designated person ashore and 24-hour emergency response. Technical services will include the implementation and approval of a new planned maintenance system and liaison between flag state, class and the yacht.
“Having thoroughly considered the yacht’s external technical management requirements and after detailed discussions, we chose Andrew Weir Yacht Management on the basis of their large yacht experience, professionalism and attention to detail. The crew and I are very much looking forward to working with Andrew Weir Yacht Management” commented the captain of Eclipse.
“We are delighted to be handling the technical management of Eclipse and look forward to working with the owner’s representatives and the captain, officers and crew”, said Steve Corkhill, managing director of AWYM.
A key factor with this technical management contract is that AWYM will work in partnership with the yacht’s onboard management team. “Every management contract is different, and in most cases, ‘top-down’ management simply doesn’t work in the yachting industry. Our service to Eclipse will be as flexible as possible and management decisions will be taken in conjunction with the client’s representatives to ensure that the operation of the yacht is never compromised” added Daniel Taylor, business development manager of AWYM.
With the addition of Eclipse, Andrew Weir Yacht Management now provides services to a fleet in excess of 15 large private and charter yachts.
