Jansen Maritime Services (JMS) has joined forces with Heesen Yachts Service to provide yacht management to its clients.

The announcement follows on from the launch of Heesen Yacht Services, a new set of branded services designed by the Dutch shipyard to enhance the benefits of yacht owners.

Heesen Yacht Services comprises four business units: Heesen Yachts Management, Heesen Original Spare Parts, Heesen Refit and the Heesen Academy. JMS has been chosen to deliver the yacht management element.

Yacht management

Founded by Franc Jansen, JMS operates offices in the South of France and the UK.

JMS’ principal areas of business are yacht management, new build and refit supervision, crewing, consultancy and safety management (ISM/ISPS/MLC).

In collaboration with JMS, Heesen Yachts is offering full management services to its fleet of yachts. Both companies say that the combination of the management experience of JMS and the shipyard’s in-depth knowledge sets the service apart.

“Providing cost-effective, transparent and dedicated support, Heesen Yacht Management can oversee the complete range of operational, technical, financial and compliance requirements from insurance, accounting and manning to maintenance reviews, refits and safety management.

“The end result is that operational reliability is improved and the value of the yacht is maintained,” JMS says in a statement.

Over the past few years Jansen has seen a major shift in the industry and firmly believes that it is difficult to offer the owner a true management or new build service whilst also running a brokerage and charter business.

The team at JMS combines experience in the commercial shipping and superyacht world to provide a more streamlined and enhanced service.
