check-up and technical X-Ray
Following our more than 20 years of experience, we have created a regular maintenance check list that ensures a total check-up of your yacht. Designed by the aeronautical sector, the check list is a very valuable tool. It will help you to determine the next steps regarding the maintenance of your yachts for future years. First of all, it gives us a complete technical x-ray of the yacht. We are able to give you a full report distinguishing regular, predictive or exceptional maintenance issues. Secondly, it will also allow you to forecast the maintenance plan within the life cycle of the yacht. Naturally, our project management team will advise you and be at your disposal to answer any questions you may have.
Your project manager can organize the regular maintenance and service following the manufacturer’s schedule and according to the serial number of the engines. We work throughout the year with all naval engine manufacturers or with their representatives and technicians. We provide them with the logistic support and the perfect environment for them to perform their best work on your superyacht.
Two and a Half Year
A superyacht sails in a challenging environment: the sea. With Mother Nature in the driving seat, seas and oceans make life hard for your yacht. This is why at Monaco Marine, we advise all our clients to get at least a two and half year technical check-up that includes a complete inspection of the superyacht. Following the model of the compulsory 5 years survey to obtain class, it minimises all the works that will have to be done on this occasion and it makes it easier to gain class registration.
5, 10, 15 years
The survey is a complete check-up of all the vital organs of the yacht, such as for example, the transmission and propulsion. Every spare part, like the rudder blade, shaft lines and propellers are dismantled and taken into our workshops. There they undergo an inspection to identify any weak spots. An initial visual inspection takes place before the technical tests are carried out by a certified operator to check if the equipment requires any serious repair or needs to be replaced. Every component of the yacht is checked during this survey, including for example, seacocks (which have to be replaced after inspection), the state of the hull (the measure of thickness), corroded areas or points, the anchor and electric systems etc... The deck also undergoes the same level of inspection. The report is then handed to a class registration for checking. Following this, a decision is made whether further investigation or replacement of spare parts is required to satisfy the register and gain the class certification.
