Yard periods play an integral role in ongoing superyacht maintenance. Vessels of all sizes routinely need scheduled haul outs in order to keep yachts in a safe and functioning state. Standard operating procedures (or SOP’s) are critical in ensuring the vessel is prepared for dry dock as well as splashing back into the water upon completion. SOP’s go a long way to eliminating the chance of human error when preparing for these often fast paced and stressful times onboard for engineers.
International Safety Management, or ISM, is a safety standard that many Captains and officers have an in depth understanding of. Many vessels voluntarily chose to enforce the ISM code in order to run the safetst possible programs onboard. In the ever changing superyacht industry, ISM compliance is becoming increasingly more dependant on digital platforms to enable Captains, management and crew more tools to keep on top of their safety and compliance responsibilities.
Unplanned breakdowns are costly recurrences on all superyachts. With an established maintenance plan in place the quantity of breakdowns can be significantly reduced. However, it is inevitable that some slip through the cracks. Seahub’s defect log gives users another tool for managing the life of your machinery and a central place to log, track and close out defects onboard.
