It is often said that managing a superyacht is like running a business. We certainly replicate many of the same financial practices: forecasting and managing budgets, ensuring cashflow, helping set up payroll schemes, the list goes on.
We handle all financial matters in-house with a team of highly skilled and immensely experienced accountants. Clients enjoy one point of contact and the knowledge that an incredible team backs them. Your Sunseeker SYM representative will discuss financial arrangements with you and your captain, ensuring your yacht is compliant wherever you are operating.
Each month, you will receive customised accounts illustrating a breakdown of expenditure. These will highlight payments to suppliers and outgoings on the captain's credit card, all of which we manage. Ours is a professional, business-like operation similar to any of your other interests or businesses.
Adopting the new generation Deep Blue real time yacht management software, our team can manage your yacht from anywhere, at anytime, using a simple user-friendly mobile interface. From financial accounting to crew and yacht documentation, engine room maintenance, logbook, charter activities or working shifts arrangement and MLC compliance, we can manage 100% of the operational needs of our fleet remotely, and you can rest in the knowledge that your asset is safe and secure.
From St. Tropez to Capri we have enjoyed the best marinas. Because of SYM and their relationships we had excellent service at all of the ports we visited.
I am writing this letter to commend SYM and your dedicated team of yachting experts. I was fortunate to acquire a used 27 metre yacht near Cannes France that was previously managed by your company. Your expert team was able to prepare SOFI V for an extended cruising vacation throughout The Mediterranean Sea in a very short period of time. SYM was able to provide mechanical services, soft goods, cruising advice, staffing services, compliance logistics, financial administration and operational support during our entire journey. We were able to in a short time see the coastlines of France, Italy and Spain. No matter how difficult and popular the port of call was your team was able to network and find us a berth in the most desirable of locations. And this was always accomplished in a short period of time with little advance notice. From St. Tropez to Capri we have enjoyed the best marinas. Because of SYM and their relationships we had excellent service at all of the ports we visited.
Being on a boat we are accustomed to things not always going as planned. When weather intervened we were able to adjust our schedule and continue our holiday. When “issues” arose we always knew you could find us a solution. SYM even went to great lengths to resource a part for our generator and had a staff member deliver it to us personally taking many hours out of her schedule to assist us. We cannot thank you and the team at SYM enough for making our 2015 summer Mediterranean cruise the best, one that SOFI V and her guests will not forget. As we prepare to load our boat and ship her back to the USA knowing that there are companies like SYM will make returning to the Med an easy option. I promise to give you more ad-vance warning. My only complaint is that we do not have service like yours in Florida and the Bahamas. Wishing you con-tinued success in the yachting world and cannot wait to repeat this journey on SOFI VI.
