Yacht management Packages or On-Demand

The job of the yacht manager is relatively new, even if the role is not. Before the industry and size of yachts grew, owners managed their yachts themselves or hired a member of their crew. With the increase in the number of owners who have neither the time, nor the desire nor the ability to manage their own yachts, the demand for specialized yacht managers has arisen. For a long-term hiring or to assign specific tasks, choose our Yacht Management services. Consultancy for the purchase and sale, selection, hiring and payroll of the crew, management of refit projects and new construction is what we do. Yotman is a project to simplify business management.
