New Year, New Yacht Management


We are all familiar with the old adage; ‘The best 2 days of a yacht owner’s life are the day you buy and the day you sell the yacht’. For many owners, this is their reality when it should be the opposite. For many, owning a superyacht offers the pinnacle of relaxation. That is why, when it comes to superyacht management, the processes inexplicably should follow-suit.

Owning a superyacht can come with its own challenges; from crewing matters to mechanical failures- owners should be confident that their management can deal with such issues quickly and transparently, albeit hopefully not in the midst of your summer cruise. With many owners having poor experiences with previous yacht management companies, owners continue to express the same desires when it comes to yacht management requirements; transparency, efficiency and trustworthiness.

JMS can offer all of the above and more.

JMS don’t cut corners. JMS don’t outsource. JMS don’t shy away from facts. JMS believe in providing you with 100% transparent, experienced and informed yacht management and crew recruitment advice.

Franc Jansen, Founder and Director, started the company, firmly believing that Yacht Management should be done better. We only focus on yacht management, specifically not brokering or chartering to avoid any conflicts of interest. We will not try to offer you cut-price management fees to entice you as a charter or brokerage client. We have a small and brilliant team of the highest qualified and most experienced yacht managers in the industry, working hands on directly with your yacht to run it as a business, so you don’t have to. We know and manage the crew. We use the latest technology and systems to manage yachts. We give your team 24/7 access to the yachts financial software. No surprises and total transparency!

If that is not your experience of how your yacht is currently managed, then get in touch with JMS.

Frans HEESEN, the founder of the prestigious Dutch shipyard HEESEN couldn’t have said it better:

Whilst I am perfectly capable of managing my own yacht, I turned to Franc and JMS to manage M/Y PETRA and M/Y LADY PETRA. JMS cut through the nonsense in yachting providing my with the extensive support I need, software that works and proper yachting experience I can respect’.

A good yacht manager takes care of everything so all you need to do is turn up at the gangway and make sure you enjoy your asset as you should, creating unforgettable memories with your family and friends.

JMS are offering ConnectJets clients a free consultation to discuss yacht usage and requirements when seeking alternative management options.
