Having bought a super yacht of one’s own is the first and definitely the brightest step. Yacht management by Aberton Yachts stands for transparency in managing a yacht, and our management team is there to handle the full spectrum of yacht operations. We adjust and tailor our services to save the Owner’s feeling of calmness and control - in any situation, from travel planning to crew hiring and costs regulation.
Aberton Yachts has carefully elaborated the procedures and criteria for the crew hiring. Basing on the wishes, requirements and routes formulated by a yacht Owner, we make preliminary choice between dozens of candidates from international crew databases.
On the next stage we thoroughly verify the employment history and qualifications of the candidates, as well as their recommendations from colleagues, communicative skills and personal qualities. We clarify and negotiate on their financial expectations from the job. After having checked out the documents and having passed fundamental interviewing, the list of several final candidates is presented before the Owner.
The crucial task in yacht insurance is to find a clear-sighted balance between rational economy when choosing insurance products with minimal franchise and the feeling of safety that the insurance products with comprehensive coverage can create. p>
More than 15 years of insuring yachts and partnership with the world’s best insurance companies, profound understanding of all the procedures and terms allow us to grant protection and reimbursement in any cases, from minor dents and impact damage to major losses, fires or personal injury.
Our Clients have the opportunity to choose individualized insurance products and services that correspond to their actual needs and style of yachting. Insurance coverage may differ from one-off insurance policies, like insuring during the period of winter storage or insuring of some elements of the superstructure of a vessel.
Package insurance programs vary from standard ones, covering the periods of mooring and yachting, to comprehensive “all-risks” programs that cover a vessel from any damage, e.g. the damage to the third parties that would ever be caused by the yacht Owner.
Aberton Yachts has great practical expertise in legislative support of yachting deals between clients from the EU, Russia and Middle Asia. We render a comprehensive and customized juridical service: audit of international contracts, guidance and support of buy&purchase deals, legal advice for negotiating agreements between the Seller and the Buyer, opening of a new company in the country of the selected yacht registration, help while getting the package of documents for registration of a vessel in different flag states.
Our company can offer flawless solutions to structure the financial, loan and tax aspects of a deal to achieve maximum value creation in the context of the Client’s individual needs. Aberton Yachts has expert knowledge and strong connections with leading financial and banking institutions of the EU, thus allowing to get the best conditions on leasing and credit programs in the short period of time. For our Clients we propose tailored leasing arrangements to effectively reduce the VAT rate to 5 – 6% (the percentage depends on the length of a yacht and financial terms).
Aberton Yaсhts can offer the widest list of flag states for yacht registration. Every state implies its own rather peculiar list of requirements and documents, depending on the length and type of a vessel, terms of registration, conditions of accepting, presence of temporary registration before applying for the main one and other nuances.
We can offer both offshore registration or an EU flag registration with the paid VAT. In combination with an effective lease scheme the tax rate can be decreased significantly.
Aberton Yachts has years of experience in transportation of yachts. Our contractors are the world leading carriers and logistics companies. We supply yachts from the shipyards of Spain, Great Britain, the Netherlands or from any other waters and marinas to the Client’s location wherever in the world. Our expertise in transportation enables us to make complex multimodal or combined transportations of super yachts to the Mediterranian, the Black Sea, South-Eastern Asia, Australia and South America. For yachts under 60 feet we can propose transportation by specialized road transport, depending on the destination point, and for super yachts the most common solution is “float on – float off” loading.
Every year Aberton Yachts makes transportations of dozens of over-sized and extremely large vessels. If the yacht goes by sea from waters of the EU to the waters of other countries, we handle the customs regulation and registration of yachts at a new port. When the yacht is transported by road we prepare export and customs clearance documents, apply for international and local permissions for transportation of oversized cargoes, get approvals of the route from the local authorities and organize specialized convoying transport to ensure safety on the road.
