Maintenance

A Little Now --- Less Later On...

Preventative maintenance is the key to successfully maintaining a yacht.

There are recommended frequencies for many preventative services such as bottom cleaning, bottom painting, washing/waxing, engine tune-ups, safety checks, etc. to ensure a yacht stays in top condition. Regularly monitoring fluids (and replacing them as required) is also critical to yacht function and safety.

Some yacht owners enjoy hands-on and may only want assistance with certain activities. At Back to Bristol we know that every yacht owner is different and we are flexible in our approach. Together, we will create a checklist, discuss your preferences and agree upon the frequency to perform the recommended activities, identifying which items you would like to handle, if any, and which ones you would like for us to manage and coordinate.

Even with the best preventative care regimen, corrective maintenance is sometimes required. When something fails, it’s important to know who you can trust to perform the maintenance and do what is required. We perform many corrective maintenance services; others, we delegate to our trusted vendor/partners. In either case, we are actively involved throughout the process whether it is hands-on or managing the process to successful completion.
