Purely Yacht Management

Jansen Maritime Services will concentrate on one core proposition – Yacht Management. Over the past few years Jansen has seen a major shift in the industry and firmly believes that it is difficult to offer the owner a true management or new build service whilst also running a brokerage and charter business. 

With his vast experience in both the commercial and superyacht world, Jansen is using the latest software systems that gives all parties 24/7 access to the same platform. “In the past, companies and owners have

worked off a number of different system” Jansen explains, “But this simply complicates reporting and adds unnecessary working hours on to the delivery of a concise and accurate report to owners plus, it can also lead to errors or mistakes” Jansen Maritime Services will bring everything under one roof, allowing more time for one to one interaction with clients, which is what Jansen does best.

The principal areas of business are; Yacht Management, New build and refit supervision, Crewing, consultancy and Safety Management (ISM/ISPS/MLC).

We are yacht managers, pure and simple. No sales, no charter just yacht management.

We combine my experience in the commercial world and the 10 years in yachting to provide a better service. Use new technology and innovative ideas, everything we do is focussed on providing and improving the service – getting results. Anything else is noise and meaningless sales talk
