Insight. Know-how. Performance

“I am pleased to say that after a vigorous selection process with many other companies we chose to work with Franc and JMS. We trust Franc with his New Build experience and commercial background…the systems JMS bring to the table are very much tailored to our yacht and team…I respect Franc, with his background, to be honest and a straight talker.”

Klaudio Marcelic 90m PROJECT SHARK

Welcome to JMS

First for Yacht Management Solutions

“I set up JMS because I think that yacht management can be done better.

We don’t do ‘back-handers’. We don’t tell our clients work needs to be done when it doesn’t. And we don’t hide our accounts and your spending from you.

We do believe in providing you with 100% transparent, experienced and informed yacht management and crew recruitment.

We do believe that if we look after you and your yachting assets and crew, then you will stick with us. And that is how my business has grown.

I look forward to working with you when you need us.”

JMS Client Promise

My team and I have a combined experience in commercial shipping and yachting of over 170 years and in all that time we have heard some terrible horror stories from Owners and Captains who have been let down by well meaning, poorly resourced, and inexperienced yacht management providers.

Our mantra is not just to provide the highest standard of service, problem solving and task execution our industry can offer but to analyse the fails that have affected so many clients, so in turn we can ensure JMS clients remain the best protected and most properly served of all.

“We are enormously grateful to Rob for these additional ten months of margin he has given us. Rob has been a mainstay for everyone at STP; his commitment, his positivism, his technical knowledge, his ability to communicate and reach consensus are not easy abilities to replace in one person.”
Carlos Morales – Astilleros de Mallorca

Luxury Yacht Management by JMS

For Owners & Captains

JMS Help Guides

Henry Ford once said, “If you always do what you’ve always done, you’ll always get what you’ve always got.”

Yachting as an industry, a business, and a service is still developing. There is a lot to do to bring it up to the level of professionalism that most Owners and Captains rightly expect of it.

The team at JMS have dedicated their careers to advancing some of the most far-reaching changes.

We have been at the forefront in implementing and negotiating recent laws, regulations, and good-practice in yachting today including the MCA Large Yacht Code and the recent ILO MLC 2006 regulations.

Coming from Commercial Shipping where safety, compliance and flawless execution are paramount, we are focussed on raising the game in yachting so our Owners and Captains have fewer things to worry about in their pursuit of excellence and pleasurable luxury yachting.

JMS - Keeping You Up To Date

Whether or not you choose JMS for your financial, operational, safety & compliance or crewing needs, we believe that helping to keep you informed of the latest developments in yachting, yacht management and our own services and solutions, can help you make smarter decisions on the future enjoyment of your yacht.

Our Interests Outside of Yachting

Perhaps more than any other sector in yachting, Yacht Management is a people business.

Solutions tend to come so much more readily when specialists not only work together but enjoy working together. So we thought we would share some of our other passions in life.

Let us know if you share some of these pastimes as well!

Motorbikes

“I get a real kick out of engineering, speed and being on the open road. Building classic motorbikes is the gift that keeps on giving.”

Franc JANSEN

Cricket

“I love cricket – watching and playing it. I notched up 220 runs ‘not out’ in a league game in the UK once.  together…”

Sam THOMPSON

Speed

“Two wheels, four wheels and especially a snowboard. Adventure, speed and exhilaration is what keeps me going.”

Rachel FISHER

Sailing

“Nothing quite like hitting the water in my sailing boat ad getting back to nature”

Rob PIJPER

Calligraphy

“I love it. I practice it twice a week with a big brush and black ink on the traditional bamboo or Xuan paper.”

Sophie Zhou

Upcycling

“When I moved house I decided to seek out antique and second-hand furniture and upcycle it into exactly the style and colour I wanted”

Carla SWAINE

$

Canyoning

“If it keeps me fit and it’s outdoors then I love it – running, mountain biking, swimming and especially canyoning. ”
