Swiss Ocean’s service focuses on providing effective yacht management at every stage, from the initial sketches of the yacht through to design, build and recruitment.

Focused approach.

Extensive experience

Our team has incredible experience, comprised of captains, naval architects and master mariners amongst others. With many years of experience between us, we have a history of effective management of large private yachts.

Cross industry knowledge

Swiss Ocean innovate private yachting by bringing in state of the art management systems, technologies and practices from other industries. This can range from consultancy with Ecole hôtelière de Lausanne – perfecting the finishing touches to a guest’s experience, to incorporating the latest practices from the aviation and automobile industries.

A Swiss approach

We focus on providing a service with the very best practices. Characterised by an effective management style and a typically Swiss approach, our service runs smoothly with exceptional attention to detail.

Advanced
technologies.

Swiss Ocean adopts proven technologies from other industries, integrating them into private yachting for the first time, with a focus on enhancing efficiency. One of the technologies we are introducing to private yachting is remote monitoring. Instruments monitor the engines and machinery of the yacht, which is remotely analysed detecting required maintenance up to 6 months in advance and alerting to critical cases 7-30 days in advance. As a result, failures and operational trends can be spotted before failures occur resulting in proactive maintenance, optimum times between overhauls, less downtime and reduced costs.

More than just
a yacht.

We see your yacht as a business, not just so that it is run more efficiently, but so that we can create the best experience for the owner and their guests. With this discipline and our cross industry experience and collaboration, we can make sure that the experience for those on-board is the very best.
