Facilitating the provision of a loading computer

A relatively common issue for yachts when they are first delivered is an inability to fill their fuel oil, lube oil and fresh water tanks whilst remaining compliant with the relevant stability criteria. This is especially the case with semi-production yachts, where an owner has added additional weight via change orders that must be mitigated by a reduction in the overall deadweight.

In one such instance we recommended to a client that they install loading and stability software to help ensure that the yacht wasn’t overloaded or the stability compromised. We researched and recommended the most appropriate option and then oversaw the installation of the software and relevant hardware.

Whilst loading computers are increasingly common on very large yachts we also see that they can be used to great effect on many other class of yachts, especially as the cost is so low.
