    Crew Management

    Having the right people in place is crucial for any successful operation, but particularly on superyachts where many specialist and diverse skillsets are required. 

    It is essential to have the right crew in place to ensure your yacht is operated safely and efficiently, and maintained to the highest possible standards – thus providing a first class guest experience.

    At Manta, we work closely with yacht owners and captains to manage all crew-related matters – from interviewing applicants, training crew and dealing with disciplinary issues, to organising payroll, insurance and travel.

    This includes assisting owners to comply with the mandatory Maritime Labour Convention 2006 - a carefully planned employment structure in accordance with international social security and welfare legislation. 

  • Operational Support

    Operational Support

    Operating a yacht in the 21st century is becoming increasingly challenging –vessels are getting more technically advanced, suitable berths are becoming harder to find, and the regulatory landscape continues to change and evolve.

    Manta works with each crew as part of one team. Utilising our strong relationships with a wide range of global suppliers and service providers helps to effectively manage these challenges.  We take an independent approach to sourcing vendors, looking at the entire market, rather than choosing from a preferred list. This means we can always get the best value for money for our customers.

    Manta provides valuable assistance with all your day-to-day operational matters – from bunkering and berthing, to provisioning and sourcing spare parts.

  • Financial Management

    Financial Management

    There’s no escaping that owning and operating a yacht is a costly business. And minimising the financial outlay associated with this is often a key concern for owners.

    Careful control of operational and maintenance expenses helps to minimise overheads whilst ensuring asset value is maintained – and any potential charter revenues maximised.

    At Manta, we operate a robust approach to financial management.  We explore the range and value of each vendor to ensure you get the best price for these essential services, as well as the full benefit of any discounts we negotiate for you.

  • Safety and Security

    Manta holds a Document of Compliance for the management of both yachts and passenger ships.  Our safe&simple cloud-based management documentation utilises the latest web technologies – it is also fully compliant with both the Mini ISM requirements and the ISM / ISPS Codes.

    Through a comprehensive schedule of drills and exercises, the emergency response team at Manta is prepared for all scenarios - from an initial response through to liaising with authorities and dealing with the media.

    With Manta you can rest assured that your yacht will be safe and secure.
