Technical management of 130m diesel-electric motor yacht

Manta was directly approached for technical support by the owner of a very large passenger yacht, having been recommended by the team overseeing the build.

With an exceptionally complex vessel which required significant shore-based assistance for maintenance and repairs, the owner wanted first-hand assurance that a technically strong individual would be readily available to assist with this. 

We were able to demonstrate this and our expert was quickly on hand to organise spare parts, repairs, modifications and refits, as well as managing insurance claims and advising on the technical aspects of various legal matters – all to the owner’s satisfaction.
