Sarnia Yachts Adds a New Yacht Management Division


The Sarnia Yacht Management team, headed up by Hans Bouman, hold all the qualifications necessary paired with a wealth of experience, to deliver the highest levels of service to clients with the added benefit of providing a one stop shop for all ownership and crew employment structuring requirements for today’s discerning yacht owners. This eliminates the duplication and additional costs often associated with using separate corporate and Yacht Management services.

In addition to legislative and regulatory compliance, in relation to vessel operation and maintenance, manning, health and safety, security and the marine environment, we have a number of value-added services that make up our Yacht Management offering including; vessel & crew insurance, vessel administration, operational & technical support, inventory control, planned maintenance, refit & repair.

Sarnia Yachts offers the individual elements or the full suite of services depending on the needs of the individual client and their yacht. Placing the responsibility in the hands of specialists gives owners peace of mind and boundless enjoyment of their yacht.

Tim Joyce, Managing Director, Sarnia Yachts says “Having Hans join us and the launch of our Yacht Management service rounds off the Sarnia offering. We are now able to provide an end to end service to yacht owners from an appropriate owning vehicle at the top, right down to the day to day management and operation of yacht and its crew. This is also delivered on one single IT platform, providing efficiencies both in terms of not just cost but also delivery, which will benefit owners when compared to sourcing the component services from different providers”.
