The complete management service - taking care of your yacht all year round
Gardiennage = masculine noun caretaking
Princess Motor Yacht Sales can offer a full gardiennnage service to Princess owners whose yachts are lying in those marinas where our offices and facilities are close by. It means that while you are not on board, your yacht is in safe hands. It also means that when you are ready to re-start your adventures, so is your yacht.
When your yacht is in our care, we will carry out regular maintenance and servicing, including winter works, and we will also ensure she is well-protected against the elements, with regular visits, to ensure she is secure.
While you are away, we will carefully monitor the equipment, engines, interior and exterior, and carry out repairs as and when needed.
When you are ready to return to your yacht, our team will ensure she is fully valeted, fuelled and ready to go, so that no time is wasted in getting out on the water. We’ll even do your shopping.
Our Gardiennage team are the same people who work day-in, day-out in our service and maintenance departments, employed by us, and experts in the care of Princess.
Weekly on-board checks include mooring lines and fenders, on-board systems, doors and hatches, batteries, dehumidifiers, and other electrical equipment. We will also report any faults or problems we find to you, and make arrangements for their repair.
A professionally managed, expert programme of boat maintenance, ensuring work is carried out to a high standard, including recommendations for winterising your yacht.
