FYG Charter Operations employ a methodical maintenance program and take great pride in always doing a cost effective, yet tip-top quality job. The terminology used refers to A, B, C, and D maintenance.
A maintenance is the maintenance scheduled as a result of the end of a charter debriefing. These items are attended to prior to the start of the next charter.
B maintenance is the periodic oil, gearbox and other fluid changes required for preventive maintenance. These are typically programmed into down time between charters and these are computer tracked for preciseness.
C maintenance is the major maintenance that is scheduled annually where the boat could be hauled and bottom painted as necessary, engine and transmission manufactures’ recommended “major” maintenance is performed as well as cosmetic work to hull and bright work.
D maintenance is maintenance done at the end of the contract (“EOC”) when your yacht exits the program . This will be scheduled per the management contract. As the contract approaches the end the Owner will be contacted and may be offered an extension if the owner’s plan is to keep the yacht, the handover date will be determined based on specific owner’s needs and timing. This is normally 4-6 weeks from the EOC date, but could be sooner or later depending on the agreement reached between the Owner and Yacht Operations.
