Further Yacht Services

At Grabau International we aim to support our clients by providing a ‘one stop’ solution to all possible yachting requirements. Aside from our in-house brokerage, new yacht sales and yacht conveyancing services, and our links with leading marine finance and insurance companies, we are also able to assist with areas such as boat yard services, marina berthing, yacht delivery, transport & shipping, yacht tuition and yacht charter.

Below is a little more information on each of these Yacht Services areas.

Boat Yard Services

The purchase and subsequent ownership of any yacht will inevitably require a certain degree of service, repair, refit and ongoing preventative maintenance. This does not need to be complicated, time-consuming or unnecessarily expensive.

We are able to put buyers and sellers in touch with a number of companies who cater for everything from simply changing an anode through to the most comprehensive of yacht refits.

Services can include:

  • GRP repairs
  • Teak deck repair or replacement
  • Electrical repairs or replacement
  • Engineering servicing, repairs and replacement
  • Rigging checks, overhaul and replacement
  • Sail making, repair and laundering
  • Cover and upholstery making, repair and laundering
  • Winterisation and re-commissioning
  • Osmosis repairs
  • Yacht and rig painting
  • Joinery modifications
  • Comprehensive refit and project management
  • Ongoing yacht management
  • Routine valeting and annual polishing

Yacht delivery, transport and shipping

There are many instances where it is not convenient for an owner to move their own yacht. Reasons may include time, cost, confidence or a desire to minimise wear & tear on the vessel. Fortunately, there are a number of options available to the yacht owner, whether delivering the yacht from one side of the Solent to the other or shipping it to, or from the other side of the globe.

We are able put buyers or existing yacht owners in contact with a number of companies who arrange and provide dedicated fully-crewed yacht delivery, international road transport and global yacht shipping.

Marina Berthing

For many, finding a suitable marina berth is almost as important as finding the right yacht. We work closely with a number of marina operators in the UK and Europe and can provide access to over 17,500 marina berths to help prospective and current yacht owners find the right berth for their needs.

Whether a yacht owner is a complete novice or a more experienced sailor with many thousands of sea-miles covered, the learning process is never complete. While there may be few statutory requirements in the UK for an owner to hold formal qualifications, tuition is an excellent way to increase confidence and enjoyment for an owner and their crew.

We are able to introduce buyers and yacht owners to a number of companies and individually qualified instructors who offer a comprehensive range of tuition courses and methods including:

  • RYA training courses from taster sessions to Ocean master qualifications
  • VHF & SSB courses
  • Own boat ‘one-on-one’ tuition
  • Yacht & engine maintenance
  • Weather
  • Offshore safety and survival training
  • Instructor training
  • General boat handling
  • Ladies only training
  • RYA Competent Crew – Ocean master
  • RYA Day Skipper
  • International Certificate of Competence
  • Yacht racing
  • Sail trim
  • First aid and medical training

Yacht Charter

Yacht charter can be an excellent way to offset some of the costs associated with yacht ownership. A wide variety of options exist for an owner, ranging from bareboat charter through to fully-crewed ‘champagne’ chartering. Whether it be setting the yacht up for the occasional skippered day out on the Solent, a focussed Fastnet campaign or a full MCA Cat-0 coded circumnavigation adventure we can help buyers and yacht owners link up with companies who are able to assist in the preparation, structure, marketing and management of a charter venture.
