On Deck…

At last, it’s arrived! A private training company for yachts and estates that genuinely customizes comprehensive service plans according to the owner’s specific requirements!

On Deck is a niche company that was established to fully support yacht and estate owners by designing and implementing flexible training and service plans.  It’s simple… just build your own personalized package – whether you need general management, crew/staff placement and training, inventory and soft goods assistance, or a general one-time review on ways to enhance your program and its performance.

 Each yacht, estate, and program are unique, and On Deck recognizes the importance of customization and à la carte options. Some owners require targeted solutions for specific issues, while others seek assistance in structuring programs to gain a deeper understanding of operational and financial aspects related to ownership and chartering. An impartial second opinion, whether for performance evaluation, refurbishment, or budgeting, can significantly enhance your ownership experience. All our programs provide transparent budgeting, costs, and clarity.

Share with us your objectives, and then enjoy the rewards of a remarkable and authentic experience.
