Lauderdale Marine Services and Propwash are offering the boat maintenance management tool to yacht owners

Two Florida-based yacht management firms – Lauderdale Marine Services and Propwash LLC – have chosen VesselVanguard to facilitate their boat maintenance management services for yacht owners.

A cloud-based predictive fleet management system, VesselVanguard offers automated lifecycle management task notifications, unlimited user set-up and management controls, and warranty management reporting. Its Fleet Management Dashboard provides “Go-No-Go” vessel readiness status with the added ability to look ahead to short-term maintenance requirements, and keeps detailed historic boat profiles ensuring 24/7/365 access to all records for each provisioned yacht, with or without Internet access.

Lauderdale Marine Services and Propwash both provide full-service management services for large yachts and superyachts, including but not limited to arrangements for captains and crews, maintenance services, charter management and registrations for US and foreign vessels.

“We use VesselVanguard to keep us informed of the routine service requirements of our clients’ yachts, and our clients like that they can see at a glance what is needed without getting involved in the detail,” says John Anderson at Lauderdale Marine Services.

Michael Atwell of Propwash LLC adds: “We use VesselVanguard to stay informed so we can pre-empt our customers’ questions. Our clients can easily see what equipment-manufacturers are recommending before we schedule tasks for completion and we can plan our entire business day using the solution. In addition, when the unexpected happens on the water, the mobile app can record those events in real-time with pictures or videos, and save everything to the digital Ship’s Log – aiding in efficient maintenance planning when back at the dock.”

In addition to the VesselVanguard Predictive Fleet Management dashboard allowing the management companies to see upcoming planned maintenance, inspection events, and tasks that arise when underway, it also improves customer service by allowing owners to access their boat profile at any time to review and anticipate upcoming maintenance needs.
