About Spectro | Jet-Care
Superyacht equipment and machinery, whether engine room or deck, is expected to operate in harsh conditions and is vulnerable to dynamic influences from lack of use and other scenarios rarely encountered on land. As such the need for a rigid and thorough maintenance schedule is sacrosanct and well known in the industry.
Accelerated wear and what the insurance industry calls “catastrophic failure” (beyond repair with collateral damage) is nothing new to yacht operators. Add to this manning levels and de-skilling and the likelihood of failure is regrettably increased many-fold. Operators can however improve matters by adopting sophisticated yet simple condition monitoring practices that require minor intervention by the yacht’s crew, nor complex interpretation by management staff or owner’s representatives.
Machinery that requires lubrication is the most likely to wear and subsequently fail if the lubricant becomes contaminated, breaks down or subjected to external stress from component overload. Visual indicators are often way too late and irreparable damage may well have already occurred. Today the practice of oil analysis as a maintenance procedure is widespread and as with all disciplines there are different levels of competence, service and application.
Spectro | Jet-Care are leaders in equipment condition monitoring for the global Superyacht industry and with over 45 years of specialist knowledge, and close to 1300 superyachts in our programme, our high precision services ensure better understanding of the health of equipment as well as oil performance and condition, all combined with unrivalled customer service.
