YCO Yachts starts the new year with a new department that will be dealing exclusively with safety, security and pollution control. Further YCO announced three new central agencies and the launching of a new website.
ISM and ISPS announcement
YCO have recently set up a new Compliance Department that will be dealing exclusively with Safety (International Safety Management – ISM), Security (International Ship and Port Security - ISPS), and Pollution control. The new YCO ISM and ISPS systems are user friendly and yacht specific. They are designed to comply with the codes requirements with nominal reporting and minimal additional work load on the vessel and crew. Having recently completed Office audits by the Cayman Islands Shipping Registry and Lloyds Classification Society over 10 vessels have now been successfully introduced into the new YCO systems.
World Super Yacht Celebration - Moscow
YCO attended the first World Super Yacht Celebration in Moscow shortly before Christmas along with many of the other leading industry professionals. The luxury event provided the opportunity for the YCO managers to meet prospective clients from the Russian market and discuss their requirements regarding luxury yachts, and we now look forward to fulfilling those requirements.
YCO have just launched their new website with a new look and added functionality. Ycoyacht.com is one of the most comprehensive websites in the industry, listing many yachts for sale and charter with an array of exterior and interior images and detailed specifications. All of the comprehensive services offered by YCO are now detailed on the site and the revolutionary search engine has made it even easier to search for specific yacht types.
