A new management company for the maritime industry has launched in the North East to offer value adding services to its customers.
Nautical Management Services is based in Newcastle and is already equipped with a team of maritime professionals with a wealth of industry experience.
The company is focussed on improving performance and simplifying operations for its clients.
With an established fleet of superyachts under management, NMS is looking to diversify into other sectors of the maritime sector such as CTV and maintenance vessels, ferries, small to medium-sized cruise liners and event or experience cruise vessels.
Its services are designed to drive increased uptime, providing simple, transparent and effective solutions to the everyday management of vessels in the commercial maritime market.
They include technical management, crew management, flag state services and vessel audits, CAPEX period project management and ship and yacht delivery.
NMS business development director Stephen Birt said: “Nautical Management Services are an established and trusted vessel manager in the luxury vessel market of superyachts.
“Coming from the oil & gas sector where I have worked in some of the most demanding regulatory environments the maritime world has to offer, I have been very impressed with the high level of competence of personnel, and quality of systems in place to deliver safe, reliable and high – performance services to the vessels under management by the team.
“The intention and desire of NMS is to offer this high level of professional service to other sectors in commercial shipping, and for me this is a really compelling value proposition for each of the sectors we are targeting.”
