THE FINAL TOUCH
How to get ready for the coming season. Felix Brockmann looks at why you need interior touch up specialists to help prepare the yacht for a busy charter season
New year, new yacht season. If you’re not spending the winter months in the Caribbean or the Pacific, this quiet and cold time is perfect for renovation and repair work on the yacht, especially on the interior. It is a well-known fact that normal use over a long period of time will show signs of wear and tear. For this very reason, a touch-up check between seasons is a standard appointment in the calendar of every yacht. Regardless of whether it is a charter or private yacht, if you start the new season with a spotless interior, the like-new feeling is quickly transmitted to the guests and crew on board and gives everyone’s time on the water a special boost.
If you are not in a shipyard over the winter for an extensive refit or major repair work, but spend the winter in one of the many marinas around the Mediterranean, then you are dependent on the touch-up work being carried out on site. It is precisely for these mobile and international assignments that the German company bsw yachteinrichter offers a special service with its in-house touch-up team. The company specialises exclusively in yacht interior fittings and with its dedicated team, can process enquiries within the shortest possible time and carry out the orders on board.
A brief look at the experience gained by the company in the past from the numerous orders shows that there are areas that show particularly strong and frequent visible signs of use. These include in particular all floors, door areas (including sliding doors), loose furniture and often various lighting. Regardless of whether it is the owner’s, guest or crew area, damage or classic signs of use can occur everywhere.
