Jonathan Lee looks at the need for specialised easy to use technical operational and safety manuals for the superyacht industry
With today’s increasingly complex and automated vessels, yacht crew and yacht management are finding it necessary to have clear, concise and up-to-date operating instructions. Bespoke operating procedures create the optimum working environment which will, in turn, prevent accidents and incidents during operations, whilst maximising efficiency and vessel availability to the owners and charterers.
Sentini Marine’s Technical Operating Manuals cover every machine, system and operation on board. They provide a maintainable ‘one- stop’ source of information, comprising of user-friendly levels of information, reinforced by bespoke illustrations and drawings.
Looking to the future of the vessel
The accurate technical documentation provided in digital format (along with the full colour binders and handbooks), aid preparations for work to be carried out in refit periods, as well as ensure continued smooth operation and maintenance of the vessel. This is achieved by having the capacity to mark up, commented on and easily forward jobs to the shipyard before repair or refit, and then update manuals to reflect changes to the vessel and its systems. Documentation updated in a diligent manner will ensure that your vessel always has a unified set of up-to-date instructions, illustrations and drawings on board.
