Full System Check - 20-Point inspection

When you bring your yacht to our Fort Lauderdale marina, one of the first things we’ll do is perform a full system check – what we call a 20-point inspection. Before our yacht maintenance experts start any repair jobs or other projects on your boat, they must complete this 20-point inspection. During this basic full system check, our qualified technicians inspect a wide selection of systems and individual items both inside and outside your yacht.

Yacht Management’s 20-point inspection is separated into ten focus areas, which are listed below. Our yacht maintenance personnel will diligently go through the multiple tasks listed under each of these categories and check them off after they are successfully completed. By executing our full system check, we’ll ensure your yacht is splash ready in no time!

Exterior

The exterior of a yacht is the first thing you and everyone else will see. Obviously, you’ll want to maintain the appearance of your yacht’s exterior. Many elements found in your vessel’s exterior also have functional uses. To make sure you yacht looks good and functions effectively on the outside, our technicians will check for any scratches, tears, or any other surface damage. They’ll also inspect your fenders, lines, and a variety of other things.

Batteries

Dead or severely depleted batteries are useless for your yacht. Our yacht maintenance experts will check the condition of your boat’s batteries and multiple other elements connected to them. They’ll especially look out for any signs of water leaks and corrosion.

Helm

The helm serves as the navigation hub for a yacht’s captain when underway. Its typically where the captain steers the vessel. Making sure the helm is maintained and in working order is critical for safe and successful cruising. Today’s helms are much more modernized than their older counterparts – multiple digital navigation equipment and interfaces are now staples. During our full system check, our technicians inspect that electronic equipment, in addition to many other things found at the helm.

Bilge Pumps

Working bilge pumps is critical for keeping your yacht clean and afloat. Without working bilge pumps, excessive amount of water, dirt, and oil can collect at the bottom of your vessel. That’s why our yacht maintenance experts are sure to inspect your bilge pumps regularly.

Our yacht maintenance personnel will diligently go through the multiple tasks listed under each of these categories and check them off after they are successfully completed.

Seacocks

During a 20-point inspection, our technicians will check on the condition of all your yacht’s seacocks and any other marine valves that permit water to flow into your vessel.

Motors

Typically, the focus area that takes the most time to inspect, motors are obviously an essential part of your yacht. Our full system check covers inspections of your vessel’s engine, engine room, and generators. Fuel levels, oil checks, and run engine tests are just some of the tasks that are performed under this category.

Interior General

The interior spaces of your yacht are what make up your home away from home. To maintain a high level of luxury for you and your guests, everything from electronics and appliances to lights and plenty of other things must be kept in working order. That’s why our 20-point inspection includes checking your yacht’s interior.

Sanitation

A more specific category of interior inspection, this step in our full system check focuses on all plumbing and fresh water systems. Regular maintenance of showers, toilets, water tanks, and more are necessary for a stress-free yachting experience.

A/C Systems

When you are cruising the warm and sunny waters of the Caribbean, there’s nothing you want less than for your air conditioning to stop working. It’s easy to see why our full system check covered inspections of the A/C systems in your yacht.

 

Safety Equipment

All boats are required to have safety equipment and supplies in case of an emergency. Keep your mind at ease – our yacht maintenance experts will make sure your yacht is fitted with enough safety gear like flares, life vests, and other emergency supplies.
