Rock Your Refit

28th September: 09:30 – 12.00

Crew Deck


Optimising a refit can save large sums of money, a great deal of time and stress during the refit and potentially huge issues in the future.


Contractors, Captains and Project Managers collaborate in this Masterclass to present the insiders guide to leaving the refit yard with total confidence, on time and in budget.


The masterclass will begin with a panel discussion that looks at the entire refit process and all the supporting documents that provide a step by step guide to managing your refit.


Discussions will cover the keys to success:


  • The industry needs to improve transparency in the quotation system. Quotes can vary wildly because companies are including a wide range of different costs in their quotes
  • Effective detailed surveys
  • The project documentation spells out clearly every detail of the refit and all is agreed by all parties. These include communications plans, lines of responsibilities, roles and timescales
  • Final surveys are signed of by all parties legal documents protecting the yacht and contractor in the event of future problems


Following the panel discussion, breakout groups will use the latest in refit and maintenance software to analyse important elements of the yacht in refit. ACREW has sourced the best contractors, consistently delivering trusted, excellent work to discuss their specialist area, sharing knowledge and experience simply and clearly.


Attendees will leave with the complete picture. If you are refitting soon this masterclass will be the perfect preparation, providing knowledge, experience and contacts that will be of immeasurable value.

Pushing Limits: Managing Crew Resources to Reduce Onboard Incidents

29th September: 14:00 – 17:00

Crew Deck


Working on a superyacht is not your regular 9 – 5 job. It comes with great benefits and great challenges. One of these challenges is the workload and hours, particularly when owners and guests are onboard. For Captains and HoD’s, managing the expectations of owners, guests and management whilst ensuring the safety and well-being of crew is sometimes a tough and blurry line to walk.


The bringing together of the expertise in this Masterclass will really move on practice in the industry. Debbie Elliott and Colette Hodson from TAG Aviation will contribute a unique perspective from an industry that is years ahead in terms of crew resource management. Perfect for Captains wishing to be out ahead of industry developments.


Andy Langford from Regs4Yachts will share his insights from years of ISM and inspections. in terms of preparedness for incidents onboard and how to ensure small problems do not turn into major incidents. Working towards more effective crew resource management in combination with effective emergency training as an industry will serve to reduce the number of incidents onboard that lead to harm of individuals, vessel or reputation.


Break out sessions will develop these concepts and draw on the expertise of facilitators from various fields including crew coaching, maritime regulations, insurance and the military.


Attendees will be part of a leading edge conversation that will continue in the industry as these concepts are applied. They will leave with the knowledge and resources to affect immediate positive change onboard.
