Comprehensive yachts maintenance is a prerequisite of maintaining yachts performance at the level needed for safe operation of the vessel. To ensure the performance declared by the manufacturer and the desired level of comfort, a professional regular maintenance of components and assemblies of the vessel throughout the whole effective life is required. Taking into account the technical aspect, we have to note, however, that the yacht possession rests mainly on aesthetic emotions. This means that, despite the direct purpose of the yacht as the water transport, the range of tasks assigned to the service center is much broader and more complex than just maintenance of the vessel. It is for this reason that the professionalism of the staff, the experience of the company and its equipment are very important.Azimut Yachts Russia has a network of authorized service centers and offices in Russia and Europe. All our specialists are trained and completed certification at the Azimut Yachts shipyard.

Savona, Italy (40 km from Genoa). The Azimut Delivery Point is situated on the west coast of Italy. This is where we deliver new Azimut yachts to our clients.

Our tried and tested base of reliable partners in these regions allows us to efficiently tackle urgent unplanned tasks, as well as to arrange the schedule of periodic and seasonal works.
Survey is a technical inspection of the vessel, aimed at identifying and ultimately obtaining report on technical condition of the yacht. If you purchased a new boat from the manufacturer, it is Buyer’s representative who conducts a survey to ensure proper condition of acquirable products. Yachts are technically challenging products. Complex notes from surveyors are not mandatory, but they contain a list of comments and observations on positions to be eliminated.
In case of buying Second Hand yacht, this analysis can substantially affect the final price of the transaction, since the true state of the vessel may be a mystery even to the Seller himself. Therefore, without any doubt it is necessary to include a professional survey in a common action plan and costs as a part of the transaction. Full surveying and obtaining a report on technical condition of yacht takes on average 1-3 days depending on a yacht size. The Buyer pays expenses usually after making a deposit for the transaction.
Yacht Insurance reminds car insurance as for the risks and the tasks to be solved. The difference, perhaps, is just that the risk of theft is not so significant or does not exist (speaking about the European market), so the yacht insurance is mostly aimed at third parties protection from possible damage on behalf of the Owner and at repairing losses in case of damages to yacht carelessly brought by the Owner.
We have a lot of experience not only in conclusion of insurance contracts and choice of insurant with a minimum franchise, but also, more importantly, in settlement of losses in loss occurrence. Any such situation is always uncomfortable for the Owner, so it is important to realize the prospects and timescale of such procedures to avoid insurance company refusal to support you and to repair losses.
