New PYA Partner - Aquator Marine
25 July 2022
The PYA would like to welcome our newest partner Aquator Marine, headquartered in Singapore, which develops Yacht Management Software with a fully configurable, collaborative and digitally secure web and mobile application. It consists of extensively customisable components that can be seamlessly imported, edited and organised. The application allows for personalisation so you can make requests, plan projects, assign tasks and collaborate to track progress and more. Everything can be managed through your phone!
The Yacht Management Software helps with the day-to-day management of a vessel, accounting, insurance, crew, and ISM advice. It is also possible to manage all your crew's information in one place and generate reports to export all your data. Yacht Management software reimagined is here! Aquator is designed for yacht owners, captains, crew and companies to support complex workflows. Contact them by email for more information or a free demo.
Important tasks for your crew this winter
It’s that time of year in the Mediterranean and other northern hemisphere yachting locations when many vessels are lined up in ports for the winter whilst a portion of their crew stay onboard to undertake the important task of ‘winterising’, as well as other key maintenance jobs which didn’t get addressed during the busy summer months of chartering.
Yacht Job Scams on the Rise
Over the last couple of months, the PYA's Member Assistance Service (MAS) has received a number of reports from crew who have been approached by scammers offering false jobs onboard yachts. Along with these direct reports, there has also been a number of incidents reported via the Yacht Crew Facebook Groups.
