Yacht management companies and Pursers go hand-in-hand. Which is why teaming up with Invisible Crew was a highlight in the company’s early stages. The synergy provides worry-free Pocket Superyacht ownership, through the placement of quality crew. Working behind the scenes, offering administrative expertise and support, Virtual Pursers couldn’t be happier to be a part of the Invisible Crew journey. “I was introduced to VP as a solution when my admin assistant was forced to focus solely on our marketing. Today I have a scalable team of assistants with in depth yachting knowledge which - apart from handling the mundane admin tasks - are capable of solving every challenge thrown at them. This has decreased my personal workload and further increased the quality and scope of our services. Now our Pocket Superyacht owners have Invisible Superyacht Pursers on board!”
Not only catering to management companies, newbuilds are also in the mix with one of their innovative developments – The Purser Template. Virtual Pursers understand that setting up a Newbuild is no easy feat. The administration side of things may be an initial requirement, however it does not necessarily warrant a full time resource. Simplifying matters, Virtual Pursers offer a flexible, cost-effective solution which involves; streamlining the administration setup from the get-go, making sure that all of the information and documentation is in logical order.
Expansion is definitely on the horizon for this dynamic duo. Virtual Pursers are extremely humbled to be in the position of accepting CV’s from potential candidates. “We’re excited about those interested in joining our journey”, says Bec, Co-founder.
