“…if it’s gonna happen, it’s gonna happen out there”
- Captain Ron
Hurricane planning is not only important for the safety of your vessel but is also necessary in order for a boat to be insured. Insurance companies require owners to device and submit a Named Storm Plan to inform them of what you plan to do with your yacht in the event of a named storm approaching.
For boat owners whose boats are in the cone, this plan becomes more important than ever and is often what makes a very difficult and nerve-wracking situation manageable. These plans are quite detailed and extensive, and require professional expertise.
Self-Managed Hurricane Plan
Premium Captain Manages Hurricane Plan
Our team of Premium Captains along with crew have extensive experience in preparing boats for hurricanes and named storms for many years here in South Florida. They can provide a thorough assessment of the vessel’s condition and recommend the best practices for preparing it for severe weather.
The use of extra lines, the removal of soft goods, and the taping down of doors and latches are some of the best practices for preparing a yacht for a hurricane or named storm. Our team coordinates these practices and ensure that they are carried out correctly, minimizing the risk of damage to the vessel.
The specific needs of each yacht can vary based on the size, location, and condition of the vessel. Yacht management professionals and captains can provide a tailored approach to hurricane and named storm preparation, based on the unique needs of each vessel.
Peace of Mind
Yacht owners can have peace of mind knowing that their vessel is in good hands and that every precaution has been taken to protect it from severe weather. Our Premium Captains and crew take the risks so that you don’t have to.
