Mike's Primary Service Goal: “get it right, the first time”

IN-PORT and UNDERWAY SERVICES

Mike Patterson -and his crew- provides yacht service and training; which is primarily geared toward the needs of "private" motor yachts, and sailing vessels over 12 meters.

Wide-ranging services include, and are NOT limited to:
Marine Mechnical and Technical Services in-port and underway
Delivery Captain, and/or Engineer
Owner and Crew Training: Seamanship, Docking and Manuvering, Damage Control and Prevention, and Basic Marine Engineering
Marine Consultant    
Providing a "can-do" attitude
​with vessel and crew safety always our  primary concern

aaThere are several factors to consider when making preparations for a vessel to go to sea. The first consideration is choosing the right crew.  The right crew will feel a sense of responsibility, as to the final outcome of the ship's intended voyage. The right crew must be competent. Competency is the result of a wide ranging skill-set, and years of experience at sea.
