3 USEFUL TIPS TO OPTIMIZE YACHT MAINTENANCE PROJECTS 2. Research your desired subcontractors and make sure they have the skills and expertise to deliver the desired results and meet your expectations. Cheapest isn’t the best!

Since founded in 1992, AME has taken part in thousands of projects involving yacht main- tenance. One recurring pattern that results in lost time and money is a lack of planning. All yachting professionals are looking out for their owners to help them save money. This often results in an “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” mindset which is actually a corrective maintenance-based way of thinking. Inadver- tently, machinery problems aren’t realized or addressed until they become a severe issue or cause a failure. As a reliability-focused machinery services company, AME focuses on preventative and predictive maintenance by way of condition monitoring. We work to save our clientele time, money and head- aches by steering them away from corrective practices, towards a predictive and preven- tative maintenance mindset. In essence, by “predicting” what your machinery will do, you are “preventing” issues from occurring. This reduces the chance of budget-busting significant repair costs that often catch us by surprise. Here are some helpful pointers that are a modest investment that will ultimately save you time and money in the long haul: 1. Before you haul out, get a vibration analysis survey by a reputable company to prioritize your shipyard needs and service goals. Vibration analysis can spot any issues, such as misalignment, propeller problems, engine misfire, exhaust system deficiencies, and dete- riorated mounts and worn bearings. It can also pinpoint crucial mechanical elements that need attention, and forecast what problems are likely to appear. With your report, you will be able to lay out the needs and goals of your project to ensure your machinery is ready for when you need it to be.

Your contractors are vital to maintaining the efficiency of the yard period and keeping you on schedule. Maintaining good commu- nication and ensuring they have thorough information, such as drawings, a work list, and technical documents will help ensure that the yard can adequately accommodate you. Ensuring your contractors are credible and reliable will prevent potential issues that can result in costly downtime. 3. Parts procurement - some parts can take 3+ months to get. Look into what you need and pre-order to avoid delays Pre-order parts and materials - some of the longest yard period wait times include waiting for a part to be rebuilt or an vital part to be shipped. Bottom line, the more proactive you are with your maintenance, the more significant your ROI will be for the investments you make into your machinery. “AME worked tirelessly to get us out on time and meet our very tight schedule. The lead engineer and service manager were always informative and kept our priorities in check. It was a tough project and AME remained positive and diligent throughout.” – Project Manager, M//Y 170’ Palmer Johnson “There is definitely a huge improvement with the new mounts at all rev ranges, especially at idle. Vibration throughout the interior is massively reduced, so we are very pleased as you can imagine with AME’s work.”– Chief Engineer, S/Y 137’ Graafship
