Outfit Management Service (Yacht)


The Outfit Management Service (OMS) lies at the heart of ChartCo’s Superyacht Services partnership approach. By gaining a thorough understanding of a yacht’s requirements and regulatory environment at the outset, we can then offer a seamless and flexible service that ensures that it meets its regulatory requirements at all times, while revisions and updates are delivered to the yacht automatically without the need to reorder individual items.

We will first agree the “outfit” that a yacht should hold on-board. The Outfit comprises the range of charts, publications and digital data that is required to pilot the vessel safely and with compliance against regulations such as SOLAS, MARPOL, ISM and Flag State. As the yacht cruises into different areas of the world, the Outfit will recognise the changes that each area may demand.

At the point of delivery, the Outfit is totally up to date and ready to use.

A Superyacht Services team member will be appointed to personally deal with your yacht, and will contact you at regular intervals to keep you aware of any “New Editions” required to keep your Outfit up-to-date. When you have agreed a purchase, the item(s) is then forwarded out to an agreed delivery point, to maintain the integrity of the Outfit.

It may be that the Outfit is split into various cruising areas (folios), such as East and West Mediterranean, Atlantic Crossing, Caribbean etc. To keep the associated work as minimal as possible on the bridge, we will store any non-operational part of the outfit free of charge, and then return it at your timed request, completely up to date and ready to use. A quotation regarding the updating of the folio will be supplied at the time.
