Traditionally we have always worked as representatives of the clients but recently we started to get good feedback from the yards where we have managed projects. Yard representatives have begun to realise the benefit of a project management service.
(PRWEB UK) 30 November 2011
The new service will be provided by the company’s experienced technical services team, and will give shipyard directors an independent quality control management service to help them improve their organisation and communication with a yacht owner’s team.
There are numerous advantages of the new service:
- Shipyards will incur fewer costly changes as a result of the improved project management and a reduction in errors
- The build stays on schedule
- There is less warranty work to be fulfilled
- As an independent company, well-connected within the industry, Sea-Alliance Group is also able to suggest contractors and suppliers, and to advise on the latest technologies and methods of construction, as a result of extensive experience gained from working on many different boat builds in locations around the world.
As shipyards around the world increasingly use subcontractors to complete a project, the benefits of an independent project manager/surveyor, overlooking all aspects of the work and managing these, has become more apparent.
Pino di Mora, Technical Services Manger at Sea-Alliance Group, said: “Traditionally we have always worked as representatives of the clients but recently we started to get good feedback from the yards where we have managed projects, and yard representatives have begun to realise the benefit of a comprehensive project management service. We help the yards by supervising and controlling the subcontractors, and representatives of many shipyards have been very enthusiastic about the concept of us working directly for them.”
Highlighting the benefits of the service, Pino continued: “We can offer them fresh perspective on the new builds and refits and assist them greatly with their quality control, which saves time and money.”
Sea-Alliance Group is believed to be one of the only companies offering such a comprehensive project management service for the industry. As a company which can offer an independent perspective and report directly to the Yard’s Director, there is a distinct advantage to using them - a small customer-focussed team - rather than an in-house project manager.

About Sea-Alliance Group
Sea-Alliance Group provides services in the following areas:
Yacht sales and purchase
SAG helps clients by supplying a broad range of solutions for building, purchasing and selling premium yachts worldwide and has several dealerships for a number of prestigious international brands, including Sunseeker, Comar and Sessa Marine shipyards. Not only selling yachts from its own portfolio, SAG has also, when required, designed and built yachts with support from shipyards that include Moonen, Jongert, Fitzroy, Shipman, Sunreef and Baglietto.
With access to top quality charter yachts around the world, SAG will find the perfect yacht to suit an individual’s needs, whether a traditional sailing yacht or high-performance motor yacht, a jet-set lifestyle cruise, a relaxed and pampered experience.
SAG is a specialist in custom and semi-custom yacht design, and its project managers have extensive knowledge of, and close relationships with, naval architects, designers, shipyards, engineering and contractors. A dedicated on-site project manager is assigned to each construction and because the smallest issue can have far-reaching effects on the yacht’s cost, quality and performance, SAG closely monitors every stage of the build process.
SAG’s yacht management division deals with every aspect of a yacht’s systems, logistics, crew and finance. This is a service which is provided for yachts of all sizes, whether private or commercial. The company can also supervise the construction of a number of yachts, and this currently includes several mega yachts being built by leading European shipyards.
Marinas and marine projects
SAG acts as a consultant for the construction of marinas, as well as seafront tourist and real estate projects. Providing a full range of commercial/professional services such as feasibility studies, consultancy, business and marketing plans, the team can offer full marina management services and can also restructure existing marinas to meet with current and future needs.
SAG’s Technical Services department deals with issues including safety management systems and international safety management (ISM) issues. Also its team liaises with suppliers, collecting quotations from various yards for any maintenance work that needs to be done on a vessel, deals with re-painting, engine room works, any structural modifications to the boats, audio visual systems updates, and liaises with the Captain of the boat to ensure the vessel is maintained to the highest standards.
SAG offers a Crew Recruitment service which uses its professional contacts and experience of crew recruitment place to place individuals, including captains, deck hands, service staff, chefs and yacht engineers, into the most suitable role for them based on their preferences, personalities and aspirations.
