Still doing business as "The Yacht and Charter Service Company" and moving to our new premises in Tecom along with our Training Institute location at Dubai Creek Marina "The Yacht and Charter Service Company" have hit the ground running in 2014.

"The financial crash is over, business is booming and we at "The Yacht and Charter Service Company" are primed for an excellent future" says Captain Stephen Corbett, Business Development Director of the Company. Right from the start our intent is on raising the industry standards in service, reliability and innovative programs in the Middle East to a whole level.

With a rapidly expanding marine environment in the UAE and Gulf region we see the need for an honest, aggressive and reliable operator to cater for this increase in the market. Combined with a core team of 26 professionals totalling over 85 years marine experience, we are extremely excited about the future of this talented and successful company.

Based around a full pre-post service management company, we have introduced and supported the "Customer, We Care" policy. Based in the heart of the Marina Zones at Tecom and Dubai Creek Marina, we are in the centre of all the action.

"The Yacht and Charter Service Company" is a proud member of the A.Y.S.S (Association of Yacht Support Services) and is the founding member in the Middle East. Handling over 85% of all "Foreign Flag" yachts entering the Gulf Region, we are the leader in this dynamic breed of Super and mega Yachts seeking service and professionalism. We have a strict code of conduct in the Association and have been in great standing for over 7 years.

Our management programs for all forms of yachts are priced competitively and our service engineers will make sure your yachts are always kept in complete working order. Our crew are licensed to deliver boats anywhere in the GCC (Gulf Cooperation Council) and our crewing division can place candidates in all positions from captain to hostess. Working closely with 3rd party operators, "The Yacht and Charter Service Company" offers services such as Yacht Insurance, Yacht Surveys and Yacht Security. These agencies are all bonded and fully licensed. Our Port Agency services are the best in the Middle East; provisioning, fuel bunkering, procurement, meet and greet guests and crew liaison is our specialty.

"JLS Yacht Training Institute" is a fully recognized R.Y.A (Royal Yachting Association) Training Facility and is the leader in Pleasure and Light Commercial marine training in the Middle East.

We understand the workings of the Middle East and have the ability to move ahead with actions that tend to take extended time, we go that extra mile and it shows.

Over all "The Yacht and Charter Service Company" is a "One Stop Shop" for all your marine requirements.

"May the Seas be calm and the breeze be on your back".
