We are an MCA certified company focusing on providing safety and technical support for superyachts. In an increasingly regulated environment we can help you develop and create a safety management system (SMS) that works for you. We offer full ISM, ISPS and MLC for commercial vessels and voluntary ISM for private vessels that recognise the need to follow best practice.
For commercial and private yachts under 500gt we also do a mini ISM following the MCA LY3 code. Putting an effective SMS system in place helps to create good working practices and combined with regular auditing your SMS will be a useful tool.
In partnership with our parent company Burgess Marine we can offer technical support ranging from assistance with refits, dry docks, yacht surveys and project management/superintendency from any of our established bases in the UK, France and Palma.
Superyachts are built to the highest and most exacting standards which in turn is what we aim to provide to our clients.

WHAT SOME OF OUR CLIENTS SAY
An internal training course is provided by Trafalgar Yacht Support to all new joiners and a certificate is issued. This is considered good practice and ensures that all crew are familiar with the SMS and its application on board.
Adam Jackson / MCA Auditor
We as Captain's hate having our work marked. I so often hear management companies being talked about in a derogatory manner by Captains and crew alike, however I have nothing but praise and gratitude for the support and service I received from Nick Jalie and his team at Trafalgar Yacht Support.
Roger Weston / Captain MY Alicia
Burgess Marine understand clearly the requirements of Superyacht Owners, Captains and crew and are not only very quick to respond but also provide detailed quotes, turn work around very quickly, provide excellent levels of service and, above all, are professional and well-priced. We are always happy to refer our yachts to Burgess Marine comfortable in the knowledge that they will be looked after properly.
