Sunseeker Superyacht Management

STEPHEN PURDEW SPEAKS ABOUT HIS EXPERIENCE OF
SUNSEEKER SUPERYACHT MANAGEMENT.

Stephen Purdew is the owner of Champneys Health Resorts, one of the largest destination health spa groups in the world which employs around 2,000 people.

He bought his Sunseeker Predator 82 in 2006. Having experienced problems recruiting and retaining good crew, he turned to Chris Head at Sunseeker London for advice. Chris recommended Sunseeker Superyacht Management – and Stephen hasn’t looked back since.

“It is, without doubt, one of the best business decisions I’ve made,” says Stephen. “The downside of crew recruitment was beginning to spoil a wonderful experience. Ben Young at Sunseeker Superyacht Management now recruits my crew and I can concentrate on running my business without having to worry about the boat.”

Stephen’s Predator 82 is berthed in Antibes, south of France, during the winter – where it is looked after by Ben and his staff in preparation for the season. Stephen believes the boat is, thanks to Sunseeker Superyacht Management, in peak condition. “The yacht looks better than ever,” says Stephen.

The service has also brought other benefits. “I think that, in looking after the vessel so efficiently, Sunseeker Superyacht Management has actually saved me money,” he adds.

Stephen believes that the service is a fantastic addition to Sunseeker’s excellent range of services. He says: “It really does take customer care to another level.”

“We have just passed our annual Flagstate inspection first time with flying colours! All thanks to a thorough pre-survey audit carried out by Ben Young; I contracted Sunseeker Superyacht Management once the Yacht was in Mexico to help ensure that all Classification & Flagstate related issues are dealt with properly on our behalf. We have enjoyed a very successful relationship with them and I would thoroughly recommend this particular service to any Captain or Owner of a large Sunseeker Motoryacht.”

“Its been a great help to be able to call on the expert services of Sunseeker Superyacht Management from time to time since the launch of The Snapper. The team wrote and developed the Yachts Mini-ISM system which has been working effectively since the Yacht was launched in 2007. Thanks to them we recently carried out a very successful charter for the Louis Vuitton Americas Cup WSTA series during which time they obtained a passenger exemption allowing us to carry upto 30 guests onboard whilst following the race! On behalf of The Snapper I am very happy to reccomend their services.”
