Getting to know the yacht before you buy
A professional yacht expert sees details that are not immediately spotted by skippers or buyers. Accompanying a surveyor during an inspection can be a true eye-opener.

Shipcenter Modus Marine Lelystad is a full-service yard that meets all nautical needs, ranging from simple engine maintenance to complete refits. Damage, regardless of extent, is expertly repaired.

The company is a market leader in the field of repair and optimisation of rudders and steering systems. A rudder optimised to customer requirements can be delivered in a relatively short time for any type of yacht.
For all your yacht transport requirements
Most shipping companies that transport yachts only carry them as secondary cargo. The main cargo – which could be something as basic as potatoes – is then placed in the hold while the yachts are loaded on deck as an extra. This policy often leads to delays, and loading/offloading can take place in dirty industrial harbours such as Southampton or Genoa. Starclass Yacht Transport is one of very few European companies to move yachts as its main cargo.
