Boat Yard Services, Inc. is the leading independent yacht management company offering unparalleled services to international clientele worldwide. Assisted by a versatile multi-lingual team, our company’s founder, Captain Jason Smith, bring close to 50 years hands-on yachting experience to help run each yacht safely and efficiently.

We are available 24/7 across the globe to provide the essential support that makes the whole yachting experience a success. We offer a full range of yacht management services including project management for new builds or refits, routine and emergency technical and operational support, safety and security, financial administration, charter management, crew payroll administration and crew selection and recruitment.

Whether the yacht is for private or commercial use or indeed a combination of both; whether you are an owner, captain or an industry professional looking for independent unbiased support and assistance, Boat Yard Services has a tailor-made solution for you. What is Yacht Management? Running a yacht is like running any business. In fact, a yacht is like a small luxury hotel – but one that keeps moving! Behind the scenes everything needs to run like clockwork – safety and security procedures, maintenance issues routinely addressed, accounts and cash flow handled, crew properly employed and managed and all general operations taken care of. All this with limited crew and with guests to look after.

Using professional yacht managers, such as Boat Yard Services, as part of your team, all these details can be taken care of saving time and money and making the whole yachting experience more enjoyable. At Boat Yard Services, we truly believe that every yacht, owner and captain can benefit from yacht management. The question is not “do I need yacht management?” but “which services offer the best solutions for my needs?”.

Professional Relationships: Whether you are a broker or a fellow industry professional, we can offer a unique level of independent support to ensure that your client is completely satisfied with their yachting experience. Being an independent company, at Boat Yard Services, we work with some of the best. We are not brokers, lawyers, designers, insurers or tax advisors but we are diligent yacht managers and we can offer invaluable support and assistance whatever your requirements.

The success of Boat Yard Services is based very much on working in harmony with our industry colleagues. We are very proud of our professional relationships.

Reliable and Concientious!

Jason Smith and Boatyard Services have been taking care of the maintenance and service of my boat "Too Bad Too Sad" for the past 5 years. Having know Jason in the past, I knew he and his team would be reliable and conscientious and they have proven to be all of that. I am quite satisfied with their services and attention they have provided me over the years. As a result, "Too Bad Too Sad" runs and looks as good as the day she was delivered!

We have been using the services of Captain Jason Smith and Boatyard Services for the last eight years. They have provided both cosmetic and mechanical upkeep and maintenance on a Hinckley Talaria as well as a smaller Boston Whaler. These services, their attention to detail and their professionalism have all been of the highest standards. Additionally, we have used their captain services many times on evening cruises and trips to the Bahamas. Their expertise in captaining and providing service to us and our guests has also been exemplary. I'm not sure what we would do if it weren't for Jason!

I have been a customer of Boat Yard Services for many years. I have been delighted with their attention to detail and care of my vessels. Captain Jason and his crew have been with me through my first 38’ Little Harbor and for two Hinckley upgrades. I appreciate the Captain services they provide to assist me with numerous trips to the Bahamas, the Florida Keys and other favorite vacation spots. The team at Boat Yard Services love what they do and it shows in their work..
