has allowed us to develop
NautaCare, a unique
program that is designed to
assist busy owners in
monitoring the condition,
security and maintenance
requirements of their vessel.
What is NautaCare and How Does It Work?
NautaCare is designed around the needs and time pressures of
the boat owner and alleviates the work and worry in owning a
Most modern vessels have many complicated systems designed
for their owner's safety, comfort and enjoyment - each with
their own particular requirements for monitoring and
maintenance. Our trained staff will relieve you of the burden of
inspecting vital systems by using a systematic list of
inspections performed on a quarterly basis.
Your customized NautaCare program will be designed to:
* Reduce downtime due to unexpected failures
*Save money by helping to reduce costly repairs
*Reduce your anxiety about keeping up with complicated
and warranty requirements
*Allow you to enjoy your vessel while we worry about keeping
it in top operating condition
Who is this for?
NautaCare is a service invaluable to owners of private yachts,
commercial craft and even small fishing boats. We service any
sail, motor or electrical boats from 18'-70'.
What does the inspection cover?
Each inspection is unique to your vessel's needs and equipment. Our comprehensive equipment
checklist covers the exterior, safety equipment, electronics, pumps, plumbing, engine, dinghy and
any additional accessories or systems requiring monitoring or maintenance.
How much does it cost?
Depending on equipment, accessories, size of the vessel and any special requests from the owner,
the cost of each inspection ranges from $100-$500. For example:
*50' twin diesel engine with one generator & typical equipment/accessories would range from
*40' sailboat single engine with typical equipment and accessories would range between $125-$200
*18' electric cruiser with typical equipment and accessories would cost $100
One of our technicians will meet with you aboard your vessel, free of charge, to design a
comprehensive inspection checklist that meets your individual needs. At that time, they will also
review costs and create an inspection schedule that works for you and your lifestyle.
