    New Construction Supervision

    We have extensive experience in contract specifications, site supervision, trials and warranty follow-up for mega-yachts, LNG tankers, containerships, MODUs, and more.

    We have overseen new-build projects for large commercial mega yachts in some of the finest and most well renowned European yards.


    Maintenance & Repair Supervision

    It's all about process control. We can help you prepare specifications for the shipyard, identify competent repair facilities and work with those facilities to get your vessel back into service.

    Damage repair surveys

    Even with the best crew, vessels can have a mishap. Our surveyors have decades of experience at their disposal in order to determine the extent of the damage, and make recommendations for repair.

    With thousands of surveys conducted, you can be assured that you're in good hands.

    Pre purchase surveys

    Buying a new yacht or ship? Our surveyors and team of experts know the hull, machinery, plumbing, AV systems, and navigation equipment like the back of their hand. Aereon can assist you in determining whether or not the yacht is the right one for you.

    Whether it is full oversight of a new build project, assistance with a re-fit or modification, or damage incurred to your yacht, our in-house Professional Engineers are an integral and invaluable resource. They are able to use their expertise, 3D mapping programs, GHS modeling programs, and more in order to provide guidance that only Aereon can. This saves the Owner both time, and money.

  • Regulatory Compliance

    Sure, every management company ‘knows’ regulatory compliance, just like every accountant knows how to file taxes. Unfortunately, it doesn’t always mean that they are providing you with the most competent service. As long-term employees of class societies and flag administrations, we have insight that others simply do not.

    Our Principals have worked as Class Surveyors for major Classification Societies, and Flag State Inspectors for some of the largest and most respected Registries in the world. This results in regulatory expertise that you will be hard pressed to find anywhere else.

    Class and Flag

    Compliance issues can be a huge nightmare for vessels, but they don’t have to be. Allow us to help you, no matter the hurdle. Aereon can take the stormiest situations and turn them into smooth sailing.

    If you’re looking to make changes, such as becoming a commercially compliant yacht, we can carry out a gap analysis, identify necessary upgrades to comply with SOLAS, Load Line, MARPOL, MLC, USCG, MCA, Marshall Islands, or classification society requirements and supervise the modification work.

    Our in-house engineers can even perform the required tests, such as stability/incline tests.

    Port State Detention / Deficiencies

    In a world with ever increasing regulation, Port State Control, such as the Paris MoU in Europe or the USCG in the US are becoming more powerful and making detentions and deficiencies a way of life for many vessel owners.

    We can help you to successfully navigate through these issues and get your vessel back on track.

    Registration

    Are you looking to register a new yacht, or make a change from your existing registry? We can not only help you in choosing which flag is right for you, but help you complete the vessel registration, including corporate registrations.
