Maintenance and refit

We have worked in the super yacht industry for 20yrs and know how to detail, and the products to be used to maintain such a vessel. When possible we use biodegradable, environmentally friendly cleaning products to protect the local marine environment.

All mechanical engineering and refit maintenance can be managed by WSS, in or out of a shipyard. We have 20yrs experience with vessels up to 60m and 3000gt. No task is too big, we will find a solution. We also source a lot of the harder to find parts ourselves and ship throughout the south pacific. We can provide exterior and interior detailing to the highest standards, wash downs, polishing, varnish, decks etc. basically we care for all aspects of your yacht. We can run a regular checks and cleaning schedule on a basis of as much or little attention you need .ie. a one off/weekly/bi weekly/monthly checks and cleaning.

All aspects of a yachts engineering and components can be tended to. For example: rigging, hydraulics, electrical, sails, engines, generators, watermakers, ac, av, plumbing, fibreglass, paint, varnish, etc.

Cyclone preparedness

We work closely with the local marinas and their cyclone plans are adhered to. We assess how well secured your vessel is, if it meets the marina requirements, and advise on how we can improve on it to best prepare your vessel.

We can help move your vessel into a safe, secure marina and assist with securing the vessel in the event of an approaching cyclone or for the wet season i.e. extra lines, fenders and remove bimini’s, sails etc. We have personally cared for multiple yachts in cat 1-5 cyclones numerous times in the Whitsundays and South Pacific.

We can take before and after photos of your vessel for insurance purposes, storage of yacht spares and sails in our secure storage facility, haul out or pack away of tenders and any loose items.

     As a local 44 metre vessel who travels the pacific and east coast I still found the need for assistance and Dan and his WSYS team were exceptional in assisting  from supplies to setting up fishing charters last minute and supplying expert advice on the local anchorages and weather. I highly recommend using them and will be again on our next visit.

    I just want to say a big thank you for helping us this winter in the Whitsundays. Being new to the area, I was relieved to have your assistance with cruising options and odd jobs requiring local knowledge. You have been very reliable and charge fairly for a prompt and professional service. I hope to be back to Airlie soon and will certainly use you again

    Dan and Jennie at WSYS were of extremely valuable assistance during our time in the Whitsundays. From the sourcing of parts and services, through to seamless collection and delivery of perishables and food products to Hamilton Island, they made our short turn arounds between trips smooth and efficient. Nothing was too much trouble and his local knowledge was a huge help. I highly recommend WSYS for any number of yachting requirements.
