I can recommend Yachtdoc as competent engineers with thorough knowledge. Their pro-active attitude, sober demeanour and eagerness to stay updated and acquire new knowledge, make them a valuable contractor.
They are presently formulating proposals for the implementation and improvement/upgrade of (the structure of) AVIT-systems during our planned major refit. I am very satisfied with the clarity and transparency he is able to present the pro’s and contra’s for specific choices of structural modifications and stability & redundancy of the vessels systems.
Having 10 years of yacht experience I have found them to be by far the most advanced and knowledgeable IT Technician / Engineer I have dealt with. His skills with our onboard systems such as Kerio, Cisco, Vsat and Kaleidescape are unquestionable and his ability to share his knowledge is much appreciated by all senior roles within the Vessel.
On numerous occasions, we have had urgent requests with system failures and faults within the network. They would always respond to my requests day, night or even while on holidays. As he always replies “I’m only a phone call away if you need me”.
"Organizing our upcoming AV refit was a bit of a tall order to ask for us. We didn’t know where to begin or what questions to ask the AV companies. An old colleague of mine, recommended to us Yachtdoc, so we contacted them. They assisted to go through the scope quotations and they answered all our questions, clearly in plain English. Yachtdoc provided us with everything we needed to know and more. It was easy to follow through with a clear decision. We would definitely hire them again and highly recommend them."
"They have shown excellent project planning abilities and has been instrumental in keeping our major AV/IT refit moving in the right direction. They have an excellent work ethic in a difficult managerial environment. They are efficient and dependable and has a pleasant personality. I have no hesitation in recommending them as an AV/IT specialists."
"Their work ethic and character are of the highest order. During my time working with them, everything ran smoothly and their communication and coordination skills proved themselves many times. They have a keen mind and is able to consider matters in a clear and concise fashion. He has a calm, and friendly manner and both crew and management alike found him easy to get on with."
"Before our shipyard I was recommended by a friend to use Yachtdoc, to help assist improve our AV system …
They had some great ideas that he shared with management. Thankfully they listened to him, and it was a wise decision from them. Ryan from Yachtdoc is a calm and logical methodical manager that truly connected with the team during our refit. I can’t speak highly enough of Yachtdoc.
Yachtdoc sat down with us to breakdown all of the technical jargon in the quotations and explained it in plain English. He was totally clear about what we needed to achieve. And gave us the confidence to engage with a particular integrator to work with, this worked out so well. We asked Yachtdoc to take control and oversee the entire AV project. This was a great decision as he was the glue for the project. Unlike other project managers, I have worked with before there were no personality clashes as he is such an easy guy to work with who goes the extra mile."
