Before the storm anxiety is only natural when your yacht is in the path of a major storm, but, with B&G’s two-pronged approach to storm prep, you’ll know that everything that should be done to protect your yacht, is taken care of.
“Make the >hurricane< plan. Execute the >hurricane< plan."
We recognize that each boat is unique, as is any location our clients might choose to weather their storm season, and so we take great care in developing every one of our storm plans. Our personalized storm plans are not just for submitting to your insurance company, they are our roadmap when preparing your boat for bad weather.
Regardless of whether there will be work done aboard your boat during storm season, we start our preparations early ensuring the complete plan is actioned before the first storm approaches. We monitor your boat throughout the storm, so long as it is safe to do so, and issue post-storm status reports as soon as the worst weather breaks.
