Superyacht Spring in full Swing

Spring is one of our favourite seasons here at C-Quip. The superyacht industry really starts to buzz with the dawn of a new Med season, and we are fortunate enough to be involved in some great projects at the moment from new builds almost ready for launch, some challenging refit projects, plus lots of new equipment and custom enquiries as the crew's dust off their wish lists for the season ahead.

Our sales team headed up by Daniel Barnard also start to dust off their travel cases and passports as requests come in for sales meetings and it is always great to get back out onto the docks as the yachts start to arrive back to their favoured Mediterranean bases. Please do drop Daniel an email or make a call if you have a hankering for that new carbon swim ladder or you are looking to upgrade those tired and troublesome fenders for the finest tender fenders on the market – by C-Quip of course.
And who could forget the only carbon fibre LR certified pilot ladder specifically aimed at Superyachts with superior levels of safety for pilots and crew, not to mention game changing storage options.
It is always great to reconnect with existing clients and friends and of course welcome new clients to the C-Quip experience. We have had some great feedback on our products, so we would like to take this opportunity to share the below testimonials.

The ladder is superb. The difference from an aesthetic perspective is enormous and the reduction in weight and storage size compared to the standard-issue pilot ladder has resulted in our pilot boarding and disembarkation operations being safer and slicker. The ordering process was very good; from inception and design to sign off and delivery took around 8 weeks which was less than we expected. We were impressed with the clear communication from C-Quip throughout the process and equally as impressed with the way it arrived – solid protection for transit and with comprehensive user instructions including the relevant SOLAS approval certification which we are able to present to Flag and Port state control if required.
