WISTREAM YACHTING is a company managing yachts & mega-yachts and the result of a joint venture between a recognized group in industrial and naval projects management (merchant and military), and a committee consisting of superintendents and experts with a strong involvement in yachting.

WISTREAM proposes a wide range of maritime services, targeting the owners or managers of yachts. These services include technical management, safety management, certification and compliance, or even the follow-up of new constructions or large refit projects.

WISTREAM through its yacht management service implements and ensures a management system that effectively deals with management, and human resources, but also with methods and equipment.

In addition, WISTREAM develops its own processes and management tools. Thus, “Cindy Naval”, a maintenance follow-up software or the “ship’s health record book” allow knowing the status and the value of the registered yachts in real time.

WISTREAM has conceived an industrial organization based on the management methods used by civilian and military ship-owners, who rely on an ongoing quest for optimisation by using the industrial means that are best adapted for the purpose of maintaining the ships to their highest level of availability for the entire length of their life cycle.

The expertise of each of the associates of WISTREAM, of which some have more than 25 years of maritime experience as captain or chief engineer, is entirely dedicated to the technical and administrative management of boats. Thus they guarantee a genuine support to the crews to increase their availability for their commercial tasks.

In the function as project manager, WISTREAM directs its services towards a controlled reduction of maintenance costs without actually calling into question safety, or classification or flag requirements.

Thanks to the relationships of trust developed over time with its numerous international partners, WISTREAM guarantees services of the highest quality.
