We are delighted to announce a new partnership agreement with Da Gama Maritime (DGM).
The agreement further complements our distinctive group of established business partners offering a range of high quality services in support of the superyacht sector.
Da Gama Maritime is run by experienced mariners at the forefront of advancements in navigation management and vessel safety who recognise the significant undertaking required by crew to meet and maintain compliance with all current and expected legislation. DGM supports professional mariners in the safety of navigation by maintaining compliant navigation outfits and training crew on board in fire fighting drills, procedures and exercises.
Steve Monk, Managing Director at DGM, said, “This company was established to enhance the safety of those who work at sea through the highest professional standards in navigation and fire fighting. We are therefore delighted to have been recognised for these skills by WSA and to now collaborate with the Academy as their business partner. As you would expect and the feedback has shown, considerably more effective results can be achieved training an entire crew on board their own vessel. We aim to continually strive to promote their skills and professionalism through this new working relationship that will benefit both parties, and ultimately all those on board.
Lars Lippuner, Business Development Manager for WSA, said, “We have always had a tremendous respect for Steve’s work especially in the area of on board fire training. We are looking forward to our collaboration taking training to new levels. Mandatory safety training is only small element of developing the necessary skills for crew to run a safe and efficient yacht at the highest levels. In our opinion on board training that involves exercises with the entire crew is invaluable.
“We are convinced that many yachts will benefit from the combined expertise,” he continued.
