“The one to one service that they provide is superb and a nice move for yacht management. A dedicated management team for each yacht provides a bespoke ‘immediate response’ service rather than a team looking after 10, 12 or 15 or more yachts. With Divergent Yachting the client, and myself as the Captain gets what they are paying for… A management team totally focussed on one yacht”.

David arrived on scene as Head of Compliance as our DPA / CSO. He immediately set to task in ensuring we were fully compliant in all aspects of management on board and ashore. His professionalism is second to none and he proved this by expediting the process for us in the later stages of our build. We obviously proved this by sailing from the shipyard in a fully compliant state for all societies i.e. Cayman Islands and Lloyds etc.

I have had the pleasure of working with David during his time as DPA/CSO with the Yacht Management Company. David has been an excellent DPA. His Knowledge in this area is second to none. I worked closely with David's managed yachts and every time his yacht captains have praised his character and ability to get the job done. - Tom Dakin - Consultant
``They have been a pleasure to work with – organized and responsive with detailed knowledge of the implementation and administration of ISM and ISPS. The accounting team ensure payments are made on time, whilst there is a clear communication channel between the accounts department and the yacht. With clear reporting each month and accounts available for the Client to view online whenever they wish. This is the function that keeps the Client happy.``- Captain - Chris Gartner - S/Y Black Pearl.
``Late yesterday afternoon we had a visit from the local Spanish Customs marine unit for an inspection of our paperwork. Items that they looked at are: Passports, Crew list, Insurance, Certificate of Registry, Captain’s Letter of Authority, Captain’s contract. They then started asking for fuel receipts and marina receipts from the past year. At this point I realised what they were really after and let them know we were VAT paid and handed them the VAT paid certificate. They then promptly departed. It was a quick and pleasant interaction that was very successful because of the organisation of the certs and our paperwork. Thank you both for playing a critical role in having all of this in order.``- Captain - Justin Christou
``I first had the opportunity to work with Divergent Yachting during the build and commissioning of the SY Black Pearl. The SY Black Pearl is an innovative, cutting edge giga-yacht and the project management was complex. Derek Munro and his team were hands-on and detailed oriented - always one step ahead of the multitude of challenges that present in completing a new-build``- Captain - Chris Gartner - S/Y Black Pearl.
