Quality Assurance

Quality and safety are two key factors when looking at any supplier or business partner. Britannia prides itself in providing the highest quality of service and doing so in a safe and professional manner.

ISO9001 Approved

Like any industry, some operators follow best practice and some don’t. We are always happy to demonstrate that we do and to provide documented evidence when required. We are also ISO9001 compliant, which means we have been audited and verified.

Within the sailing industry there are a number of small companies who do not have the insurance or legal compliance documents to actually charter their boats on a commercial basis. For peace of mind, you should ensure any marine event provider has the appropriate cover.

EVENT INSURANCE

Britannia is fully insured as an event management company, with comprehensive public liability and employer’s liability insurance. We are happy to provide a copy of the policy on request.

Any company that offers you an event, including the organisation of racing, booking berths, providing catering etc. should have this sort of policy in place.

COMMERCIAL YACHT INSURANCE

All our boats are fully MCA coded (to Category 2), compliant will all safety legislation and insured for commercial charter (not just pleasure sailing). Copies of boat insurance documents are always available for inspection.

RISK ASSESSMENTS

We have a comprehensive risk assessment document for our boats. We can also provide risk assessment information for other elements of an event, such as for the marina that your event will start and finish in. Please contact us if you would like a copy of any of these documents.

QUALIFIED SKIPPERS

Our skippers are all qualified to at least the level of Commercially Endorsed RYA/MCA Yachtmaster. Many of them are also RYA instructors or Ocean Masters.

It is not just qualifications that are important. Our skippers are used to working in a corporate environment and we can provide just the right sort of skipper for your requirements, be that a race skipper who can help develop an experienced teams abilities, or a teaching skipper to train up an inexperienced or novice crew into a team for a regatta, or simply a skipper to go out cruising for the day and entertaining clients.
