Whether you are new to the industry or have a large amount of qualifications and experience, anyone can potentially become a superyacht engineer, there are courses that range from beginner to expert.
Have a troubleshooting problem? Our blog contains a wealth of knowledge…
Two simple questions:
How do we best represent variable ‘process’ values on board a superyacht?
And how to get that signal safely from one end of the vessel to the other?
Or, why do we pay for AC power in kVA rather than in kilo Watts?
Uninterruptible Power Supplies (UPS) can appear in many places around a superyacht.
Why do relay and other switching contacts seem to wear out faster than expected? This basic problem has an explanation that can often be reduced down to one word – inductance.
Engineering requirements on superyachts are almost limitless. Superyacht engineers need to have an extensive skill set for their day to day tasks, but this also gives many engineers great career prospects as they work their way up the ladder.
An engineering job on a superyacht can be a challenging but rewarding career. Many people know the perks of being a ‘yachtie’ – from amazing travel opportunities to the chance to make friends for life… but why would you choose to fulfil the engineer position on a superyacht?
I’ve noticed that the common term ‘RMS’ causes confusion, fear and doubt in some superyacht engineers, when talking about electrical measurements, so we’re taking a look in more detail.
Over recent years, we’ve increasingly seen a shift from full time positions to rotational roles throughout the superyacht world, including superyacht engineering jobs.
There’s basically two methods I use to assess VRLA batteries condition; one is fast and easy, the second is slower but gives you valuable data.
