There is no cleaning or maintenance included in caretaking checks, we recommend getting a mechanic to check our your engines before departure and have them serviced as required, especially if you intend on leaving your vessel unattended for more than six months.

If any cleaning is required while you are absent, like cleaning of mould on ceilings or bird mess on decks, we can take care of it for you with your permission.
