Yacht Audits

A yacht audit comprehensively evaluates a yacht's compliance with industry standards, regulations, and best practices. The audit is typically conducted by an independent auditor knowledgeable in yacht construction, operation, and regulatory compliance.


Yacht audits are often required for compliance with regulations, such as the International Safety Management Code (ISM Code), or to ensure compliance with industry standards and best practices. The audit may include evaluating the yacht's safety management system, documentation, operational procedures, maintenance and repair procedures, and crew training.


During a yacht audit, the auditor will review documentation and conduct interviews with the crew and management to understand the yacht's operations and compliance with regulations and standards. The auditor may also conduct visual inspections and tests of various systems and components to verify compliance and identify deficiencies.

After the audit is complete, the auditor will provide a detailed report outlining any deficiencies found and recommendations for corrective actions. The owner or operator can use the report to address deficiencies and ensure compliance with regulations and industry standards.


Our goal is to provide our clients with the information they need to make informed decisions about their yacht and ensure their vessel is seaworthy, safe, and compliant with all applicable regulations.


At VALENCIA Marine Services SLU, our team of qualified and experienced auditors is dedicated to providing the highest quality service to our clients.

ISM Code Compliance 

At VALENCIA Marine Services SLU, we offer ISM Code audits for yachts of all sizes. Our experienced surveyors are fully trained and accredited to conduct audits in accordance with the International Safety Management (ISM) Code and other relevant regulations and requirements.
