We’ve all heard of owners’ representatives in the superyacht sector, but what exactly does this person do? And, do you need one? Our editor, Diane M. Byrne, discusses the details in this episode of our podcast series Megayacht News Radio with Peter Wilson (above right), co-founder of MCM Newport. He has taken on the task with a variety of owners over the years, with one of his current clients being the owner of the Feadship Najiba.
In this podcast, Peter Wilson discusses the answers to several important questions, such as:
Does an owner need a formal owner’s representative?
Is the role the same as that of a project manager?
What criteria should an owner use to select a project manager?
At one point should an owner bring in this type of specialist consultant?
Furthermore, Wilson discusses what it’s been like working with the owner of Najiba, including how the two came to be introduced.
