Job description

This position is challenging, diverse and therefore more than just planning service work. In this role, you will organize, supervise and direct service projects from start to finish. These projects require a lot of attention because there are various stakeholders and generally the job must be performed and completed under a great deal of time pressure. This is because they are usually short, fast-paced and sometimes cannot be planned in advance. The urgency is often high and saying "no" is something we prefer not to do.

Your clients are the captain, the chief engineer or an international service yard. Service work is scheduled both proactively and by the client. You therefore maintain active contact with the various clients, but also seek advice from your project team colleagues. You regularly travel abroad to take on service assignments or to coordinate how the customer can be best served.

The service assignments you coordinate are carried out on the Yacht Equipment delivered and installed by us on the super yachts. The yacht equipment is almost always customized. No yacht, and therefore no product is the same. As an indication, a service assignment can consist of sending a part up to providing new hinges and locks to all doors and hatches on the yacht.

Your duties:

  • Make quotations and pre-calculations for the maintenance and repair work, spare parts and materials to be delivered;
  • Coordinate the work of the mechanics in cooperation with your direct colleagues, supervisor, Head of Production and project team;
  • Arrange the materials necessary for an assignment and ensure that they reach the site;
  • Take care of the proper travel documents;
  • You arrange the shipment of spare parts;
  • Reporting and costing in order to achieve correct financial settlement;
  • Handle and assess warranty reports in consultation with relevant departments, such as project management and engineering. 

The Yacht Services department consists of 6 coordinators. You report to the Manager Yacht Services.


You are someone with good project management skills and mechanical engineering experience, so keeping an overview and monitoring is your quality. Colleagues enjoy working with you and the customer knows that the job is in good hands. In addition, you recognize yourself as someone who is happy with multi-tasking, can cope well with work pressure and is a pleasant colleague. You like independence, but know how to choose and determine the moments when consultation and adjustments are necessary. That is why we are looking for an excellent communicator (in both Dutch and English), because that is how you make the difference.


A job with a lot of responsibility, varied work every day and a international outlook. We offer you a full-time job with a good salary, depending on your knowledge and experience. We also offer room for personal development and all this comes with appropriate primary and secondary benefits such as:

  • A full-time job (40 hours per week) in an inspiring superyacht work environment;
  • Market-based salary;
  • Good travel reimbursement without mileage limitation;
  • Pension scheme;.
