Yacht Management & Concierge Services

45° North Yacht Management is the only company in the area to offer comprehensive, custom services for managing your watercraft.

Company founder, Justin Bassett, has been in the marine industry for more than 20 years, with a list of accomplishments ranging from number one salesperson in the world for Tiara Yachts and several top level Hatteras Yachts sales and customer service awards to being part of the sailing team that broke the course record for the Middle Sea Race around the island of Sicily. He is also a USCG 100-ton licensed captain, bringing his knowledge and years of training to every customer at 45° North.

Understanding the balance between being budget-conscious and investment-wise, designing personalized plans for boats of all sizes and varieties– with a level of customer service that can’t be exceeded– is what 45° North was created to do.

This service includes everything from pulling off and stowing all seat covers, putting on stowed cushions, and flag placement, to systems and fuel checks (with refuel service if necessary), bug removal, requested provisioning and more. Once your time on the water is done, we’ll head back to your vessel to button it up.

You make memories. We’ll take care of the rest.
