COMMISSIONING AND SERVICE TECHNICIAN AT WINDCRAFT
Commissioning yachts to exacting standards is a passion for Team Windcraft’s Ross Turner.
As Commissioning and Service Technician at Windcraft, he handles the commissioning of new yachts and supporting the yacht Service Centre’s daily operations in Sydney. He also travels interstate to oversee commissioning for other Team Windcraft offices.
The process starts during the sale; it includes everything from mounting the keel, rudder and steering systems, to standing the mast and rigging, the final preparations, equipment installation, tests and sea-trials. Ross oversees the build in Europe, and then the logistics of getting the boat to Australia. He then works out customisation requirements with owners, coordinates custom fit outs, optional extras, upgrades and fixtures.
And it doesn’t end there. After the handover, Ross teaches the owners how to use their boat and makes them comfortable so they can do what they desire. He explains further:
“I really enjoy liaising with owners leading up to and following the boat’s arrival in Australia. It’s a very exciting time for prospective owners and Team Windcraft. I work with our network of expert contractors to ensure that when Windcraft hand over a new yacht to our clients, we are confident it is exactly what they want and up to the high specification and high standard they expect”.
