Note from the Chairman
After 12 years being a member of the AYSS, this is my second time as Chairman and it is with great honour I write this in a year where we will celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Association. The AYSS is today a strong and unique partner to the Super yacht Industry and we look forward to many more years to come, together with you, as Captain, as well as with your Crew.
Today the AYSS has 72 members, 3 associated members and belongs to two associations. The members are widely spread out over the Globe, both in well-known areas as well as in remote areas. We are constantly aiming at getting new members and this way link the world together within the Super Yacht Industry in order to have an AYSS member serving you in whatever Port you may visit in the future.
For those of you who are not aware, the AYSS is based on a Code of Conduct which you will find in the back of our Handbook and each member is strictly bound to operate under these guidelines. All members of the AYSS have diligently been evaluated and picked out before entering the association and one of our key goals is to provide you and your Crew with the best support and service in a highly professional manner.
Within the AYSS, I do not only see a great deal of motivation and dedication to the superyacht profession, but also a valuable amount of knowledge and experience which you can benefit from. The AYSS provides a unified front to our clients with great skills and assurance of commitment to service within the industry and I highly recommend you to contact an AYSS agent before going to or being underway to whatever Port / Area in the world.
Obviously, with the number of members within the AYSS, we have access to and are gathering a lot of news and information which is a vital part while cruising. By using an AYSS member, you will not only have an excellent support to the boat and the Crew, but also be able to gain from this information making the trip even more enjoyable for the Owners, Guests and Charter clients.
As Chairman of the AYSS in 2015, I wish you a very successful year and safe cruising.
If you have any questions or concerns you wish to raise, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Anders Nodskov Pedersen
(Chairman of AYSS)
