Shipping consultancy opens yacht division


LOC Group, a London-based international marine and engineering consultancy and survey company for the shipping and offshore energy industries, has launched a yacht service division.

While LOC has provided ad hoc yacht services such as surveys, transport, and new build dispute mediation, the new yacht division formalizes these services and expands their range, Deputy Chairman Andrew Squire said in a company statement.

The yacht service division is led by Shipping Technical Director Edward Wollaston, who has experience supervising yacht build and design, according to the company.

The company also can help with operational issues ranging from ballast water management to bunkers, vibration analysis and planned maintenance, according to Wollaston. For more information, visit
