Motoryacht Oasis (Lürssen 60 meters) employed Nic Clarke of PURE Superyacht Refit Palma as Project Manager on two occasions in 2012 and 2013 for extensive maintenance periods in Mallorca. Amongst the very many maintenance items were the painting of the hull on the first visit and the painting of the superstructure on the second visit. On both occasions a workforce was waiting on the quay to start immediately the moment Oasis arrived, and on both occasions all works were completed on time and to a high standard of satisfaction. Nic and his very able staff make the whole experience work incredibly smoothly including the liaison and coordination with outside parties, as well as the efficient and accurate accounts handling promoting a smooth work flow. Nic himself is a very knowledgeable and thorough person, ideally suited to the task of project management. Nic tolerates no missed schedules or complacent attitude and follows the works intimately from beginning to end. Nic sees the big picture and reports accurately to captains, and ship managers, establishing trust, thus leading decisions to be enacted upon with confidence. I highly recommend Nic and his team at PURE for any large yacht management to any level of maintenance period.

Arian O'Neill, Captain M/Y Oasis

I wanted to take a moment and let you know how impressed I was with the service and assistance I received from your company "Pure Superyacht Refit". Your ability to organize qualified and reliable sub-contractors was excellent as well as the scheduling with the shipyard and correspondece with the Spanish ABS surveyor all combined to make this yard period a success. Completing the entire survey, including repairs and applying fresh anti-fouling in two weeks was nothing short of a miracle! I wil definitely use the services of Pure Superyacht again and will gladly recommend the company to others in the yachting industry. Normally this would have been a very stressful situation and you were able to turn it into a manageable experience with all of the work completed ahead of schedule.

Curtis Cook, Captain M/Y Casino Royale

I trusted Nic, I think that's the biggest key really. When you're getting into this end of the yacht industry you need to understand what you're doing, you need key people working for you. I could look Nic in the face and know he was going to deliver. I would go back there (PURE) any day.

Owner, M/Y Paramour

We have immediately been impressed with the quality and the reactivity of the services on behalf of Nic’s management. Furthermore, all of the current yacht services and materials are available on site. Warm thanks to Nic who did help CMN with a lot of flexibility for the resolution of various warranty works.

Matthieu Koechlin, New Build Manager CMN

I’ve used Nic at PURE for refits in the past and if I want the yacht finished on time and within budget then I won’t hesitate to use him each and every time. Brutally efficient!

Mike Carr, Captain M/Y 777

We have all enjoyed having you onboard. Your dedication as project manager for the yacht was exemplary & appreciated by all. We hope to see you soon.

The Captain & Crew M/Y Kiss the Sky

Using PURE’s unique services gives us the best of both worlds… the security, liability and accountability of a shipyard with the freedom of contractor/craftsmen selection. Combined with independent specialist project management, full accounting services and tax exemption administering, the ‘virtual shipyard’ concept certainly works for us.

Captain 70+ M/Y

Upon completion of the refit Nic presented us with a well documented report of the full scope of works including a full pictorial history plus the accounting and reporting of the expenditure was presented in such a way that it was clear and easy to interpret.

Glen McDonnell, Captain M/Y Project 229

Nic and I worked together on an extended refit, he did an excellent job.

Guy McClave, Captain of M/Y Ronin

I have no hesitation in recommending PURE as a capable and professional organization to oversee and coordinate a refit such as the one we have just completed

Mike Carr, Captain of 777

Initially we visited Palma for warranty works but soon found the potential in addressing numerous other aspects of improvements/reworks all around the yacht that PURE could comfortably manage on our behalf. As we moved further into our yard period it was clearly apparent that Nic Clarke understood all of our requirements in a time/quality/budget aspect and we soon gained an enormous amount of trust in PURE handling our project. The yacht was barely five months old so it had had a good running in phase which allowed us to identify which areas we wished to concentrate on in addition to warranty works. Nic Clarke liaised perfectly between the yacht and the shipyard understanding both parties requirements. The refit project was run between the yacht, the yard and PURE. Bringing in a third party at a time of warranty could be dangerous but again this is testimony to PURE's approach as to how successful the project was. Proof in point was the fact that we returned for a second and third time after successive seasons to continue/complete warranty items as well as major upgrades on equipment. Several steps forward.

Phil Stevens, Captain of M/Y Slipstream

Unquestionably, not only for the project management but equally the advantages of PURE being able to handle in-house Temporary Import Services. However much work PURE have been involved in with other projects I was always satisfied that any call to Nic would become his priority, if ever it was needed in the first place as more often than not Nic stays ahead of the game through a total understanding and great communication.”

Colin Boyle, Captain of M/Y Cloud 9

On behalf of the entire crew, I would like to thank you for your assistance during our stay at STP shipyard in Palma de Mallorca. All of our projects were professionally managed by you and your staff. We look forward to using your services again.

Captain Michael Schueler, M/Y Linda Lou

We have used Nic three times since the boat has been launched and we have an excellent working relation with him and hope to use his services for a long time to come.

Duncan Mclean, Engineer M/Y Sipstream

It is a luxury to use PURE, because usually I would manage a refit myself. Advantage is Nic’s connections make the process quicker and he has time to do research that others do not have time for.

Captain Colin Boyle, M/Y Cloud 9

I have been very impressed by the service you have given me over the winter. The whole TPA/paperwork/customs/accounting process has been very easy and straight forward. I have bombarded you with questions, all of which you have been able to answer and made my life so much easier. I have opened a TPA in the past and the experience this year was very different. Your efficiency outshines your competitors and I will be spreading the word about how good my experience with you has been!

Captain Amy Galloway, S/Y Tenaz

We have concluded that, in general terms, PURE is correctly applying the IPR, regime which permits taking benefit of exemptions both for Customs duties and Value Added Tax (VAT) purposes.

One of world's leading financial advisors - after auditing PURE

Professional, solution providers, co-operative. Great team to work with, always quick to respond to any problem with a solution.

Captain and crew, M/Y Oasis

Clear communication, excellent updated daily accounting. All subcontractors came on quote. It was a pleasure to have a sole point of contact and personal service whilst in STP. It made it an awful lot less stressful for me knowing Nic also had an overview of exactly what was happening onboard. All the PURE team were friendly and helpful, and whilst this wasn't a huge refit, I know a lot of effort was put in behind the scenes, particularly with the carpet from China. Many thanks.

Captain Richard Callaghan, M/Y Deniki

Professional, diligent, knowledgeable, friendly, helpful, multilingual.

Captain Simon Ladbrooke, M/Y Paramour

Nic Clarke - Highly recommend the guy, bags of experience from running yachts and we have visited him 3 times I think and he is all over it! He looked after Cloud 9 and Slipstream with our first winters warranty items and I believe he has completed a big refit on Paramour, another 40+mtr CMN. Very knowledgeable and very much on the owners side re timings and costs, has some excellent ideas during refit.

Captain Phil Stevens, M/Y Slipstream

Excellent. A very professional service, Nic has the right attitude to make any refit a success.

Jeremy Jordan, Chief Engineer M/Y Slipstream
