YES @ Work

Yacht Escort Ships, Intl., managed by it principals, Captain Stan and Mary Jane Antrim, remains as the only company to deliver fully Classed yacht support vessels and shadow boats. Having conceived of the shadow boat conversion concept in 2003 for the owner of Lady Lola, Stan and Mary Jane are currently (as of November 2007) in the midst of completing deliveries number 4, 5 and 6, as detailed below. All three of the projects are undergoing refit and conversion in Seattle, Washington. Vital to the integrity and quality of the YES product is the engineering expertise of the YES Engineer, Mr. Jeff Perry. Jeff is a licensed professional yacht Chief Engineer and served as the Quality Assurance supervisor for Delta Marine in Seattle for the 2 years prior to joining YES. Perry's engineering acumen coupled with the unparalleled naval architecture support of Boris Kirilloff (www.kirilloff.com), provide our clients with the counsel and support of a professional staff unmatched in marine knowledge and operational experience in the yachting industry.
