About Vortec

"When we bought our Oyster 56 we considered a skipper but valued our privacy and space. We were introduced to Ross of Vortec Marine Ltd who has provided the ideal answer. A personal service to ensure that the boat is ready each time we go to use her along with all the regular maintenance issues and any extra works we require. Everything is done to the same standard as having a full time crew without the added issues they bring."

About Vortec

Vortec Marine Ltd was founded in August 2006 by Ross Collingwood.

The company comprises of Vortec Marine Training and Vortec Marine Ltd.

Vortec Marine Ltd.

Vortec Marine Ltd is a widely respected, authorised yacht service and repair centre for Oyster and Swan Yachts.

Providing yacht owners with peace of mind, Vortec Marine staff will fly to any location in Europe to undertake maintenance, from engine servicing to boat repairs or rig checks. Not only does this save yacht owners the stress of finding trustworthy service agents in each new port, but it ensures that an Oyster maintenance log is kept up to date and validates the Oyster Warranty.

Vortec Marine Ltd records all checks and maintenance work undertaken on a vessel in a database, providing the vessel with a full Professional Service History. With a car, a full service history increases re-sale value, yachts are considerably more expensive and complex and it makes sense that your yacht should have a full service history to maintain its value as well as for safety reasons.  

Vortec offer comprehensive yacht services from a dedicated service bay at Endeavour Quay, Portsmouth.
