3C Yacht Services, a group of professionals coming together with better ideas for better customer relationships with a commitment to ‘No Surprise Billings’.
We believe a company is less about a name and more about the professionals who take pride in their workmanship. We feel it is important for you to know who is working on your vessel and their level of qualifications including their education and experience. We will provide you with a copy of each professional’s certificates upon request, as well as they can be verified with “Skilled Trades BC”, formerly called ITA-BC.
Know your professional: You contract with a company to look after your vessel, but do you know who is really working on it? Use this tool to verify ANYONE’s trade certification with Skilled Trades BC
This section will introduce the professionals that will be working on your vessel. We encourage you to get to know them – you can chat with them in the web portal, and will quickly understand that our professionals take a high pride in their workmanship, so you can take high pride in your ownership!
