M/Y Mangusta (131 ft. Overmarine)
As Master of the 40m new build Motor Yacht Mangusta, It is my pleasure to be writing this letter of commendation for Mr Pete Grocock. Pete came recommended to us through a partner yacht fleet program, while based in Fiji and seeking a world-class shipyard in the South Pacific to carry out extensive repair & refit works as well as a 5 year survey. The shipyard lived up to our expectations, as did Pete’s involvement.
Our tenure at GCCM lasted 4 months, from July to Oct 2021. Our extensive job list included: Fresh & black tanks re-coating, class approved soft patch installation in transom, generator re-builds, main engine half-life overhauls, Rolls Royce jet drive overhaul, electrical design and overhauls, paint repairs, interior repairs, deck repairs, tender refits, and 5 year class survey items.
We required a strong project manager to keep on top of this vast list and get the right teams on the job. Pete’s drive & energy, dynamic nature, and positive contractor relations ensured maximum results. He always went above & beyond for us as a client. No request was ever in doubt, and no problem was ever too large. Pete always got the job done with positivity and drive. We depart GCCM on a high note, and would not hesitate to enlist Pete again on future projects.
