“The charter industry is affected at all levels by the uncertainties of COVID-19,” says Saxon. “Yacht owners are obligated to provide a safe charter yacht environment. In addition, the owner and crew also have requirements. They need to know that charter guests are not carrying the virus with them when they come aboard. Vikand has the solutions to provide a sense of security and well-being for all parties in meeting these shared obligations.” vikand.com
