Onboard Sanitation Programme

Yacht Onboard Sanitation

Recent global events have brought hygiene and infection into sharp focus. At Marinevac we have created a four part cleansing solution to ensure your vessel is clean and safe for crew and passengers.

1 Deep
{block_title} onboard sanitation

A deep clean of all surfaces using the most effective equipment and chemicals.

Professional Service Engineers with a knowledge of how to apply themselves within the marine industry will carry out a thorough deep clean and sanitisation including:

  • Galleys/kitchens, hot & cold pantries, cold, dry & freeze stores, walk-in fridges, cooker hoods, ovens and all relevant appliances
  • Tiled or waterproof floorings, shower cabin units, corridors, walls, ceilings
  • Mess rooms, lounges and sleeping accommodation
  • Gymnasiums, spas, leisure facilities
  • Kitchen/galley extract cleaning services

Normal daily cleaning of cooker hoods, kitchens, cold stores and freezers is not enough to remove deeply embedded germicides and bacteria. Stubborn dust nests, fats, insects, fungi and invisible bacteriological contamination accumulate in places you normally cannot reach by standard cleaning alone.

Microorganisms live in every part of the biosphere, some of them are even capable of growing at low temperatures, including those below freezing point. These microorganisms unfortunately are also apparent in everyday life, i.e. refrigerators, stores etc, where they collect as pathogens and contaminate foods.

2 HVAC cleansing & inspection {block_title} onboard sanitation

Keep the environment within your vessel comfortable and clean.

HVAC System Inspection and Cleansing Services

  • Reconditioning of Air Handling Units
  • Kitchen/Galley Extract System Cleansing Service – ICE-Clean Technology
  • Electronic Disinfecting Process
  • Inspection: Robotic Camera, Microbiological, Deposit Thickness and Airborne Micro-Dust Testing options
  • Explosion Safe Video and Endosopic examination
  • TR19 and HTM03-01 Standards
  • Air Technical Adjustments

Clean airducts - why?

To prevent/restrict the concentration/growth of microbiological bacteria, mould and yeast within HVAC systems. Any form of concentration of microbiological contamination in the air can raise the risk of negative influences of people’s health.

To prevent/restrict the concentration/growth of dust particles/pollution levels. E.G. forms of crystalline and carbon materials etc. Again, these forms of pollution can raise the risk of negative influences of people’s health.


A frequent cleansing/inspection program of air ducting internals and air handling systems. We would highly recommend the cleaning of both the inlet and outlet ducts regularly, at least once per year.

Also, we recommend that a disinfection process of the air ducts be implemented two times per year. Maintaining a healthy-low-risk environment is paramount in the influences of people’s health.

Additionally, the cleansing programs should prolong the lifespan of air handling systems as well as assisting in the maintaining of the internal appearance of the building/vessel.

3 Puramyst {block_title} onboard sanitation

Sterilise your living space and make it safe.

Be safe onboard against airborne and touch viruses

  • Effective surface and air decontamination and sterilisation
  • Micro-particle technology is dry on contact
  • Effective against spores, moulds and bacteria
  • Effective against MRSA, Norovirus, Flu and respiratory viruses
  • High Kill rate (99.999%)
  • Ultimate defence on-board against bacteria and viruses

Don’t risk costly illness on-board

When it comes to the safe environment of your yacht, you cannot afford to risk the well-being of crew and guests. Ensure the very highest levels of protection with a total sterilisation solution from PuraMyst.

Safe to use on furnishings

PuraMyst completely sterilises walls, floors and surfaces to remove hidden threats and leaves no visible trace or residues. There’s no need to cover any surfaces or soft furnishings. PuraMyst is safe to use on any surface including fabrics.

The process

Using specialised equipment our technicians move through your vessel and emit a dry mist that moves like a fog. The team spray the entire area (or selected areas) with a specialised biocide which is perfectly acceptable for humans but is deadly for airborne and surface pathogens. It contains a safe biocide which eradicates 99.999% of all airborne and surface pathogens and viruses including MRSA, Norovirus, Legionnaires, Salmonella, as well as modern viruses that can cause flu-like and respiratory symptoms.

Sterilising your vessel can help towards your COSWP obligations.

4 Flushing of grey water lines {block_title} onboard sanitation

Our unique system flushes sinks, showers, urinals and galley floor drains with minimal disruption.

Puracator is a unique machine that has been specially designed to prevent blockages and keep onboard drains clean and infection-free, often without the need to dismantle much of the pipework making it less disruptive for engineers and crew alike.

  • Cleaning - Puracator delivers a none damaging pressurised ‘ring’ of hot water which, combined with a de-greasing agent, removes fatty deposits and fungi from the entire inner surface of the pipework, including any bio-film which may have formed on the inner surface of the pipework.
  • Preventing - We then apply with the Puracator a biocide treatment to inhibit future bacteria growth

Adopting an “out of sight out of mind” attitude towards the cleanliness of a vessel’s sinks, showers and galley drains is not recommended!

Dirty drains containing bio film and bacteria can be costly in terms of health issues and downtime due to blockages, both of which can be inconvenient and expensive in the long term.

A genuinely clean and odour-free bathroom will greatly enhance the onboard experience and go a long way to preventing infections, health issues and associated expense.

Your guests and crew not only want to feel clean, they need the reassurance that their environment is germ free.

For this to happen, you need to look below the surface.
