Global Services was founded primarily to source engineering spares and equipment for yachts. Since the beginning we’ve employed skilled and knowledgeable engineers who have a wealth of experience in both commercial and private yachting. Our job is to make your life simple and if you have an engineering problem, our team can help you find the solution. If it’s parts or spares you need, we can track them down and get them to you quickly.
Our most popular range of on board storage containers includes George Utz and Zarges cases. The Utz RAKO range of transport and storage cases come in different sizes and are based on a frame design that gives them their unrivalled strength. Stackable, light-weight and waterproof, they are the ideal on board storage system. Zarges manufacture a 'Eurobox' - a light-weight aluminium alloy cases that's not only strong and stackable, but looks smart too. Peli are known for designing a range of waterproof and crushproof cases that offer total protection in virtually any situation.
For tools there are a number of popular choices including the Bott Vario Marine range of tool cabinets - modules that can be designed to fit the appropriate space and function. Snap-On and Facom are the most popular tool storage options with a range of features from lockable wheels, tool hanging systems, interchangeable drawers and a range of accessories allowing you to customise your own tool storage. As well as tool procurement, we also offer a full tooling inventory solution. More details can be found here.
Engines & Generators
We have accounts with all of the main manufacturers of superyacht engines including MTU and Caterpillar and supply all of the related parts and consumables. Many of the generator manufacturers use generic engines. If you give us the engine details we can source either from the generator company or from the engine manufacturers. For outboard motors, we are usually asked to supply Yamaha, but we source all major brands including SOLAS approved engines.
Calpeda offer some small, compact pumps through to ones suitable for AC units. Speck are best known for their hydrophore pumps which have been used on yachts for many years. Jabsco manufacture flexible impeller and diaphragm pumps whereas Gianneschi are renowned for producing custom pumps with non-standard production output voltages.
We are the UK agents for Hamann and our in-house engineers can refurbish and commission Hamann plants all over the UK. The Hamann Slim Line Plus 02 water treatment plant is proving extremely popular as is does not require chemicals or consumables and there are no membranes or filters involved. We supply all brands of water treatment equipment including Jets and HEM.
We are agents for Cathelco, the leading manufacturers of cathodic protection and anti-foul systems. Cathelco make units to protect both steel and aluminium hulls from corrosion. Cathelco’s impressed current cathodic protection (ICCP) systems have major advantages in comparison with traditional sacrificial anode methods.
There are a number of desalinators on the market but Cathelco Seafresh appear to be the most requested make for yachts. We supply the desalinator and all of the relevant spares which includes pre-filter elements, plus a range of consumable items including oil for the high pressure pump, various seals, disinfectant and preservative powder, plus service kits for the pump.
Global Services started as an engine parts and spares supplier, so we have years of experience in sourcing the right part for the job. We’re commonly asked for gaskets in a range of materials including rubber, rubber insertion, graphite high temperature, cork for oil, general purpose and paper. We also supply bearings, stainless steel fixings and fastenings and engineering kits.
Consumables cover a whole host of products from cleaning materials, glues and lubricants through to oil spill kits. The Loctite range of products is extremely popular as are products such as Swarfega, WD40 and Rocol Anti Seize compound. The oil spill kits and absorbents are designed to contain oils and fuels whilst repelling water which makes them ideal for deck and engine use.
Valves & Separators
We can supply all types of valves and actuators to suit the system requirements of your vessel to classification and society specification if required. Bilge water separator and air filter separator requirements depend on the size and classification of the yacht. We’ve also put Rubber Design bellows in this section which offer solutions for noise, vibration and shock-related problems.
