Ensuring Marine Safety & Reliability

Robert Zarco, a prominent civil commercial trial lawyer based in Miami Beach, Florida, has a deep-rooted passion for boating that transcends mere hobbyist interest. Having acquired his first boat at the age of 14, he gradually progressed to fulfill his dream of owning a Formula boat, with the 400 Super Sport purchased in 2017 marking his 14th Formula vessel. His affinity for Formula Boats stems from their exceptional quality, craftsmanship, style, and unparalleled performance. 

Despite the joy boating brings him, Robert acknowledges the challenges of marine maintenance. Understanding that regular maintenance is vital for safety and reliability, he emphasizes the importance of a well-organized maintenance program. As a meticulous individual, he relies significantly on Vessel Vanguard to streamline and facilitate this crucial aspect of boat ownership.

Vessel Vanguard, a Software as a Service (SaaS) application for marine maintenance, transforms the complex upkeep of boats into a systematic routine. Robert underscores the significance of this tool for Formula boat owners, emphasizing its user-friendly nature and comprehensive coverage of every element of the vessel. Through automated maintenance schedules, custom checklists, and digital access to the vessel’s history, owners gain control over maintenance tasks with ease.  

Robert highlights the utility of Vessel Vanguard in ensuring the thorough examination of critical components such as galvanic isolators, preventing oversight and costly mistakes. Since the collaboration between Formula and Vessel Vanguard in 2014, Formula customers, including Robert, receive a five-year subscription with each new boat.

For Robert, the benefits of Vessel Vanguard extend beyond financial savings and convenience. The peace of mind derived from regular maintenance translates to short-term cost savings by preventing compounding issues. In the long run, the meticulously documented maintenance history enhances the resale value of his boats.
