In the yachting world mediation may, for example, involve a refit having gone wrong, with the Owner complaining of inferior work and overcharges while the shipyard is complaining of poor specifications, unanticipated changes and slow payments. The obvious common ground, at a minimum, is getting the yacht out of the shipyard and the conflicts eliminated. A good mediator will work off of these common grounds to assist the parties in addressing each of their concerns in a productive manner.
However, the most significant frustration with mediation is that there are an extraordinarily few mediators that are experienced with yacht or superyacht matters. They may be experienced mediators, but without the special knowledge of the many nuances and practices in our industry they are hard-pressed to effectively assist. In fact, without the appropriate background much time and effort can be wasted trying to explain that which is obvious to the experienced yacht industry mediator resulting in a frustrating and ineffective experience.
