the perfect match
A luxury yacht without a knowledgeable crew is like a car without wheels. When owning a yacht, it is essential to have a good functioning crew, people that you trust and that you can rely on. People who work well together, who know how to handle difficult situations at sea, and a team that knows how to pamper charter guests to the max. The management of a luxury yacht crew can take a lot of time, and this is one of the most valuable commodities you have. We gladly assist you and your captain by handling the administrative duties and quality checks. And if you don’t have a captain or crew just yet, we are more than happy to find the perfect fit for you and your vessel.

The components of Yacht Crew Management.
Crew Administration includes recruiting, reference checks, and credentials for owners and their captains. As part of the pre-employment process, we review the applicants’ documents and verify their validity if requested. After approval, they receive their employment contract. We also manage crew salaries, make travel arrangements, and handle all crew insurance matters upon request.
An exceptional and qualified crew is the key to the success of a luxury yacht. Our collaboration with “The Crew Network,” the largest crew agency in the world, allows us to assist in finding the right crew for your project. Currently, The Crew Network has over 45.000 crew members in its database. Potential yacht crew members are screened for all aspects of their skills in order to assure yacht operation at the highest level. After the selection process, we create an employment contract that is approved by the MLC and complies with flag regulations.
