From Crew Placement to Visa Services and Travel Arrangements, we fully understand the rigors and difficulties of crew life and do everything we can to make it easier.
We often get requests from yacht crew looking for work, and we keep a database of names and CVs on hand so that we can help supply qualified crew to our clients' yachts. If you are a yacht captain or owner looking for crew please contact us and we'll find a solution for you.
If you are looking for work on a yacht please email your CV/resume to us at firstname.lastname@example.org with a brief email with the position you are looking for, or come to our offices with a digital copy of your CV/resume. Include whether you are available for Day Work. We will set up a brief interview and go from there.
