Yacht crew placement
Having the right crew on board is vital to not just the safe operation of your yacht but also the happiness of your time on board. We will work with you to find the best crew to suit your requirements.
Finding the right crew
Your yacht is effectively an extension of your home and you will spend some of your most precious moments there; whether it’s enjoying a family cruise, celebrating a loved ones birthday or exploring a new destination, you want to make sure that you can relax and enjoy every moment on board. Fraser understands this, and the need for your vessel to be run safely and efficiently and will work with you to understand your requirements and then find the most suitable crew members to be employed on your yacht.
Worldwide Access To Qualified Crew
Our aim is to hand-pick the most appropriate shortlist of potential crew members. Crew placement is about truly understanding every aspect of the vacant position so we can find you specific individuals with the relevant qualifications, personality, experience and skill set. Working closely with The Crew Network, our subsidiary company, we are constantly networking with literally tens of thousands of crew members face-to-face, on the telephone and via the internet. Our sole goal is to find the right candidate for you. Our recipe for success: building extensive relationships and identifying exactly the right crew for your yacht.
Benefits of V.Ships
Our owning company V.Ships is specialised in crewing services for luxury cruise lines such as Silversea and Seabourne. Working with them and their database of over 40,000 sea farers we can identify crew from the cruise industry who may be ready to move into luxury yachting. This is particularly beneficial for larger yachts who need crew that are more familiar with larger layouts and manning requirements.
All of the The Crew Network offices are fully MLC 2006 Compliant (Maritime Labour Convention), this certification means that our crew placement offices operate in accordance with MLC regulation 1.4, following the strict requirements. The MLC 2006 came into force as a result of the International Labour Organisation (ILO) Initiative that was designed to regulate the employment of seafarers working aboard commercial vessels, including luxury charter yachts that are registered for commercial use, ensuring the protection of welfare and employment conditions and for all seafarers working on those vessels.
