Those working in yacht jobs in France will have no doubt heard of the new social security law which applies to non-French yacht crew residing in France as of July 1st 2017.
Antibes is the go-to destination for crew in search of a yacht job, and YPI CREW is the go-to agency in Antibes. With the Mediterranean season well underway, qualified crew candidates should waste no time in applying for suitable positions.
Updated 20/06/2017: Please note, this position is now filled.
As the leading recruiter for superyacht jobs, YPI CREW consistently matches the best yacht crew candidates with the best yacht crew jobs. As crews make final preparations for the summer yachting season, there is still an opportunity to gain your dream job at sea.
Many luxury yachts are now arriving in Mediterranean ports after lengthy trips from the Caribbean and beyond. The start of the Mediterranean yachting season offers a prime opportunity for prospective crew to find work on yachts of all sizes.
My name is Michael Wilshaw and I have been a professional chef for nearly two decades. At the end of the Mediterranean season, after a busy summer at sea, Helen at YPI CREW asked me if I was interested in going on a three-day course, or ‘formation’, at the Ducasse Education Training Centre near Paris. I jumped at the chance, booked myself a hotel, organised my flights and three weeks later I was honing my skills the Alain Ducasse way! This is a brief account of my experience there.
YPI CREW is the industry leading recruiter for yacht crew jobs and has been a go-to authority since 2002. Based in Antibes, we help the most discerning Captains and Owners find the most suitable candidates for their superyacht jobs.
Not just a reflection of prospects for yachting employees, crew recruitment data underpins insightful market analysis of the yachting industry itself. An average 100m superyacht requires around 50 yacht crewmembers. Accordingly, as the length of yachts and numbers launched increase, so does the requirement for crew. YPI CREW compiled data which suggests that the yachting industry is going from strength to strength.
We are looking for a recruiter to join our well established Interior department - recognised as the leading authority in the yacht crew recruitment industry.
