YPI CREW, the established front-runner in yacht crew placement.
April, May and June are traditionally the busiest months of the year in yacht crew recruitment but the question is: Is this still the case in 2022 when our industry is navigating the biggest shake up for a generation following the sanctions many Russian yachts are facing?
As always at the beginning of the year, we are pleased to share some data with our community. 2021 was the year of revival for the yachting industry with all key economic indicators turning green. YPI CREW came through the pandemic stronger and this was thanks to our formidable recruiters and employees who showed great agility and adaptability and I would like to record my thanks to them all.

We have teamed up with The Crew Coach, Karine Rayson, to organise a virtual CV Workshop for all the yacht crew that want their CV to shine!

The Antibes Lifeboat Station is asking for your kind donations to help it reach its goal to purchase an inshore lifeboat.

Our annual yacht industry statistics for yacht crew recruitment are now in, and are an invaluable tool in helping our entire industry understand the state of yachting today.
