The Antigua Charter Yacht Show has closed its doors for another year, being heralded a great success not only for the 70+ yachts that were exhibited but also for the incredible spirit of solidarity displayed in the wake of the devastating hurricane season. For all attending, including some recruitment agents from YPI CREW, it was a show to remember.
Following great success at the Antigua Charter Yacht Show last week - at which some of our recruitment agents met yacht crew and got the chance to see them in action - the YPI CREW team is ready to tackle the winter recruitment season, fulfilling your crew requirements and placing the best candidates in the best superyacht jobs.
Laurence Lewis says it’s not all about answers, you should have questions you want answered too.
An important topic for yacht crew, social security laws have featured greatly in yachting news in 2017, owing to the implementation of a new decree early in the year.
YPI is the leading recruiter of superyacht crew. Since 2002, our experienced recruitment agents have been placing the most qualified candidates with the best crews on superyachts of all sizes and on vessels across the globe.
YPI CREW proudly showcases the talents of skilled crew and matches the best candidates with the most appealing yacht crew jobs, regardless of gender. We took the time to speak to three female deckhands to learn more about how they got into the yachting industry and what their roles involve.
While the end of the Monaco Yacht Show may signal the end of the summer yachting season, there are still yacht crew jobs available for those in search of work.
If anyone was going to start an automotive business aimed directly and exclusively at yacht crewmembers, it makes perfect sense for it to have been Mark Upton - a man who has a wealth of his own experience working on yachts and a passion for cars. Having already founded the company CrewFo, which provides expert financial advice for superyacht crew, Upton recently turned his attentions from the high seas to four wheels.
It goes without saying that a yacht jobs are not without their difficulties. But a career as a superyacht chef may be one of the routes with the most amount of pressure in the yacht crew industry. Each and every dish that leaves the galley must look and taste absolutely perfect. There is no time for complacency, no room for slacking, and definitely no space for carelessness. Yacht chefs are expected to be innovators, experimentalists, and creators. They must remember preferences, allergies, and dislikes. There is no respite from the continual need for top quality service. Superyacht chefs must be versatile, dedicated, and calm. It is no surprise, then, that superyacht chefs often come with previous experience in luxury establishments on land – whether Michelin-starred restaurants or 5-star hotels.
