YPI CREW celebrates 20 years of yacht crew recruitment

YPI CREW marked 20 years of building yachting careers with a celebration at the historical Bastide du Roy, in the South of France’s Antibes, a villa famous for being the former residence of French kings Henry IV and Louis XV.

The celebration was attended by the senior yacht crew, yacht management and industry players.

For the past 20 years the yacht crew recruitment team at YPI CREW has allowed new generations to discover yachting, seasoned crew to further their careers and widen their talent base – bonding people together and creating new connections is what the recruiters at YPI CREW enjoy doing.


“Our 20th Anniversary party was a magical moment, it was nice to share this milestone event with so many industry captains, crew,  colleagues and friends. Recruitment is a people’s business, one where especially in the yachting industry,  you help shape a career and make someone’s dreams come true;  To me, this is why recruitment is such a wonderful industry to be in, this is what gives me the energy to develop and to evolve.

Some of our guests have been clients, candidates and friends for twenty years, some have more recently crossed our path, all are important and to all I say “Thank you for your trust and partnership”. Not everybody was able to make the event, the season is still in full swing for some yachts, you were missed and we look forward to catching up later on.” – Laurence Lewis, President of YPI CREW.
