Interested in how to get started in the yachting industry? The links below will help you navigate to lists of crew resources that you will find handy when beginning a yacht crew job search:
- Essential Training for Entry-Level Crew: Learning the Ropes—Training is essential. Training to get on a boat, and more than anything, to stay on it. I provide a list of both STCW BST certification schools and Interior-Crew training courses. (More being added all the time.)
- Crew House Options: Picking Up Anchor—A list of crew house options in the key hiring ports around the world.
- Crew Placement Agencies: Let the job hunt begin—One of the best ways to break into the yachting industry is through the crew placement or recruitment agencies (referred to by most as simply “crew agencies”).
- Note: If you’ve received your book by now, we will be adding the promised information on crew health insurance, tax specialists for yacht crew, and crew networking spots in popular ports around the world soon. Check back in September for all of that information! And thanks for your patience.
