Beyond the Internet-based crew agencies, there are a couple online yacht crew job listing sites where you may search and apply for specific jobs that catch your eye. They work slightly different than the Internet-only agencies and are separated out for that reason.
Yacht Crew Register, while based online, operates more like traditional agencies. And SuperyachtJobs.com is more of a job aggregator that will then funnel you over to the traditional agency that has posted the job—from there you must register with the respective agency to apply. Either of these options are a great way to learn about job opportunities. Find their information and useful social media sites below:
|Website & Social Media
|SuperyachtJobs — SuperyachtJobs.com
Operated by the very reputable The Superyacht Group, which publishes The Crew Report magazine.
|SuperyachtJobs.com provides a space for crew at all levels to explore the superyacht jobs market. It is a portal for all recruitment companies, managers, agents, and yachts to promote vacancies and secure the most experienced teams for new and existing yachts. Jobs available, jobs wanted, day worker vacancies, relief crew, training courses, and career advice form the backbone of this website, with a view to encouraging new people to explore the large-yacht world and see it as a professional career and not a short-term opportunity. Think of it like a content aggregator, gathering up jobs from partnered agencies and making them available to job candidates in one place. You can also register on the site to allow employers to access your profile and accompanying résumé/CV.
If you wish to apply for any positions though, you’ll be linked over to the agency that has posted the listing. From there, you’ll have to go through the actual agency, not directly with the employer. Still, as you move to decide which agencies with whom you might register, this is a great way to go in with a purpose—that is, by having spotted that job you know you’re perfect for.

|Website: Yacht Crew Register is an independent yacht-crew placement agency focused solely on crew placement for the maintenance and operation of private and charter yachts. Owned and operated by Darcy Narraway, Yacht Crew Register has been successfully placing crew since 1995 while providing personalized service with the same clients for close to twenty years.

View listings of available jobs, and to apply to ones where you see a fit by sending your résumé/CV, photos, and references to the specially designated email addresses for your position. Darcy will arrange to interview applicants if there’s a match. Note that he specializes more in the placement of captains, so stew jobs may not be as plentiful.
