Crew Agents.

Most days I have a message or two asking about the in’s & outs of Crew Agency’s. To be honest, there are A LOT out there & every season more and more pop up. In terms of hiring crew, there’s a specific few that I use. Over the years I have been able to build relationships with agents & know that they are going to send me candidates that fit our specific job specs. I find it to be a little too much getting too many agents involved when looking to fill role onboard, they tend to start overlapping with one another & my email inbox gets a little crazy. So I know try to keep it limited to 2 or 3 agencies at most.

When I’m on the other end of it & job hunting myself, I sign up to EVERY-SINGLE-AGENCY. It takes time, it can feel overwhelming, but it is SO worth it. A few years ago while looking for a new yacht, I heard of a small boutique agency while out with friends on a Thursday night. I signed up Friday morning & by Saturday I had been contacted by a boat & joined them that week, staying onboard for over a year. That’s the funny thing about yachting, finding the right position is often about being at the right place at the right time.

I always suggest to crew that they login to their online profiles just before 8am Monday-Friday. Majority of agency websites are chronological order based off of when you last logged in. Basically, the more you login, the higher up your name will be on a master list & it increases the chances of you getting noticed.

Hello! My name is Gemma, the girl behind The Yacht Stew. After 7 years of working on yachts, I wanted to create a platform where I could share my stories, travels & passions. I have been asked a million and one times “What do you actually do working on a yacht?” – hopefully this blog will give you a good insight. I’m so excited to share my travels & stories with you.
