We have found work for thousands of yacht crew over the years and have helped numerous captains in building their teams — join them!
I have had the pleasure of working with the YPI CREW team for nearly 20 years. They have a professional and hands-on approach. Always ready to assist no matter the time of day. An email is always followed up by a call, ensuring the right candidates are presented. YPI CREW are the key player in the industry and without a doubt, my go-to recruitment agency.
