Tell us what crew members you're looking for and we'll find the right candidates for your yacht



Yacht Search Recruitment was efficient and thorough in matching the yacht with potential candidates. Elizabeth was a pleasure to work with, thoughtful and with natural insight into the yachts requirements. I would not hesitate to recommend them for your recruitment needs.

Yacht Search Recruitment was effective and friendly in finding crew candidates. I always had five to choose from and that made it easy to make a decision. The candidate we ended up choosing has been a joy to work with.
