Owners and captains seeking crew

The appointment of the right captain and crew is crucial to the success of your yacht and we understand that the needs of each yacht owner are unique. We react quickly to all enquiries and aim to put forward candidates that are not only suitably experienced and qualified but that also fit in well with the owner, their family and business so that the service provided is smooth and seamless.

Having the right captain and crew on board, with the right experience, drive and of course qualifications gives peace of mind to a yacht owner. It's no secret that a properly run and maintained yacht retains a much higher value long-term, and with a professional crew, the risk of incidents on board is greatly reduced.

Ben Young, the founder and Managing Director of Sunseeker Crew, is himself a Class IV, 3000 tonne licensed Captain with a wealth of knowledge of the yachting industry. His recruitment team have between them decades of experience operating some of the world’s finest motoryachts. They have acted in a variety of positions on a global basis so are well qualified to find the right candidate for the job.

Our recruitment team is constantly appraising new captains and crew and is happy to discuss any requirements you may have. Whether you require a captain or crew on a seasonal or long-term basis, we can submit a number of suitable candidates for your approval. All candidates are pre-interviewed and references and qualifications are checked and verified before we submit their details to you, ultimately saving you time and expense. Our captains are certified up to Master (Yachts) under 3000 GRT, so can professionally operate any Sunseeker motoryacht worldwide.

We can provide advice on salaries, contracts and on the minimum safe manning requirements of your chosen flag state authority. What sets us apart from other recruitment agencies is that we can, as Sunseeker specialists, provide hand-over and familiarisation training to new captains.
